Koch Media Becomes PLAION

Koch Media announces it is now PLAION, a rebranding for the German publisher that will avoid any ongoing confusion with the Koch Brothers, Heckler & Koch, or Ed Koch. It seems like the capitalization is part of the new name, as it's shown that way consistently through the announcement. Here's word:
Our new name offers us the opportunity to build on our rich history as a publishing partner and our outstanding, constantly growing network of world-class development studios and creative people, to keep delivering premium service to our partners, to highlight our ambition as a global player within the entertainment industry but also to reinvent ourselves. Our vision is to enable and inspire our worldwide teams and partners, unlocking their full potential.

Our industry is incredibly dynamic, the expectations of our customers and our partners are continually evolving, and we must recognize this. Relying on our strong foundation whilst embracing change will deliver something new, something better. As PLAION, we're building on our years of success while striving for more, much more. PLAION is a promise to deliver outstanding entertainment to our customers. I'm happy and proud to continue our journey as PLAION."

Not really. The remaining Koch distanced himself from the Tea Party Movement, regrets what they did to the US only to save a few tax dollars.
I actually did read that too, but was under the impression he hadn't yet followed through on his supposed reversal. However, if he has good for him. If he has done a 180 he definitely deserves credit for it, not many are capable of that at his age.

Haha, yep. Came here to find out what the Koch brothers were up to...
Brother. Only one left.
Yeah, I knew that. But I'm pretty sure they have setup their company/trust/whatever such that it will continue to try to fuck up the US for decades to come, so they both still get the blame...

I see wut they did there: "play on."
Somehow I think the "AI" in the middle means something. Maybe "Play On + AI?"

And I don't blame them for not wanting to be associated with the Koch brothers. I always just assumed it was the same company.
