Although we have been talking about it for four years now, the trademark from Starfield will become official only from June 2022as the registration with official trademark recognition will only be complete from next month.
Not that it changes much at this point, but apparently so far there would have been the possibility, for any other company or private individual, to register the Starfield name with the typical circular logo for its own different space game, which would have triggered a very strange situation.
Starfield, the logo will be official from next month
Moreover, it would not be a new problem in the world of video games, as demonstrated by the case of Ubisoft forced to change the name of Gods & Monsters in Immortals: Fenyx Rising.
The Starfield trademark will therefore receive legal value, as a registered trademark, starting from June 14, 2022. The name Starfield has already been registered previously, but apparently this new evolution concerns not only the name but also the composition of the logo with the circular design and the font used, which will probably be fundamental as regards the merchandising linked to the game.
In the meantime, Starfield has been postponed to 2023, so it will not be able to come out on November 11, 2022, which has triggered a considerable series of controversies from fans (and not only). Either way, the game will most likely be shown at the Xbox & Bethesda Showcase on June 12.
