trademarks


A pair of Sony Computer Entertainment Amercia's trademarks in the US -- Kill Strain and Entwined -- have been spotted. Perhaps one or both of them will be announced at E3 in June. Kill Strain is no "Screamride," to be sure, b...


Microsoft trademarked a game called "Eden Falls" for use in the United States. The trademark was filed on April 16 as game software, says Gematsu.  To me, Eden Falls sounds like a wanna-be JRPG with a whole bunch of west...


Oh hey good news! King stopped being idiots and settled the trademark disputes they had over the word "saga" and "candy" with a couple of small studios. Stoic Studios, developers of The Banner Saga, released a statement last ...


on April 9, Microsoft filed a trademark application for a game called "Screamride" with the USPTO. All we know so far is that this will be an "online computer game."  It sounds like a roller coaster thing to me. Just gue...


Could a new Fallout game or property be in the works? Recently, ZeniMax Media, parent company of Bethesda Softworks, quietly filed three separate trademarks for "Nuka Cola." Delicious and informative, yes? Nuka Cola is a favo...


The folks behind Human Revolution are working on a new Deus Ex for current-generation consoles and PC. Could its title be Deus Ex: Mankind Divided? Square Enix trademarked the phrase in the United Kingdom, reports CVG. It sur...


I'm as tired of hearing about Candy Crush Saga developer King's trademarking of the word "Candy" as the rest of you, but this is the update many of us have been awaiting: King has filed for express abandonment of the over-rea...


CandySwipe, a match-three mobile game based around confectioneries, looks a lot like Candy Crush Saga. The premise, assets, and name are all wildly similar. That's not much of a surprise though; the mobile market is full of s...


This week, the Internet discovered that one of Ubisoft's trademarks for Watch Dogs -- specifically, the one concerned with game software -- had been abandoned. This led to plenty of speculation, ranging from a possible cancel...


"At its simplest, our policy is to protect our IP and to also respect the IP of others," King wrote in an open letter about intellectual property that serves as the company's response to criticism it has faced for trademarkin...


Candy Crush Saga developer King is playing hardball. Early this week we learned King successfully trademarked the word "Candy" in the US as it pertains to videogames (and clothing!). It already owns the "Candy" trademark in E...


Just the other day we heard that King, developer of the why-are-all-of-my-friends-playing-this behemoth Candy Crush Saga, successfully trademarked the word "candy" as it relates to games. In an effort to fight trademark trol...


The sharp eyes of Siliconera found Japanese trademarks for The Seeds of Salvation and Luminaries of the Legendary Line last year. And now they've found a trademark for The Seeds of Salvation filed in the United...


Candy Crush developer King has trademarked the word "Candy." Snicker all you want, it happened. King filed the trademark for "Candy" as it relates to games (and clothing!) almost a year ago and, as Gamezebo has found, the tra...


After Disney shut down LucasArts, I thought I had completely given up all hope for Star Wars 1313 ever getting made. I have. But that's not to say the project can't affect me from beyond the grave. There was that story about ...


Back in May when Microsoft first announced the Xbox One, it also promised to bring a fair number of exclusives and new IPs to the platform. While there's some stuff currently available and more in the pipeline, a title just p...


I don't think anyone ever doubted that Capcom's online PS4 RPG Deep Down would be coming to the west. You didn't, did you?  It was never officially announced, but they showed it at the PS4's US debut, showed it to wester...


In 1992, Electronic Arts released Desert Strike: Return to the Gulf -- a shoot 'em up that had the player control an Apache helicopter. The game was a commercial success and is fondly remembered by many. As game publishe...


All Games Beta shared a trademark application filed by Rockstar for Bully Bullworth Academy: Canis Canem Edit, which is most likely going to be a Bully game. This could be just a re-release of the classic PlayStation 2 game, ...


It's been quite some time since a new Dragon Quest game has graced these shores, but if recent trademark sightings indicate anything, our fortunes might just be turning for the better in the near future.  Uncovered over ...


Hot off the discovery of the website, thesurvivor2299, comes further proof that the fourth installment of Bethesda's Fallout series might be right around the corner. Surfacing on the Office for Harmonization in the Inter...


A trademark for a new Transformers game, Transformers: Age Of Extinction, was spotted last week by Seibertron. Don't get too excited since it's almost certainly going to be a movie tie-in game for Michael Bay's next robo...


Just over a week ago, news surfaced that the creepy as all hell motion-captured Pikachu demo would be part of a possible new project Game Freak was working on that featured the yellow mouse as the player's partner in a game w...


Over on the MMO Champion forums, the Administrator Boubouille made a post showing that Blizzard have trademarked "Warlords of Draenor" in New Zealand, and it seems possible that this could be the name of the next expansion fo...


Aliens: Colonial Marines didn't go well, did it? If at first you don't succeed... A trademark was filed by Twentieth Century Fox for a game (or something game-related, at least) called Alien: Isolation. Not Aliens, but Alien....


[Update: The trademark in question was removed from the OHIM website and is believed to have been a hoax, reports Valve Time. So goes the Half-Life 3 hysteria. For what it's worth, the game is seemingly in development, if Val...


I'm not sure what it is about modern Deus Ex titles and our finding out about them by scouring the internet for trademark listings, but here's yet another. Siliconera has discovered a few of interest from publisher Square Eni...


Rockstar North's big PlayStation 3 exclusive, Agent, hasn't been talked about by the developer in far too long. A real shame considering the game's setup, which involves Cold War espionage in the late 1970s. C'mon! We need th...


I had given up on the prospect of Seaman ever gracing 3DS with its particular brand of weirdness, but perhaps I'm just too quick to give up hope. Siliconera has discovered trademarks that may tie into previous rumblings about...


A Microsoft trademark for "Forzavista" was recently spotted by Siliconera. According to the United States Patent and Trademark Office listing, this is for "A feature of interactive video game software which allows players to ...


This must be punishment for every unpleasant word ever uttered in response to Shaquille O'Neal's off-court ventures -- his rap career, his starring roles in Kazaam and Steel, the mind-numbing Shaq Fu. I can only imagine that ...


With the three Guild02 games already out in Japan and the first in the set, Starship Damrey, scheduled for release in the States on May 16, it's time to look towards he future. It's never too soon to start thinking "sequel"! ...


Warner Bros. and 5th Cell are being slapped with a lawsuit (story via NeoGAF) over the inclusion of a pair of Internet memes in Scribblenauts Unlimited. Both the infamous Keyboard Cat and Nyan Cat can be summoned into th...


A new US trademark for "The Order: 1886" has been filed by Sony, and the application shows that this name is for use with videogames. So we know a new game is coming. Good. But we may have some clues as to where this game is ...


As with any other new trademarked name that pops up, we have no idea what this new one from Square Enix is about. The name that we found on NeoGAF, "The Mad & The Monsterous," sounds pretty cool, but it really could go an...


I know you can't see me, but I just threw up jazz hands and sassed out "Glacier Blast" while sitting alone in my office. I regret doing so. I hope no one was watching. What is Glacier Blast? Your guess is as good as mine, tho...


A new Japanese trademark from Square Enix nails down the name "Fantasy Life." My mind immediately jumped to a game where you'd dive into piles of fluffy, squirmy corgi puppies, but it's probably something more along...


We've had a flurry of activity about recent trademarks concerning the Deus Ex franchise which turned out to be the movie and a re-classified Australian version of 2011's Deus Ex Human Revolution. Now, a sharp eyed tweet has p...


When word got out about Square Enix trademarking Deus Ex: Human Defiance, some of us got a bit carried away. The name, in our defense, did seem like a rather fitting title for a potential follow-up to 2011's Human Revolution....


Spyro, Ratchet & Clank, and Resistance developer Insomniac Games has trademarked a videogame called Sunset Overdrive. According to the filing, this is for "Entertainment services, namely, providing an on-line computer gam...
