Double Fine: Iron Brigade “really close” to passing certification in Europe

Double Fine’s Brad Muir has said Iron Brigade’s European release is “close” to passing certification in Europe.

Muir, the game’s director, dropped the news in a statement to XBLAFans.

“I wish we could announce dates. We’re getting really close to having it clear certification through Microsoft and it’s kind of unfortunate because changing the name of a game you’ve already shipped in half the world is a lot harder than I thought it would be,” he said.

“There are so many different departments that it has to cruise through at Microsoft in order to enable the name change. It’s pretty ridiculous. They sent us the preliminary plan on how that [was] going to work and I didn’t even know there were that many divisions.”

It comes as the game, which has already released in the US, had to change its name from Trenched to Iron Brigade following a trademark dispute with the creator of a board game which carries the name Trench.

Iron Brigade was promised to have a September release, as announced at Microsoft’s Play Day at gamescom in August, but has since gone off the radar.
