Another day, another gaming trademark filed.

This time, it’s EA and the trademarks filed are for something called Darkspore.

Three filings popped up on the USPTO  website, for “online computer games”, “hand held units for playing video games”, and “downloadable computer game software via a global computer network and wireless devices”, which, per usual, also cover toys, film, and general merchandise pertaining to the property.

The filings were outed by Superannuation (via GameSetWatch), and it’s being speculated that it pertains to the Spore title announced for consoles and PC during EA’s financial results back in February.

Dark Spore


  • Darkspore will be unplayable from March 1

    Darkspore will go, uh, dark next week.

  • Darkspore reinstated on Steam

    Darkspore is once more available on Steam. The action RPG returned to Valve’s digital distribution service overnight. EA has not explained its temporary absence, which added fuel to speculation that support for the game had ended. EA has pish-poshed such talk, noting that Maxis recently corrected a nasty error.
