In a surprising, yet funny, turn of events, Bethesda accidentally did a copyright strike on Redfall’s official Twitter account, the day before the game came out.

User PMS Jordan uploaded a screenshot of Redfall’s official Twitter account, which showed a blocked banner photo. According to the text on the banner, the image was “removed in response to a report from the copyright holder.” As it turns out, Bethesda has been copyright-striking leaked footage of the game that has made its way to Twitter. While they have been successful in doing so, it had an unintended casualty: the game’s own Twitter account.
