EA Files Trademark for Unravel, Announcement Could be Close
Electronic Arts has filed a trademark application for a video game property called “Unravel,” meaning that we may hear about a new game from the publisher soon.
The trademark was filed at the European Office for Harmonization in the Internal Market and was spotted by an eagle-eyed NeoGaf user. The filing is “under examination” and is for a “downloadable computer game software via a global computer network and wireless devices; video game software.”
Unravel doesn’t ring any bells and seems to be a brand new IP, which coming from EA is a huge surprise. Over the years we have seen the company being more comfortable and successful by releasing installments for established franchises, rather than working on something fresh.
Not that they didn’t try, their most recent attempts at something new weren’t successful. The company had to cancel Dawngate and Shadow Realms after fans highly criticized the project.
When the announcement for Shadow Realms cancellation was made, Bioware said the team is deep into development of new projects. So is Unravel the new project they were working on? We can’t say for sure and can only speculate.
EA hasn’t revealed which of its studios is developing Unravel or when we’ll know more about the project. Since we are so close to E3, it’s unlikely EA will say a word before the event.
