Insomniac trademarks "Bad Dinos"

New trademark from Ratchet & Clank, Resistance developer covers "online video games."

The next game from Ratchet & Clank and Resistance developer Insomniac Games may involve "Bad Dinos."

The Burbank, California-based developer filed a trademark application with the United States Patent & Trademark Office (USPTO) on July 29 for "Bad Dinos."

The application covers "Entertainment services, namely, providing online video games."

No other information is available and a representative for Insomniac Games could not be reached for comment.

Insomniac Games is currently developing Ratchet & Clank: Into the Nexus for the PlayStation 3, as well as Sunset Overdrive for Xbox One. In addition to an office in Burbank, the company has a division based in Durham, North Carolina.

How far they've fallen since the PS1 Spyro games.. Bad Dinos sounds like a childrens game, which is Insomniac's strong suit - or it could be a mobile game, which would be an unsurprising move considering their recent fortunes. Either way, Spyro.

I'd really like it if Insomniac makes another platformer series, but I won't get my hopes up

I'm intrigued about the idea of a well man dinosaur game, but not entirely sold on the name 'Bad Dinos'.  Sounds awfully generic.

Stop making "Bad Dinos" games and make us a new Dino Crisis game.

It'll be a story driven game like Heavy Rain. Like Land Before Time, but with depression and serious Tree Star abuse.

Ratchet was good, so does Resistance but Fuse looks bad

Hope this turns up good

The name "Bad Dinos" reminds me of a Pixar movie or something. 

Let's see...

I like dinos. I especially like BAD dinos and I like Ratchet and Clank...what could go wrong?

This already exists.  It's called Dinosaurs for Hire on the Sega Genesis.

Hopefully it's their new PS4 exclusive that replaces Resistance. I don't want them to do a new multiplat game after FUSE.

Hmmm maybe it will be an open world game where we are dinosaurs and try to destroy everything but this will have great graphics vs other games kind of like this in the past that were just 2D games and uh yeah old and uh were not open world.

@Cl0ud @supermoc10 force? where did u get ur retarded information from? if i can remember well microsoft was the one forcing bungie to make a dozen halo series, and if any console that is shitty am sure it will be the xbox one because that thing is against what gaming really stands for

@Cl0ud @supermoc10 I wouldn't say "force".  Insomniac has always been a completely independent developer.  They have a really good relationship with Sony and its platform, hence their favoritism towards releasing Playstation games.

@Cl0ud @supermoc10 lol they irony, xbots speaking about a publisher forcing the devs to do only on franchise.
Bungie had to buy themself back so they can leave MS and immediately forming a partnership with Sony.

@Cl0ud @supermoc10 ps3 was a better console then the Xbox 360 by far and guarantee the ps4 will be better then the Xbox one

@Cl0ud @supermoc10 Yeah, Sony forces them to have great franchises that make both of them a lot of money. Franchises that are loved by their fans. Yeah, Bad Sony for making them make money for both Sony and Insomniac. Bad Sony for letting Insomniac stay as a completely independently owned studio.
