According to the Office of Harmonization in the Internal Market (OHIM) — the European Unions principal trademark registration catalog — Electronic Arts Inc. has filed an application for “Javelin.” The application is filed under class 9 for game software as well as Class 41 for online game software.

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

There is no indication regarding what “Javelin” may be, whether this may be a new iteration of a franchise or a possible new IP, or what consoles this may release on. Either way, make your best guesses in the comments below.
