Sony Files Trademark “Days Gone” For Games and Online Games

According to a registration with the United States Patent and Trademark Office, on December 28th Sony filed for a rather vague but interesting mark named “Days Gone.”

The mark is filed under Class 9, identifying game software, as well as Class 41, online game software.

It’s worth mentioning that class 41 doesn’t necessarily mean that, if we’re talking about a new game, it will be online. The class is required for any kind of online feature, including smaller ones like leaderboards and similar.

As of yet, Sony hasn’t shown or released anything that gives a clue to what this trademark might be related to. Could it be a new IP? Only time will tell. You can drop your best guesses in the comments and check out the listing below:

  • WingsOfChicken

    New Naughty Dog game

  • Vagineer1

    Incredibly unlikely but this turned out to be Dark Cloud 3 I’d cry.

    • Carlo

      I’d cry too but considering L5 is already doing NNK2 that’s impossible

      • Vagineer1

        Akihiro did say they are announcing a sequel to a series in 2016 so we still have hope.

        • Carlo

          Well announcing is one thing developing it is another. They might announce it once NNK2 is nearly done. Having played DC1/2 in the last month I seriously want DC3 to be a thing

          • Vagineer1

            To be honest at this point just knowing DC3 exists would be enough to satisfy me until it’s release.

  • Forever Negative

    Probably Kojima’s game

  • JeronimoPW

    Sony Bend game maybe?

    • kevin

      Exactly what I was thinking

    • phar0ahad3

      First thought that came to my head !!!!!!

    • Daniel Gonzalez

      Perhaps.

      • drjonesjnr

        I’m so picturing peter griffin saying that lol

  • Dirk Farkington

    Something to do with Everquest Next, maybe?

    • They sold the EQ I.P. when they disbanded SOE.

      • Senpai Gundam

        They didn’t disband them, they sold the entire studio.

      • Dirk Farkington

        Aha, that one slipped by me.

    I remember when I read an article like this for The Last of Us……………..

  • Days Gone…
    Perfect title for an open world horror game.

    • Tmfwang

      Cheerful

    • TheFatDelinquent

      My thoughts exactly! Maybe with a survival aspect? On the PC, this genre is meh since there is a lot of em there but on consoles…Not a lot.

      • Absolutely!
        Loooking forward to this.

  • Eric Davenport

    It’s a revolutionary indie game about being bored of life until better games come out.

  • Kylo Ren

    You need a trainer, I can teach you the force..

  • VenomSnake
