Ubisoft files trademark for next potential hit: ‘1666’

‘1666’ was a project being worked on by Patrice Desolets, of Assassin’s Creed fame, for THQ. But since THQ filed bankruptcy and closed its doors, Ubisoft bought all intellectual property rights to the project, as well as the studio itself. After some disagreements about the direction of the project, Ubisoft placed it on hold. That was 3 years ago, and after a lengthy break it appears that Ubisoft may be ready to revisit the project.

Now, the Assassin’s Creed and Far Cry publisher has filed a new trademark for the title, under sections of that trademark application form that include ‘game software’ and ‘online component to game software.’ Ubisoft have also recently trademarked the ‘Beyond Good & Evil’ name as well, and while a trademark registration doesn’t necessarily guarantee that a game is in development, the timing is perfect. After all, E3 is only 8 weeks away (at the time of writing).

The application for the trademark was originally discovered by DualShockers, and the further information can be found on their original post here.

So, what do you think ‘1666’ will be? Let us know your theories in the comments, and see if we can get this figured out.
