Activision Abandons COD: Space Warfare Trademark

Activision has let several game trademarks expire, according to GameSpot. Activision has let trademarks for "Call of Duty: Space Warfare" and "Call of Duty: Secret Warfare" expire. Activision filed the trademark application with the United States Patent & Trademark Office (USPTO) in May 2010, but no game was ever announced.

Activision still holds trademarks for "Call of Duty: Future Warfare" and "Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare," though the company has not announced any such Call of Duty games to-date. Likely it does this from time to time to lock down names that it is strongly considering for use in the future.

The next entry in the series, Call of Duty: Ghosts, releases November 5 on PC and consoles…

    @MaskedPixelante, I think there is some evidence that COD is heading in a new direction. Future Warfare is a real possibility:

    I think if you're willing to believe what has been seen, Activision is still going futuristic with COD for a 3rd part of the series. Black Ops, Modern Warfare and possibly Future Warfare or Advanced Warfare. I still keep some hope for innovation because after Ghosts, something interesting needs to be next for the franchise.

    Becuase, yeah, let's not take the series in a new, interesting direction. Let's just put in playable dogs and women, that's enough innovation for a generation.
