Epic Games Asks Unreal Engine 4 Logo Removed from Hatred’s Mass Murder-Driven Trailer

on October 16, 2014 3:09 PM

Today Polish developer Destructive Creations launched the first trailer of its upcoming PC game “Hatred,” causing extremely negative reactions from many, since it basically depicts one minute and a half of mass murder.

The trailer also includes the Unreal Engine 4 logo, since the engine is being used to create the game. Apparently Epic Games doesn’t really want to be associated with the themes depicted, and they’re requesting the logo to be pulled, as we mentioned in a statement we just received.

Epic Games isn’t involved in this project. Unreal Engine 4 is available to the general public for use “for any lawful purpose,” and we explicitly don’t exert any sort of creative control or censorship over projects. However, the video is using the trademarked Unreal Engine 4 logo without permission from Epic, and we’ve asked for the removal of our logo from all marketing associated with this product.

You can see the trailer below, but be warned: it’s most definitely not safe for work, and not in the spicy way.
