Microsoft files new Phantom Dust trademark… again

Maybe 2016 is the year it happens?

If you thought Phantom Dust was dead, think again – Microsoft has, once again, filed a new trademark application.

The filing – which was spotted by those cool cats at DualShockers – was made on January 13, 2016 and is listed as game software.

Phantom Dust was originally envisioned by both Microsoft and developer Darkside as something designed to simultaneously capture the Hearthstone and League of Legends audiences. It was announced by Microsoft at its E3 conference in 2014, but less than a year later the project was shelved by the developer due to “unfair demands” by Microsoft.
