I searched but found no prior thread or mention of this.

Also, on another note, the trademark dispute between Valhalla Game Studios and Valhalla Motion Pictures that TheBryanJZX90 wrote about last year here last year has reached an outcome:

Both of Valhalla Game Studios's marks, US serial numbers 77948333 and 77948895 have been abandoned (effective September 22, 2016) for the following reason:

Abandoned after an inter partes decision by the Trademark Trial and Appeal Board. For further information, see TTABVUE on the Trademark Trial and Appeal Board web page.

Expected the end of that to read "...for bankruptcy", so this was a positive surprise.
Devil's Third was largely a whiff, but I'd like to think Itagaki and friends are still capable of good things.

The multiplayer of Devil's Third has been recognized as something along those lines, so I'm thinking this could be building on the work they did there.

Fog of War better be the name of a Full Spectrum Warrior sequel, or...

Oh. Well, still interesting.

If this is a console game I hope they have better luck this time, devil's third was not that bad.
