Activision abandons Call of Duty: Space Warfare

Publisher's trademark for unannounced game expires, along with trademark for Call of Duty: Secret Warfare.

Activision has abandoned its trademark for Call of Duty: Space Warfare.

The publisher originally filed the trademark application with the United States Patent & Trademark Office (USPTO) in May 2010, but no game was ever announced.

Activision dropped its trademark for Call of Duty: Secret Warfare during summer 2011

The publisher continues to hold trademarks for Call of Duty: Future Warfare and Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare, though no products attached to those names have been announced.

An Activision representative was not immediately available to comment.

The next entry in the series is this fall's Call of Duty: Ghosts, which will be available for current- and next-generations consoles, as well as PC.

I think a Space warfare type game would be really good. I really enjoyed Warhammer 40,000 Space Marine and the online is pretty good except the small annoyance that hardly anyone plays it.

I've just watched some Battlefield 4 gameplay footage and that totally blows Call of Duty out of the water. It will be a travesty for the generic FPS format if Battlefield 4 is outsold by Ghosts.

I hope they don't abandon the action-adventure idea. That actually sounds pretty interesting. A nice change. Something Bourne Conspiracy-style would be great. I always wanted to play another game like that one.

Because Activision bought Bungie, and now they have Destiny.

Right, my little friends?

Clearly space warfare was far too ambitious for Activision. They have a reputation of being stagnant to keep.

@SexyJazzCat would've been fun in space, but if the jazz cat sexy buys ghosts, there will be hell to pay :)

cod space warfare lol, what a terrible idea that was and what a terrible game it would have been. same old unrealistic gameplay and unrealistic shooting mechanics combined with people low grav flying all over the place, that sounds like pure frustration if you ask me. oh and whoever buys cod ghosts next gen is an idiot, battlefield 4 clearly is 10 times better.

@Aaronp2k i really don't understand what your problem is with cod and/or poeple who buy cod. will battlefield 4 have splitscreen multiplayer? i don't think so. not every gamer is sitting home alone in front of a pc. some people enjoy to play their games with their friends sitting next to each other (without having a lan party). cod is (to me) like mario kart. you can just pick up a controller and just play - even the lesser skilled gamers. its easy and its fun. and why do you feel the need to defend bf4 like its some family member of yours. you enjoy battlefield? thats cool - i am happy for you. you prefer bf over cod? thats cool, too. but why are people idiots for not agreeing with you? "blahblahblah battlefield 4 clearly is 10 times better"...so what?
