Update: Some hope restored: http://venturebeat.com/2015/02/16/so...expired-again/

Today, on February 16, 2015, trademark U.S. serial number 85700141, The Last Guardian, was abandoned:

Generated on: This page was generated by TSDR on 2015-02-16 11:27:22 EST
Mark: THE LAST GUARDIAN
US Serial Number: 85700141 Application Filing Date: Aug. 09, 2012
Register: Principal
Mark Type: Trademark, Service Mark
Status: Abandoned because no Statement of Use or Extension Request timely filed after Notice of Allowance was issued. To view all documents in this file, click on the Trademark Document Retrieval link at the top of this page.
Status Date: Feb. 16, 2015
Publication Date: Nov. 20, 2012
Notice of Allowance Date: Jan. 15, 2013
Date Abandoned: Feb. 16, 2015

Source: http://tsdr.uspto.gov/#caseNumber=85...e=statusSearch

On July 02, 2014, Sony Computer Entertainment America LLC filed the third (of five) Extension of Time to File SOU.

Note: The previous application, trademark U.S. serial number 77750563, was also abandoned before all extension requests had been used. This news doesn't bode well for the future of this game however.

They're renaming it to The First Guardian so they can set it up to be an annual franchise

To keep a trademark, you actually have to have an intent to use it in commerce at some point in the near future. So no surprises here...

They just need to admit that the game is dead. It sucks for all the people that have a thread of hope.

It's better to just stop looking for this game. Just assume it's dead any maybe it'll surprise us in a few years.

They're either renaming or they'll reapply for the mark once the game gets re-announced and they can show sufficient use/marketing spend.

How would it benefit Sony in any way to keep saying it's alive if they canned it?

We really are the Last of the Guardians.

Probably a rename, or it's now an altogether different game. I'd be shocked if it was the same concept originally shown at all by this point.

If it is, it's heavily retooled.

GAF/internet hype is not the same thing as mainstream hype. The name carries no significant value for Sony.

Isn't that the point? They haven't said it's canned, so we have to assume it's still being worked on.

About as much sense as working on a game for 8 - 10 years.
