Today, on January 26, 2015, Sony Computer Entertainment Europe Limited filed in Europe a trademark application for "Resistance". It is a basic Community trade mark (CTM) filing for Computer game software, Toys, games and playthings and Electronic games services provided by means of the Internet. The filing entered the database of the Office for Harmonization in the Internal Market (OHIM) today, and reads as follows:

The original trademark for "Resistance:Fall of Man" was registered in Europe on October 9, 2007, and will expire on March 8 next year. That filing has seen no changes as far as I can tell.

For U.S. serial number trademark 78819976, "Resistance Fall of Man", a Combined Declaration of Use and Incontestability under Sections 8 & 15 was filed in July last year. U.S. serial number trademark 77645307, Resistance, has not seen any events since 2010. No new filings of "Resistance" has been made public by the USPTO at time of writing.

Whether this is for something entirely new or for protection only I don't know, to be noted is that Resistance: Burning Skies for PS Vita was released in 2012. For this filing to be connected specifically to that seems a bit strange however, and that they waited for so long to submit an application doesn't make much sense.

There you have it anyway. I don't have access to full information at the moment, but will update this post in a few hours should anything interesting emerge.

Searched but found no earlier posts.

I would love for this franchise to be rebooted. But I feel this is nothing more than a trademark renewal meaning there's nothing planned for now (they still see value in it)

A Master Chief Collection-like operation with the whole saga, the PSP chapter, coop from 2 and multi with a mix of maps and modes from all chapters* would please me greatly.

Also, while I really loved the first one only and don't really like the road they went down with sequels (story and atmosphere wise mostly), fuck "let it die" comments. Weapon wheel shooters FTW.

But I would welcome a reboot.

I may be the only person in the world that decided to go with the PS3 because of Resistance Fall of Men specifically (and a bit of MGS 4).

Such an underutilized and mishandled universe, where the hell is Retribution 2 and that story arc?

And why close the door for a direct sequel after R3 for a shitty 3 minute radio audition and a couple of post cards? Who the fuck greenlit this? Arghhh I'm pissed again.

I've mixed feelings of the Resistance series overall, but I'd gladly see another if Sony puts a good developer on it. Probably a reboot is in order by now however. And personally I never really cared for the WWII-era setting, and I wouldn't mind if they moved it around a bit to a different era.

Eh, probably just plugging some legal holes, just like Nintendo registering "Virtual Boy" and "Polarium" trademarks few months ago.

Resistance 1 had some of my favorite MP last gen, and Resistance 3 had one of the best campaigns. I'd like to see more from this franchise, but I struggle to believe this is anything but trademark protection.

Hope: They retcon Resistance 2 and 3, and follow up R:FOM with a direct sequel set in Britain again with the same atmosphere and style.

Reality: Protecting their intellectual property.

Either protecting the brand or something unconnected to it probably.

Still I'd take a decent reboot if they don't screw it up this time around.

The core alternative history concept was solid and there's a lot of potential in the concept still.

Pity Insomniac managed to go awry with R2 really.

Or just add an S on the end to make it sound bigger than it used to be.

Ugh, god no. Why would Sony do that when they've got a few successful TPS series, and they've never really had much success on the FPS side?!

The premise was far more interesting to me than the final product. I'm open-minded for a re-boot, I hope they give it to another studio - Guerilla Cambridge, perhaps?
