  • Trademark for The Last Guardian Abandoned by Sony

    According to the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO), the trademark for The Last Guardian has been abandoned by Sony.

    Application Filing Date: Aug. 09, 2012
    Register: Principal
    Mark Type: Trademark, Service Mark

    Status Date: Feb. 16, 2015
    Publication Date: Nov. 20, 2012
    Notice of Allowance Date: Jan. 15, 2013
    Date Abandoned: Feb. 16, 2015

    The last extension on the trademark came on July 2, 2014 from SCEA. That was their third of five allowed time extension periods. It's also important to note that Sony's previous trademark of the name (number 77750563) was also abandoned before all of their extensions had been used. What this means is anybody's guess right now. It could mean that Sony simply forgot to renew the trademark on the name. It could also mean that they did not renew on purpose and that the project is effectively dead or renamed.

    The last anybody outside of Sony has seen anything from The Last Guardian was back in 2010.
