Blizzard Acquires Trademark For Metal Arms, New Game Incoming?

By   /   Jun 18, 2014

Blizzard Entertainment has acquired the trademark for Metal Arms, which was previously owned by Sierra Entertainment.

Sierra Entertainment had the rights for this name before as the publisher released Metal Arms: Glitch in the System, way back in 2003, then in 2006 the game’s developer Swingin’ Ape Studios was acquired by Blizzard.

Now, this new trademark could mean that Blizzard is going to announce a brand new title of the same name or something related to it.

Previously, there have been rumors that Blizzard is going to reveal a brand new top secret title in 2014, which could be the Project Titan or a brand new game (Metal Arms).

It has been almost eight years since Blizzard acquired Swingin’ Ape Studios so there is a huge possibility that a Metal Arms sequel is in bound.

2003’s Metal Arms: Glitch in the System was a very good game as it received very good reception upon its release from the critics.

The game was played in a third person perspective, with more than 17 accessible weapons that could be upgraded using the upgrade kits that were scattered around in different locations.

Not only that, the game featured a multiplayer component as well, in which up to four players could compete in several unique game modes.

Blizzard does take its time to announce new games, but we hope we get to see what this new trademark is all about, sooner rather than later.
