Electronic Arts has submitted two new trademark applications for Desert Strike with the United States Patent and Trademark Office, hinting that a remake of the popular 1992 shoot ‘em up video game is in the works.

On November 25, 2013, the video game company filed the trademarks (US Serial Numbers: 86128233 and 86128236) for Desert Strike.

Desert Strike was originally released in February 1992 and involved the player piloting an AH-64 Apache helicopter. A remake of Desert Strike may come as no surprise. The game sold well and for its time, it was Electronic Arts’ highest ever selling game.

Hard to get hyped for this when I know EA is going to fuck it up somehow (mobile, f2p, 4 player FPS, etc.).

Just imagine the GAF backlash if that was the case? Aw man... That would be hilarious!!!!

Here's an iOS game based off the desert/jungle strike series.

I really loved it on the amiga, but i'm not interested in a new game because i don't expect it being interesting or good either being faithful to the original formula or even worse something different from the original.

I hope they don't ruin it, I love the Strike games. I'm currently playing them in glorious RGB on a 29 inch Sony PVM.

they'll ruin it. Would be hilarious to see it as another modern fps though.
