Recent talked Remedy and Take Two Dispute reportedly been resolved.
The End of Remedy and Take Two Dispute
Take Two has filed two trademark disputes against Remedy regarding their new introduced logo, which contains R letter, the same as Rockstar Games. Remedy Entertainment adopted the logo in April, telling fans that it represented the veteran Finnish developer’s evolution over the years.
According to the media, this dispute could have create bad blood between two companies, but it seems like this issue was already resolved.
Journalist Stephen Totilo recently revealed on Twitter that the trademark dispute between Remedy Entertainment and Take Two Interactive had already been completely resolved in an amicable manner late last year. The filings themselves were just an initial formality, Totilo claimed, citing a representative for Remedy Entertainment.
In a statement sent to IGN, the developer explained that the filings took longer to complete due to holiday scheduling, adding that it and Take Two Interactive continue to work together as partners.
As Remedy Entertainment and Take Two Interactive have joined forces to deliver remakes of the first two Max Payne games, these latest developments should be a source of relief for fans of the series. While Remedy Entertainment created Max Payne, Rockstar Games currently owns the rights to the franchise. Rockstar Games, which published Max Payne 1 and Max Payne 2: The Fall of Max Payne, has also provided funding to Remedy Entertainment for the remakes’ development.
