You can probably guess that many talented developers will fight against this attack.

They will obviously defect from Bitcoin to run Old-Crappy-No2x-BlockstreamCore-Obstructionist-Not-Bitcoin in just the same way if it is also in their economic interest.

Given that 90%+ of miners are currently signaling support for it, and given that most of the large Bitcoin companies have done similarly, there is a strong argument the SegWit2x chain will just be known as Bitcoin, and the legacy chain will earn some other name, like Bitcoin Classic or similar.
