Sony Regains Ownership of The Last Guardian’s Trademark After Successful Petition; It’s Still Alive

on February 18, 2015 4:03 AM

If Sony losing the trademark for The Last Guardian depressed you, you can now wipe your tears, as the failure to provide an extension request was unintentional. The good folks at the house of PlayStation simply forgot to send in the necessary documents.

Following Sony’s petition for the revival of the mark, the United States Patent and Trademark Office swiftly acted on it, and just restored “The Last Guardian” to the “Live” status, as you can see at the bottom of the post.

The funniest part in this comedy of errors is that this isn’t the first time that Sony forgets to request an extension, causing The Last Guardian‘s untimely legal death. It already happened back in 2012.

Now only one question remains: will the game finally be re-announced before they forget for the third time?
