“Grisly” video game Hatred included Epic Games’ Unreal Engine 4 logo in a video trailer when the game was announced this week and the Cary-based company quickly told Destructive Commons to remove it.

The game maker complied, reports gaming website Polygon.

“Epic Games isn’t involved in this project,” Epic told Polygon in a statement. “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.”

Not that Epic hasn’t produced violent games of its own in the past. Remember “Bulletstorm”? Its classic “Unreal Tournament” and “Gears of War” franchise (now owned by Microsoft) weren’t for the faint of heart, either.

But Polygon described the game as “grisly,” adding it’s a “graphically violent massacre-style shooter.”

Hatred “depicts the playable character slaughtering innocents civilians and law enforcement in an effort to rack up a high body count and ‘spread Armageddon upon society,'” Polygon adds.

Unreal Engine 4 was used to create it.

Destructive Creations later told Polygon the Unreal logo was removed.
