PlayPark, the premiere game publisher of MMORPGs such as Cabal, Elyon, RF Online, Tera Classic, and more, has made public its statement about the claim of E-Games to bring back old games, which includes Cabal.

On a recent social media post, E-games announced that it will be bringing back its classic games including Cabal, which is currently rightfully and legally owned by Playpark. The post went viral with an accumulated 26K shares and 6.6K comments as of this writing. The news reached Playpark and has now issued a statement that it will pursue legal actions if the other company continues its republishing of Cabal.

Below is the official statement from PlayPark:

We are the only company with the official license to publish CABAL in the region thanks to our long-standing partnership with the game’s developer ESTgames.

Recently, it has come to our attention that a Facebook page using the account name “E-Games” has announced that it will be bringing back CABAL. The owners of this “E-Games” Facebook page is not affiliated with us, and should caution players from engaging with them.

Any and all instances of the CABAL logo being used in any form to deliver the game to users outside of PlayPark is a violation of the partnership we have with the game developer and as such, is not supported by said developer in any way.

Please refrain from entertaining or playing CABAL on privately-owned instances of the game as the entities behind them are not in contact with the game developer and are doing this purely for their own benefit.

Should this “E-Games” Facebook page continue with its intention to publish or distribute CABAL, then we will be forced to take all legal actions available to us under Republic Act 8293 – or the Intellectual Property Code – and in other applicable laws to protect our license, our partner developer, and the public.”
