FOX Go Bananas After Family Guy Game Gets Released Early

There's a new Family game for mobile, called Family Guy: The Quest for Stuff. It's not out yet, but for a few hours earlier today, it was accidentally made available on New Zealand's app store. Something FOX was not very happy about.


As Touch Arcade reports, because the game was live on an app store, people picked it up, legally, started playing, then started making videos of what they were playing. Rather than roll with the free press, FOX went the jerk route.

YouTube user Hans Kaosu received a message from the Family Guy team, which while itself was pretty polite, was swiftly followed by a takedown notice of his video.

Followed by the takedown of his entire Twitch account, since he'd also showed some gameplay footage there.

Other Touch Arcade users who had posted video say the same thing.

And so here we are, saying nasty things about FOX instead of talking about the actual game.
