Night Dive Studios Files ‘No One Lives Forever’ Trademark

By   /   May 2, 2014

Last year Activison revealed that they or developer Monolith no longer held the rights to No One Lives Forever franchise. However, a few questions remained unanswered, like the identity of the company who acquired the rights or whether they will be republishing the games or not.

It turns out that Night Dive Studios, the same company responsible for republishing PC classics like System Shock 2, I Must Scream and many others on digital distribution acquired those rights.

The company filed trademarks for No One Lives Forever, The Operative, Contract J.A.C.K and A Spy in H.A.R.M’s Way. These are all games of the NOLF franchise.

Whether the company plans to rerelease the games on Steam or GOG has still not been disclosed but according to the statement of Stephan Kick:

At this time we are unable to comment on future plans. I would like to add that our team has a great fondness for these games and our hope is that they will one day be re-released.

For clarity’s sake, the company has acquired trademarks for the franchise. This does not however, means that they have the copyrights to the source material although it doesn’t make sense that they would be able to file for trademarks without the copyrights.
