For those who aren't on the FB group:

Hey guys, Hi-Rez got back to me about the possibility of distribution of T:V over Steam and as expected it's a no go. Hopefully the following will clear out any misunderstandings related to the rights and IP ownership. Identity omitted to protect them from nerd rage.

"Thanks for your interest. My understanding is that Hi-Rez Studios, Inc. owns the Tribes franchise, which includes the intellectual property rights in and to the video-game titled "Tribes Vengeance." My further understanding is that the distribution rights for Tribes Vengeance are not for sale, and that publishing Tribes Vengeance or any derivation thereof on Steam would be unauthorized and in violation of Hi-Rez's intellectual property rights.

We hope this email addresses your request vis-à-vis Steam, and appreciate your support of the Tribes franchise."
