Bethesda trademarks “Brink” with USPTO
Bethesda’s parent company, ZeniMax, has filed an application with the United States Patent and Trademark Office for new project called Brink.
According to a report from Gamespot, not much is really known other than that, but when an application like this is filed, it falls under the realm of:
“Computer game software for use with personal computers and home video game consoles; downloadable computer game software offered via the internet and wireless devices; entertainment services, namely, providing on-line interactive computer games and providing information relating to electronic computer games via the internet.”
Currently, Bethesda and ZeniMax are working on an MMO with $300 million to put towards it and other development projects secured in 2007. This includes a development deal with Splash Damage which just got new staff additions by way of Fable II designer Paul Ham and Killzone 2 level designer Neil Alphonso.
Hopefully E3 will shed more light on this, but in the meantime Bethesda has yet to respond to Gamespot’s request for comment.
