It means that the word mark has been dropped,so they cannot file a law suit against another comppany using that name/brand for a sofwatre (prefer. games).

The IP isnt touched at all.

The game IP mostly falls under copyright law, which thanks largely to lobbying from the mighty mouse, keeps having the timelines for copyright to fall into public domain extend into the future.

Esp. for software the so called "abandonware handling" becomes more important -> see WIKI "abandonware".

 

Short version:

Abandoned software will mostly lapse into the public domain.
