Bethesda: Nobody enjoys being ‘forced’ to sue Mojang

Bethesda VP of marketing Pete Hines is providing some context for its case against Minecraft-dev Mojang’s coming title, Scrolls, saying Mojang hasn’t fairly presented Bethesda’s side of the fight (probably because it’s on the side against Bethesda). “Mojang’s public comments have not given a complete picture as it relates to their filings…
