Why does Polygon have the same name as the gaming blog it used to be?

I mean, that name has been around for a long time, right?

I’m pretty sure we’re going to get a new name, Polygon, after all.

I’m also pretty sure Polygon has been going by the same old name since its inception in 2009. 

And it does, at least for now.

But the news came as a bit of a surprise. 

When I asked a member of Polygon’s staff about it, he told me he didn’t know why it had been changed. 

“We’re still using Polygon as our name,” he said.

“I can’t tell you what it’s going to be, but I can tell you that it’s not going to change.”

That said, I reached out to the publisher to get their side of the story, and they confirmed to me that they are indeed using the name Polygon now. 

In a tweet that was published on Tuesday, the publisher said that Polygon would “change our name from Polygon to Polygon Games.” 

“Our team and our fans have been asking for this change for years and we’re committed to staying true to our core mission,” they wrote.
