Mojang and ZeniMax settle Scrolls trademark dispute

Update: (9:43 a.m.) ZeniMax comment added.

2011's slightly silly legal battle between Bethesda parent company ZeniMax and Minecraft developer Mojang over the name 'Scrolls' has drawn to a close with a settlement that sees both parties getting what they wanted -- sort of. The Swedish indie will be allowed to use that name for its digital collectible card game, but is handing the trademark over to ZeniMax.

Most Anticipated of 2012: Xav's Picks

There's a lot to be excited for in 2012, and the Shacknews staff each have five games on their radar. The editorial team at Shacknews outlines their most anticipated games of 2012 individually. Lastly, here's senior editor Xav de Matos and his list of 2012 titles.

Metro: Last Light

There's something about Metro 2033 that just spoke to me. It was dark and complex, it didn't pander to its audience, and it was equal parts incredible and insane--with variations of good and bad between both. Metro: Last Light looks to continue with these trends. Based on what I've seen, developer 4A Games looks to build upon the foundation of the first game to bring players an even more intense experience with Metro: Last Light.

Trailer for Minecraft dev's 'Scrolls' released

Mojang Specifications, the development company formed following the immense success of Minecraft on PC, has finally released the first trailer for its next title, Scrolls.

Of course, the game's title may change, as ZeniMax--holding company of publisher and developer Bethesda Softworks--is claiming the game's name infringes on the Elder Scrolls franchise trademark.

Whatever the game ends up being called, we do know something for certain, Mojang's next game has the extremely specific release date of "eventually."
