Ubisoft Trademarks Watch Dogs, Assassin’s Creed and Far Cry For Live Action Entertainment and More

on February 8, 2015 5:57 PM

Ever wondered what Just Dance would look like on the big glittery stage? Or maybe you played Watch Dogs and thought it’d be better served as an episodic television series. Then again, you may have thought that Far Cry 4 would make a decent film, in a B movie kinda way.

Well, we may see those dreams one day come to fruition as Ubisoft has spent the last few weeks filing multiple trademarks for their hottest franchises, though it’s not the usual hum-drum filings that you’d expect.

Check out the filing description for Watch Dogs, Far Cry and Just Dance:

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; presentation of live stage show performances, presentation of live show performances by costumed characters, and presentation of live theatrical performances; production and distribution of motion pictures; arranging of contests; providing amusement park and theme park services; organizing, conducting and operating video game competitions and tournaments; providing entertainment and amusement center services, namely, interactive play areas; organization of exhibitions for cultural or educational purposes; on-line publications, namely, on-line magazines featuring information, news and commentary in the field of video games.

So television programs, live show performances with costumed characters, theatrical performances and such are what Ubisoft may have in mind for Watch Dogs and Far Cry. Hm. Seems a little odd really, whilst it would make sense to see a live-action Just Dance theatrical show of sorts, I can’t really imagine Vaas, Pagan Min and Aiden Pearce busting some moves on a stage, though stranger things have happened…

Now we already know that Ubisoft has an Assassin’s Creed film in the works, but they’ve also filed an entertainment focused filing for the brand.

Entertainment services, namely, presentation of live stage show performances, presentation of live show performances by costumed characters, and presentation of live theatrical performances; arranging of contests; providing amusement park and theme park services; organizing, conducting and operating video game competitions and tournaments; providing entertainment and amusement center services, namely, interactive play areas; organization of exhibitions for cultural or educational purposes; on-line publications, namely, on-line magazines featuring information, news and commentary in the field of video games.

This one is a little odd when compared to the previous entries in the fact that there’s no mention of a television program, so maybe Ubisoft will be keeping Assassin’s Creed on the silver screen whilst Far Cry, Just Dance and Watch Dogs take on the weekly broadcast?

That’s yet to be seen, but for fans of Ubisoft’s biggest selling franchises it’s certainly something to be on the lookout for.
