Ubisoft has filed a new trademark with the European Union Intellectual Property Office for Beyond Good and Evil.
The trademark, first detailed by Dualshockers, has been filed under several different categories including game software, online components, clothing, and paper products.
The filing has once again re-ignited excitement for the Beyond Good and Evil sequel that was announced in 2008 but has been nowhere to be seen recently. Despite the long wait, Michel Ancel, creator of Beyond Good and Evil, insists that a sequel is still coming.
With E3 just a couple of months away, the filing could point towards an impending re-announcement or it could be an attempt by Ubisoft to re-secure ownership of the franchise. The news also follows last month’s rumor that Nintendo were funding a Beyond Good and Evil sequel that would release exclusively for the NX.
There is no news on when a Beyond Good and Evil sequel would be released, nor do we know whether one is still being developed. Maybe there will be more news at E3 in June.
