Desert Strike trademarks pop up

Tuesday, 3rd December 2013 02:32 GMT By Brenna Hillier

EA has filed two trademarks for Desert Strike, which you may recall as a 16-bit era isometric action strategy hybrid which spawned a series of five games ending with 1997 N64, PC and PSOne release Nuclear Strike. There’s been no indication the publisher intends to resurrect the beloved property, unfortunately, so don’t get too excited over what may be a sensible defensive filing, even if EA hasn’t forgotten its back catalogue.

Thanks, PlayerAttack.

    God, my brother used to love playing these back in the day.
    Shame they’re not doing anything with this, it could’ve made for an amazing XBLA/PSN title.

    I freaking LOVED that series (Desert, Jungle and Urban).

    Sadly this is EA we’re talking about. They will either go for co-op military shooter / FPS or just a free-to-play casual title filled with micro-transactions.

    omg!!! played this game soooooooooooo much back in my childhood.. me and my brothers all went throught it. DESERT/Jungle/ and city.. never played the last 2 ones though.

    but a new strike game could be fun if it’s true to it’s roots.. and not like this
