Molyneux must rename Curiosity app ‘because of NASA’

Thursday, 23rd August 2012 15:02 GMT By Dave Cook

Curiosity, the debut title from Peter Molyneux’s new studio 22 Cans must change its name following a conflict with the NASA Mars rover Curiosity, the developer has revealed.

Molyneux’s new project was due to launch yesterday, but was delayed for reasons unknown.

The developer took to Twitter today and explained the delay, “There is a problem. We can’t use it because of NASA.”

Curiosity also got a new trailer yesterday. Check it out here:

Thanks CVG.

    NASA > Moledeux or Moleneux
    Anyone who doesn’t think so is a hypocrite . Period.

    Not sure you have the right definition of hypocrite there.

    Well I don’t think Curiosity should be a copyrighted name in whatever way as it is a normal word.

    Reminds me of the whole scrolls and elder scrolls issue between mojang and bethesda.

    just ridicilous.

    It’s probably not a legal issue. More about avoiding confusion while trying to build anticipation for the ‘game’

    Better re-check as your post makes no sense.
