According to recent trademark filings, it seems that Ubisoft has filed trademarks for titles such as Watch Dogs, Far Cry, and Just Dance and according to the filing (part of it), it is for “Entertainment services, namely, continuing television programs and interactive television programs featuring comedy, drama, live-action, and animation, broadcast over television, satellite, audio, and video media.”
Interestingly enough Ubisoft’s filing for Assassin’s Creed is a little different as there is no mention of television programs, meaning that Ubisoft could be thinking of keeping Assassin’s Creed for the big screen. Of course these filings are no way an indication that Ubisoft will be making movies/TV shows out of the titles.
They could simply be filed to protect the names in the event that someone else tries to make a TV show, movie, or live play using those names. However at the same time given the story of Watch Dogs and Far Cry, we reckon those could make pretty decent movies, but what do you guys think? Would you like to see Watch Dogs or Far Cry brought over onto the big screen or maybe made into a TV show?
