Sony seeking The Order: 1886 trademark

PlayStation maker's mark covers "video game software"; no comment from company.

'

Sony has filed a trademark application with the United States Patent & Trademark Office (USPTO) for The Order: 1886. The mark, applied for on April 18 and uncovered by NeoGAF, covers "Computer game software; Video game software."

A website--TheOrder1886.com--was registered privately last month. The page does not resolve to anything. No further information is available and a Sony representative was not immediately available to comment.

A number of developers are working on new franchises for the PlayStation 4, including God of War PSP developer Ready At Dawn, Capcom, and Guerrilla Games. These projects have not been announced.

Too many things happened in 1886 to be able to wager an accurate guess as to what this is possibly about.

Could be Guerrilla Games or maybe Naughty Dog. We known GG is finishing Shadow Fall and working on another PS4 game. ND has been working on their first PS4 game since 2011 and are starting their second now that Last of Us is pretty much finished.

Sony's hard at work on games while Xbox team is hard at work on smartwatch and more Pizza Hut-type apps...

Rather intriguing.  I too hope this is a new IP.  Can't wait to hear some more details - maybe at E3?

 Releasing a new console is arguably the best time to try some new IP.

@surferosh yeah, I mean. consoles were made so you can order your cancer, erm I mean fast food faster. OR, maybe, and see the genius in it, it's to avoid those dumb inbred gamers of dying for gaming 5 days straight without eating. At least now they can order their ''sausage in the crust pizza with extra bacon'' while on their 5th prestige as they are fragging kids.

@megaspiderweb09 @PuebloZuni He's probably a Native American, so he's tired of the Cowboys and Indians crap we've seen. For a long time Native Americans were portrayed as violent savages when they were ones being invaded and slaughtered in mass numbers (genocide). Fortunately, most modern Westerns don't portray Native Americans this way and have considerably more respect for them. He may not want a Western, but I do. I really like games like Red Dead Redemption, Gun and Outlaws  and I can't get enough of them.

@Monsta1217 @Sefrix Agreed. There are some decent series out there now, but we need more new games, new ideas, just new IPs. It should be fun to see what's coming in the gaming world.

@Monsta1217 And that's something worth getting excited about!

@Monsta1217 @Sefrix I hope this gen sees a ton of new IP's. I'm so tired of games going past 4. Don't get me wrong some deserve it but others are really milking it.

@Adavanter Agreed. I think a new gen could really help get the industry in a different mindset. We'll see.
