Earlier this week, The Day Earlier than developer FNTASTIC introduced their plans to launch uncooked gameplay footage of the upcoming zombie survival MMO later this month. Sadly, that’s now been pushed again indefinitely whereas the sport’s launch has been delayed to November attributable to a trademark dispute.

Based on FNTASTIC and the sport’s writer, MYTONA, they’d but to file a trademark for the sport’s title even after the sport was formally introduced in January 2022. Sadly, their failure to take action has come again to chunk them within the behind. A personal particular person had apparently filed a trademark for the title in Could 2021 which was solely authorized later in 2022.

The stated particular person is known as Solar Jae Lee who reportedly has a number of patents for battery-related tech in South Korea. The Day Earlier than is his first and solely trademark within the US although. Lee lately filed a grievance with Valve who instantly delisted the sport on Steam, as is the case with all beforehand filed copyright and trademark complaints.

Whereas eagerly ready followers can now relaxation simple realizing that the sport remains to be alive, they’re going to have to attend a bit longer for it to launch. In mild of its trademark points, the workforce has determined to delay the sport’s launch from March to November and might want to seek the advice of with their attorneys first earlier than they’ll launch the promised gameplay footage.

There’s hypothesis, nonetheless, that there could also be extra to the prolonged delay than the trademark dispute. Eurogamer notes that FNTASTIC’s feedback about their dedication to delivering the “greatest sport potential” means that the studio could also be going through different improvement challenges other than one other individual claiming possession of the sport’s title.

I don’t profess to be an professional in sport improvement however altering a sport’s title and every other belongings that use it shouldn’t take eight months to do. We’d love to listen to extra from anybody who’s has extra information on the matter within the feedback part beneath.
