Candy Crush Saga maker King has resolved its trademark disputes with the developers of The Banner Saga and CandySwipe, according to announcements on both of their websites.
“I am happy to announce that I have amicably resolved my dispute with King over my CandySwipe trademark and that I am withdrawing my opposition to their mark and they are withdrawing their counterclaim against mine,” Runsome Apps founder Albert Ransom wrote. “I have learned that they picked the Candy Crush name before I released my game and that they were never trying to take my game away. Both our games can continue to coexist without confusing players.”
Stoic, who accused King earlier this year for hindering development of its Banner Saga sequel by opposing The Banner Saga trademark, has also posted an update to its site announcing the companies have come to an agreement.
“Stoic is pleased to have come to an agreement with King regarding Stoic’s The Banner Saga trademark, which enables both parties to protect their respective trademarks now and in the future.”
