Ubisoft ditching Watch Dogs trademark in the US

Posted on February 3, 2014 by (@NE_Brian) in News, Wii U

As of late, there’s been a lot of talk about the status of Watch Dogs on Wii U, with the game possibly facing cancellation on Nintendo’s console. The game’s issues may actually extend into more general territory, however.

One member on NeoGAF detected that Ubisoft has filed an express abandonment for Watch Dogs’ primary US trademark application, serial number 85642398, which is associated with the following:

Game software and electronic game programs, namely, software games recorded on CD-ROM and digital video discs for computers; software games recorded on CD-ROMs, digital video discs, and cartridges for console and individual, portable gaming systems; software games that are downloadable from a remote computer site and electronic game software for mobile phones, personal digital assistants, and handheld computers

I honestly don’t think that Ubisoft could be cancelling Watch Dogs at this point, but you never know. A name change would certainly make more sense. Isn’t it about time for Ubisoft to begin giving some clear cut answers as to what’s going on with the game?
