ZeniMax and Prey?

Since 3D Realms let their internal development team go, there have been a number of news stories about the company and its subsequent actions. We all know about the ongoing lawsuit between 3D Realms and Take Two concerning Duke Nukem Forever and Duke Begins. Scott Miller has also mentioned that there are a number of iPhone games coming out, including the just released port of Duke Nukem 3D.

However that is not all that has been going on with 3D Realms in the last few months, it has come to our attention that the Prey trademark that was held by 3D Realms has now shifted hands twice. On June 22nd, 3D Realms assigned its interest in the trademark to Radar Group. However perhaps more interestingly less than a month later, on July 21st, Radar Group assigned its interests in the trademark to ZeniMax Media.

The company that has been in the news alot lately as the publisher of Splash Damage’s Brink and for acquiring famous development studio id Software. The reasons for these dealings in the Prey trademark and what effect if any they will have on Prey 2 or the Eastern European publishing deal already in place for it is unknown. When we know more we will let you know.
