Indie Company Changes Their Game's Name After Bethesda Opposes Trademark

As of when we write this, their website is currently down. But indie developer No Matter Studios made an announcement that their upcoming title, Prey For The Gods, would be getting a name change due to the fact that Bethesda asked them to change it.

With Bethesda's own Prey coming out this week, the company went after No Matter and opposed their trademark of the game's name. Rather than fight it as the bigger game comes out, the indie team chose to alter their name slightly to Praey for the Gods. Originally they tried changing it to Præy, but Bethesda took issue with that change as well. For now, the company is still being allowed to use the artwork seen above with a praying woman in the vowel's spot. In case you're wondering, that's the only similarity the two titles share, as the indie title is more of an homage to Shadow Of The Colossus. Here's the original reveal trailer for the game when it was announced in 2015, which I remember seeing and thinking that looked pretty awesome. Of course, at the time I also thought The Last Guardian was still dead and hoping for anything with giant monsters, so we'll see how the final version works out when it finally gets released.
