Alan Wake 2 Devs Have Beef With Rockstar. It's All About Letter "R”

Take-Two has concerns about the Remedy Entertainment studio's logo. An investigation is underway.

In April last year, Remedy Entertainment presented its new logo, which - as it turned out - Take-Two Interactive did not like. The owner of, e.g. Rockstar Games, has objections about the letter "R" in the new logo of the creators of Alan Wake II.

Take-Two is in a dispute with Remedy Entertainment over one letter

As we know, Rockstar also uses a logo with a prominent "R". The use of this letter in the central place of the logo by a competing studio could confuse customers less familiar with the industry, which was probably one of the main reasons for Take-Two's claim.

  1. Take-Two filed two objections in the British trademark office: one regarding the logo containing only the controversial letter "R", and the other regarding the trademark supplemented with the name "Remedy".
  2. Interestingly, the Remedy studio revealed its new logo in April 2023, and the relevant documents were submitted to the office a month later - on May 11.
  3. Currently, the objections have been noted and have been in the "clarification" phase in the UK since September. European Union Intellectual Property Office is also involved in the proceedings to clarify this dispute between Take-Two and Rockstar and Remedy.

For now, we don't know how this matter will end. Perhaps eventually the creators of Alan Wake II will have to "refine" their logo again. It is also possible that the American giant will be forced to come to terms with the whole situation. We will certainly wait for the resolution of this dispute.

GTA 6 and Alan Wake 2 are priorities now

Despite this "quarrel", both companies primarily focus on their productions. We already know what Remedy's Alan Wake 2 is like, but the developer is currently working on two DLC to this game.

Things are definitely more heated at Rockstar Games. In this case, fans are eagerly awaiting the sixth installment of the cult GTA series, which was recently revealed in the first trailer. So far, this trailer has been viewed 168 million times, which only proves how great the expectations are for this game.
