The ongoing dispute between the co-founders of development studio Hivemind has now been resolved, and the remaining team now plans to take the company forward and pursue its original visions.

The "person gaming" start-up was founded late last year, and quickly fell into disarray as chief executive Jawad Ansari filed a lawsuit against industry veteran Will Wright to protect his 30 percent equity in Hivemind. Wright later countersued.

However, the duo says it has now settled its differences, reaching "a friendly and respectful resolution," according to Wright.

The statement does not reveal the ins and outs of the resolution, but does note that Ansari is moving on to devote his full energy to his newly launched start-up initiative GCube Special Situations Fund.

As for Wright, he says that the news will allow the Hive Mind team "to pursue opportunities in the dynamic online game industry," although he does not explicitly state whether he has a continued relationship with the Hivemind team. Gamasutra has contacted Wright for confirmation.
