Microsoft “working to resolve” Trenched European release, says Double Fine

Thursday, 14th July 2011 09:58 GMT By Johnny Cullen

Double Fine producer Brad Muir has said that Microsoft is currently “working to resolve” the currently in-limbo European release of Trenched.

It follows claims that the designer of board game Trench, Rui Alípio Monteiro – who has also registered the name as a trademark – was set to turn it into a game.

“This entire process has been very frustrating to us and it makes us sad that the people of Europe can’t play our game. Microsoft owns the IP for TRENCHED and they are working to resolve things as quickly as possible,” Muir told Destructoid.

“I wish there were more information to give but it’s still unclear as to how things will shake out. The one thing I do know is that the game will be released in those territories! It might take a while, but Europeans will have the opportunity to stick it to Vlad and his Tubes.

‘We would recommend playing through Castle Crashers for the 17th time while you wait, because that game rules and Dan Paladin is a national treasure.”

Trenched is out now in the US on Xbox Live Arcade.

    Maybe next time they could check title registration in Europe as well rather than just US?
