The Dutch website Gamer.nl has looked through the filed trademarks from Sony studios and they found out that Evolution Studios (of Motorstorm fame) have registered the trademark 'Drive Club'.

Source

They filed the trademark on February 13th 2012 through the website of United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO, serial number 85540921). Earlier there were already rumors of a new racegame from Evolution Studios so this fits in nicely.

The source is in Dutch so I've extracted all information I could extract from the news item.

Hopefully we'll hear more about this game at the Sony conference today!

Apologies if old or not thread-worthy.

UPDATE: Trademark taken offline. That was fast!

This could be that game that was going to wear the Gran Turismo branding before Polyphony said no.

And this could be the game that the Project Gotham Racing lead coder is working on.

Someone hold me, I'm shivering from the potential awesomeness.

If this game is 1/1000000000000000000000th as good as PGR, this might be a system seller for me.

Between this and the rumored PGRV, I may have a reason to keep gaming in the next generation...

I think they're split out across several devs now. Aren't some of them at Playground also?

No doubt.
Not sure about 'Drive Club' though, will it be the name of the game or a community aspect?

On second thought, it sounds like a feature and not a game, similar to that of Autolog.

EDIT: Anyone has a copy of the trademark?
