CD Projekt Red Explains Their Side of the Story on CYBERPUNK Trademark

The Witcher series developer and creators of the addictive GWENT card game, CD Projekt Red, turned a few heads when they submitted a trademark for ‘CYBERPUNK’. After all the term is associated with many original game creations already and can be used as a genre definition. Trying to trademark something that can be that widespread seems foolhardy. Well, the developer has finally spoken out about their goal and what they’re trying to do.

When CD Projekt Red first acquired the rights to make a video game based on Mike Pondsmith’s universe, CYBERPUNK 2013 AND CYBERPUNK 2020, they also received the trademark registrations already in effect. So anything Mr. Pondsmith already enacted for trademark is now property of CD Projekt Red. In an effort to protect this, they also filed for the word ‘CYBERPUNK’ to protect their ability to create CYBERPUNK 2077 and future projects. Essentially snatching up the term so others couldn’t have it and sell the rights.

They also clarified what trademarks mean to them. CD Projekt Red reiterated that the use of describing and setting a different game in a Cyberpunk world is not restricted. It’s just that other developers can’t use it for branding/advertising purposes while relating their work to CYBERPUNK 2077. You can view their full statement below.

The upcoming game from the creators of the Danganronpa series has found a publisher in Sony subsidiary Aniplex. However, it’s worth noting that it won’t be initially released on the PS5. It is highly likely that The Hundred Line: Last Defense Academy will be released on Sony’s system at a later date, just like Master Detective Archives: Rain Code in October. However, the development team is currently focusing on prioritizing the release of their latest title on the Nintendo Switch and PC.

Described as a strategy game, the title allows players to step into the shoes of teenager Takumi Sumino, who resides in the perpetually secure Tokyo Residential Complex. When monsters suddenly unleash chaos upon the town, Takumi finds himself thrust into the Last Defense Academy. His mission? To protect the school alongside 14 other students for a grueling 100 days.

As one would anticipate, alongside the strategic gameplay, it is crucial to foster strong relationships with your comrades. Moreover, the outcome of the game can vary greatly, with a staggering 100 possible endings contingent upon the choices you make. We will reach out to Aniplex to inquire about the possibility of a PS5 port. However, it is important to note that Aniplex operates independently from PlayStation, as it falls under the Sony Music umbrella.

Most new games these days have some kind of photography feature, so it’s hard to remember a time before Photo Modes. Some developers don’t think it’s important for players to be able to take pictures right away, so the feature is added later. One great example of this is Alan Wake 2, which now has Photo Mode thanks to a new update that is now available.

If you look at the trailer above, you can see that you can really get creative with your photos by adding cool borders, overlays, and filters. We always like photo modes, where you can move different lights around in the scene. As the video shows, Remedy really lets you use your imagination with the different colors and lighting props.

There will be an update for Elden Ring next week that sounds pretty important. The patch will come out on June 20, right before Shadow of the Erdtree goes live on June 21. “New features” and “balance adjustments” are what FromSoftware says the update will have.

Luckily, the developer went on to give more information. We went ahead and put them all together in the patch notes below:

New parts of inventory:

  • Items that were just gained will have a “!” next to them
  • There is now a new tab called “Recent Items” that lets you look at items that you just got

What’s new in Summoning Pool?

  • Now, active summoning pools will follow you to NG+
  • The newly added Map Functions Menu now lets you turn on and off individual summoning pools
  • When you use the Small Golden Effigy, it will only choose active Summoning Pools

All new hairstyles:

  • The game now has five more hairstyles to choose from. You can choose them when you make your character, with the Clouded Mirror Stand, or with Rennala’s Rebirth feature.
    FromSoftware also says that the patch will have extra features that aren’t listed here. I hope they’re a pleasant surprise!

Would you like to see any of these changes made? Are you still excited about Shadow of the Erdtree? Get ready by reading the comments below.
