“Judas” Trademark Filed in USPTO by Take-Two Interactive

on April 27, 2016 6:16 PM

According to the United States Patent and Trademark Office, Take-Two Interactive has filed an application for “Judas.” The application is filed under Class 9 for game software and  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 features.

As many know, Take-Two Interactive is the parent publishing company of two well-know developers — Rockstar Games and 2K Games. While there is still no indication which company this mark belongs to or what the product may be, this isn’t the first time “Judas” has popped up. Earlier this week, NeoGAF discovered a similar listing from Take-Two on the European Union Intellectual Property Office. Additionally, while it isn’t dispositive, “Judasthegame.com” is registered with MarkMonitor — a web based registrar commonly used by Take-Two’s other sites.

While we aren’t certain what Judas may be, make your best guesses in the comments below.
