Hey @KombatLeager! Nice to meet you! Thanks for jumping in so quickly, but now I’ve got a follow-up for you:
Clipped from the article:
“On August 7, 2020, Zenimax Media successfully re-registered The Evil Within IP with the United States government for “continued use.” By itself, this doesn’t really mean anything, but trademarks are often renewed or updated shortly before new products under the trademark are announced. Of course, nothing has been officially announced or confirmed so be careful to curb your expectations for now.”
With that said, Microsoft HAS renewed trademarks before doing new stuff with them, such as Jet Force Gemini before Rare Reply, and Killer Instinct, with whatever they did with that crusty old game.
JET FORCE GEMINI Trademark of Microsoft Corporation Serial Number: 86661539 :: Trademarkia Trademarks
Does the term “continued use” mean anything special? Like, with Jet Force Gemini, its current status is REGISTERED, while the current status for Killer Instinct is CONTINUED USE AND INCONTESTIBILITY ACCEPTED.
What is the difference? From what it reads, it sounds like Killer Instinct is more likely to be used sooner, right?
