BlackSite: Area 51 Trademark Renewed by Warner

By   /   2 years ago

Warner Bros. Games has been spotted to have had renewed the trademark for BlackSite: Area 51 last week with the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office.

The trademark filing reveals no information as to whether Warner plans to reboot the franchise or not. For all we know, this could simply be a trademark filed to protect the company’s assets. However, if they do plan on reviving the series, then who will be handling the development?

Filed on April 23, the trademark only mentions to be related to an assortment of digital goods, including video game software and computer game software for use on mobile and cellular phones.

The original BlackSite: Area 51 was a generic sci-fi first-person shooter in the hands of Midway Games. The game was released in 2007 for the PS3, Xbox 360 and PC and was received with mixed reviews. In 2009, Warner Bros. purchased most of Midway’s assets, including BlackSite: Area 51.

Warner will hopefully pass along a statement over the franchise’s future. There’s also E3 in bound, which might be a sound time for Warner to do some announcements.

It’s about time Warner began recycling their Midway assets.
