GTA, Red Dead Parent Company Files Trademark for "Ghost Story"

The trademark covers video games, movies, and clothing.


Take-Two Interactive, the company that owns Rockstar Games, 2K Games, and 2K Sports, has filed a new trademark application for something called "Ghost Story."

As discovered by GameRant, the trademark was filed on October 6 with the United States Patent & Trademark Office. Take-Two actually submitted five different trademark filings for Ghost Story, covering things like video games, movies, and even clothing.

The existence of a trademark filing does not necessarily mean much, if anything, about a future product or announcement. Take-Two also holds trademarks for "Judas" and "GTA TV" and nothing has ever come from those. Take-Two does not typically comment on trademark filings.

Whether Ghost Story is connected to any existing Take-Two video game series or a new IP--or something else entirely--remains to be seen. Take-Two recently set up a division called Double Take that is dedicated to making comic books and graphic novels. We'll bring you more details as they're made available.

Recently, Take-Two teased that Rockstar would announce a new game "soon," though it wouldn't launch until April 2017 at the soonest. Rockstar is also working on mysterious new IP.

In other news about potential upcoming Take-Two announcements, Rockstar Games is teasing something related to Red Dead Redemption, though whether it's a sequel, a remaster, a PC version, or something else is not yet known.
