Due to a trademark violation, The Day Before is slated to be released.
According to the tweet, Steam had requested a private individual to remove our game page because of the name The Day Before. The above mentioned individual filed an application before us to register the game trademark The Day Before in the United States. https://uspto.report/TM/79314174 ».
"We were unaware of the allegations previously." said MYTONA and FNTASTIC, adding, "Now we understand all the facts and will definitely resolve everything."
"We initially intended to record a lengthy gameplay video later this month, but we'll have to sort this out first," said the developer and publisher, adding that "we've made the difficult decision to postpone the release of the game until November 10, 2023."
The strange part of the statement is that if the game was ready to go, a name change would not affect the quality, and so the creator is taking advantage of this opportunity to improve the game.
"Our 100% attention remains on the game itself and how to provide you the best gaming possible", concludes the statement, adding that "We "remain committed to providing you the finest gaming possible."
FNTASTIC states in a follow-up that "We will consult with lawyers first, then we can publish it."
The Day Before Steam page for the United Kingdom is no longer available.
