Unfortunately, yes it does.

But the reason why fans started using the monikers RQ2 and RQ3 was because
the game's name *didn't* explicitly change with each version. What with the
RQ4 confusion (is it a legitimate published game or not?) and the fact the
Mongoose release was branded MRQ by the fanbase, they probably feel
legitimate in calling it 'RuneQuest 2' since they own the name rights and
it'll end up being referred to as MRQ2 anyway.

None taken.  Naming is a management decision, not the authors. :)

I just hope it'll be given fair consideration, despite this issue.
