Just got a letter from Bethesta's lawyers. They claim "Scrolls" infringes on their trademark and everyone will confuse it with Skyrim.
That is referring to Scrolls, the new game in the works from Notch's company Mojang Specifications - it's a strategy, fantasy title reminiscent of collectible card games, and it was announced back in March 2011, after being in the planning stages for at least five years.
The other game is, of course, The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, an inevitable monster-RPG blockbuster, currently being developed at Bethesda Softworks. It was officially announced in December 2010, after being conceptualised "shortly after the release of Oblivion" in 2006.
I still <3 Bethesda. This is hopefully just lawyers being lawyers.

I like video games and music and cups of tea and noodles and beagles and colour-cycling LEDs.
