I’m as tired of hearing about Candy Crush Saga developer King’s trademarking of the word “Candy” as the rest of you, but this is the update many of us have been awaiting: King has filed for express abandonment of the over-reaching trademark in the United States.

King confirmed the filing with Kotaku but didn’t comment on the matter beyond that.

For all of the negative publicity the trademark generated, I wasn’t so sure King would ever back down. Something tells me the company won’t be abandoning its “Saga” trademark.
