Digital games distributor Desura has been late to pay developers that publish games on its online store. The company admitted as much in a post to its official site yesterday where it apologized for the delay and tried to explain the issue.
“The issues have stemmed from a number of factors coming together in a bad way,” Head of Developer Relations Lisa Morrison said. “The acquisition of the company last year has presented us with a number of very difficult issues to tackle, and we have been clearing those hurdles as efficiently as we are able. This has been compounded by the office being relocated, and by the current hospitalization of our CEO.”
Developers have been complaining about late payments since last year, when Desura was acquired by Bad Juju. Desura was previously owned by Linden Labs, the company behind Second Life. The digital distribution platform primarily focuses on independent games, but it carries many games you’re probably familiar with, including Five Nights at Freddy’s, Amnesia: The Dark Descent, Serious Sam 3, and many more.
Morrison assured developers that the company might be late, but that it “will absolutely be paying all accounts due.”
