King, the studio which is well-known for its work on the games like Candy Crush Saga, Pet Rescue Saga and Bubble Witch Saga, stopped Stoic Games from trademarking The Banner Saga officially because it included the word ‘Saga’.
The game in question had no relationship with the King’s titles whatsoever, but still the people at King thought that they would try and force Stoic into changing the name for their franchise.
However, as expected not much attention was given to King’s challenge because of its extreme vagueness, and today, via twitter Stoic has revealed that they have successfully trademarked their game:

The team at Stoic was extremely agitated when they found out that King is trying to stop them from trademarking their game:
We won’t make a Viking saga without the word Saga, and we don’t appreciate anyone telling us we can’t.
The King Studio responded to this statement by saying that they don’t want their Saga word to be used by other brands, just because they are trying to protect their IPs.
Thankfully, the issue has now come to an end and Stoic Games has managed to trademark the game, which is good news considering a new game in The Banner Saga series is under development.
