The Day Before may get a name change before its November release

The problematic Fntastic MMO is supposedly going by the name “Dayworld” when it launches. However, rumors claim that a book trilogy from the 1990s with the same name already exists.

The new name for The Day Before may get another trademark dispute coming.

According to WellPlayedfirst, the developer and publisher of “Dayworld” Mytona have submitted a joint trademark application. A New Zealand-based joint venture between the studio and publisher called Mytona Fntastic, which was purportedly just founded, registered for the trademark. The trademark has been registered under a variety of headings, including “downloadable game software; computer game software downloadable from a global computer network; and downloadable computer game software for use on mobile devices.”

Following the recent filing, there may be another trademark issue involving the planned MMO. American author Philip Jos Farmer wrote a series of books titled Dayworld between 1985 and 1990. The article says there isn’t proof of a trademark filing for the Dayworld books, but it doesn’t mean Mytona Fntastic won’t run into problems with Putnam Publishing Group, which is owned by the Penguin Group and is the publisher of the books.

Dayworld is also the name of a dystopian book trilogy written between 1985 and 1990.

Publisher Open Road Media is still selling the trilogy of dystopian books on several digital stores. A similar problem to the one with the survival horror game’s previous moniker may arise with the new trademark application. According to reports, the trademark has not yet been reviewed, thus Fntastic might be in for a nasty shock.

Prior to the studio’s unexpected revelation that it will be postponing The Day Before by nine months owing to a copyright strike, the game was set to launch in March. A Korean business that created a calendar app challenged The Day Before’s trademark. According to CEO of “The Day Before,” Lee Sun-jae, “We currently hold trademark rights in Korea, the United States, China, Russia, Japan, Vietnam, and the European Union.”

Even stranger things happened after that. After the copyright issue, Fntastic issued a statement explaining that it had always planned to postpone the distribution before the trademark conflict arose.In response to the copyright strike, Steam removed The Day Before’s game listing.

The Day Before still hasn’t returned to Steam after being taken down due to the trademark dispute.

Even though the game is supposed to be released in 2.5 months, The Day Before or Dayworld has still not made a comeback to Steam. Fntastic appears to have stopped talking about the next game on the radio. It makes sense that gamers are skeptical about the game’s arrival this year. Some people even wonder when the survival MMO will be published.

Release day for The Day Before was set for November 10, 2023.
