“After careful consideration. We’ve decided to rename our first person shooter Ion Maiden to Ion Fury, said Mike Nielsen, CEO of 3D Realms. “A lot of thought went into this. But most importantly it would be a disservice to our loyal fanbase. And the fantastic developers, to drag out a long lawsuit. The amazing gameplay, interactivity and pure fun. This is what makes Ion Fury a great game. Not the title.”
