Ubisoft’s 1666 Resurfaces In New Trademark Filing

Fate's sense of irony resurfaces...

In 2007, Patrice Désilets released Assassin’s Creed, a brand new IP that would go on to become Ubisoft’s flagship franchise in just a few short years. Désilets would go on to leave Ubisoft eventually, and would join up with American publisher THQ, with whom he would work on a new IP- 1666: Amsterdam.

However, fate has a sense of irony, and THQ would go bankrupt, leaving its properties to be hawked to any takers. As luck would have it, 1666 would be picked up by Ubisoft, bringing Patrice Désilets right back into the fold. Désilets would later be fired shortly afterwards, but Ubisoft would retain the 1666 IP- an IP that would then go silent.

That silence has been broken now, however- a new trademark filing (dug up by DualShockers), filed at the US Patent and Trademark office (USPTO) on April 13 by Ubisoft seems to be specifically for 1666 (it appears as though ‘Amsterdam’ has been dropped from the title). It seems as though Ubisoft has not yet forgotten about this IP- could this be their new IP debut at E3 this year, where they have traditionally been known to end their shows by taking the wraps off of a new game?

If it is, we’ll find out soon, because E3 is not just under two months away.
