Capcom has seemingly abandoned a trademark filed earlier this year for an online multiplayer Dino Crisis game. While the trademark was filed a few months ago, it was recently spotted only to have been abandoned by the company. Capcom failed to provide a Statement of Use, resulting in the trademark expiring.
As reported by PlayStation Lifestyle, Capcom filed a trademark for what would’ve been an online Dino Crisis game, which included the possibility of an online multiplayer game for mobile and handheld devices. However, the trademark was abandoned in August. Capcom failed to provide any evidence that they were intending to use the trademark. No promotional material, announcements or artwork had been made public, leading to the trademark being abandoned entirely.
However, the good news is that Capcom still retains the original Dino Crisis trademark filed back in 1999 for the original PlayStation games. This trademark was renewed in November this year, though it doesn’t mean that Capcom is actually working on a new game in the series as they’ve mostly renewed the trademark to hang onto the IP for several years.
Despite rumblings of a Dino Crisis remake being in development, nothing concrete has surfaced from any reliable sources. Back in the mid-2010s, Dead Rising developer Capcom Vancouver pitched a Dino Crisis reboot before the company shut its doors. Since then, we’ve heard little to nothing about Capcom’s dinosaur survival horror series. It’s possible that early development may have already begun on a new Dino Crisis game or remake (since remake fever seems to be swirling around Capcom’s offices), but we wouldn’t hold our breath.
Thanks to the infamous GeForce Now internal database leak, Capcom is reportedly working on Dragon’s Dogma 2 and Monster Hunter 6, which will likely be the multiplatform sequel to 2018’s Monster Hunter World.
