The Day Before for PC postponed to November 10

Publisher MyTona and developer Fntastic have delayed PC version open world survival massively multiplayer online game The day before from the previously planned release date of March 1 to November 10, citing a trademark dispute as the reason.

“Right before release, Steam blocked our game page at the request of a private individual due to the name ‘The day before,” the companies said in a joint statement. “As you know, our game was announced in January 2021. At the time of the announcement,The day before‘ game trademark was available. Following the announcement of the game, the above person filled out an application before us to register the game’s trademark ‘The day before‘ in USA.”

According to the companies, while a lengthy gameplay video was planned for release later this month, they will first have to resolve this trademark issue. In a separate tweet, Fntastic said“For the gameplay video, we will first consult with lawyers and then we can publish it.”

The day before is also slated for release on PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series at a later date.

Dear fans!

Right before the release, Steam blocked our game page at the request of a private person because of the name “The day before.”

As you know, our game was announced in January 2021. At the time of the announcement, “The day before” game trademark was available.

After the announcement of the game, the above person filled out an application before us to register the trademark of the game “The day before” in the US: https://uspto.report/TM/79314174

What’s next?

Previously, we were not aware that there were requirements. We only found out on January 19, 2023 when we received a complaint from him and a request to contact him.

Now we find out all the circumstances surrounding the incident and we will definitely solve everything.

We had previously planned to post a long gameplay video later this month, but we’ll need to fix this issue first. We will send a video as soon as possible.

As a result, we have made the difficult decision to delay the launch until November 10th, 2023. We understand that this may disappoint many of our fans, but we want to ensure that we release the best game possible.

Our 100 percent focus remains on the game itself and how we can deliver the best game possible.

Thank you and we hope for your support.

Yours sincerely
MyTona and Fntastic
