Remedy and Rockstar’s Trademark Dispute Has Already Been Resolved

One of the more amusingly bizarre news stories of the early days of 2024 arrived earlier this week when it emerged that Rockstar Games’ parent company Take-Two Interactive had filed a trademark dispute against Remedy Entertainment’s new logo, claiming that it was too similar to the GTA maker’s logo, which also prominently displays a stylized “R”.

It turns out, however, that the issue had been sorted before it was ever reported on. Journalist Stephen Totilo recently confirmed the news on Twitter, stating that as per what a Remedy Entertainment representative has told him, the aforementioned legal filing was little more than “an initial formality”, and that the dispute was “resolved entirely and amicably” in late 2023.

“There is nothing to see here – this was a discussion between our teams that was resolved entirely and amicably late last year,” the Remedy representative said, as per Totilo. “The legal filing was simply an initial formality, and Remedy and Take-Two continue to work together in partnership.”

The partnership in question is, of course, Remedy Entertainment and Rockstar Games’ collaboration on a combined remake of Max Payne 1 and 2, which is being developed by the former. Remedy said in October that the project had moved into the “production readiness” stage.
