Ubisoft Has Abandoned Their Watch Dogs Trademark
UPDATE: Ubisoft Montreal has reassured gamers that development of Watch_Dogs (with an underscore) is moving along. It’s possible that Ubi is readying a name change that includes the underscore at the US patent and trademark office.
ORIGINAL STORY: We know that Watch Dogs has seen an extensive release delay already, but this really comes out of left field. It seems Ubisoft holds six different US trademarks for Watch Dogs, some of them for game software, and others for merchandising purposes. According to the patent office, the publisher has filed an express abandonment for the primary application that holds precedence to game software and electronic programs.
You can see the entirety from the US patent office here. We’ve reached out to Ubisoft for further clarification. If this is true, the development of Watch Dogs could be in jeopardy.
