The Day Before postponed again

Having captivated naive gamers like us for the past two years, The Day Before continues to amaze us with displays both reminiscent of The Last of Us and The Division mixed together. It was originally supposed to be released in the summer of last year, but due to the alleged transition from Unreal Engine 4 to Unreal Engine 5, the once Russian and now Singaporean developer Fntastic postponed it until this year.
There was a new excuse that came out today, just over a month before the new release date was announced. A few days ago, it was reported that someone started a request to register the name as a trademark after the announcement of The Day Before in 2021.
Apparently, the developers were not aware that someone had started the request until Steam removed it from their store a few days ago. In order to release The Day Before on 10/11 this year, they had to make a tough decision since they could not use someone else's trademark.
As a result, this was a very difficult decision.

It's good to see that at least we'll see a full gameplay demo, which will prove that The Day Before is real, which we were promised by the end of this month.
Of course we won't. "We had planned to publish a long gameplay video by the end of this month, but now we have to solve this first", the game's developers found an excuse to avoid a concrete presentation of the game that few are now convinced actually exists, at least in the form that was presented earlier.
In case The Day Before is really a scam, then it stands to reason that Nvidia, who is a marketing partner of Fntastic, has also been duped into believing that The Day Before is a scam. The Day Before is used by Nvidia as an example of how they advertise their ray-tracing technology on the latest graphics cards.
A few weeks ago, this survival MMO was looking stunning with RT reflections for the first time in its history.
