Smilegate files trademark ‘Sierra Squad’

Smilegate is a South Korean video game developer and publisher. They are the creator of CrossFire, an FPS game with over six million concurrent players across the globe and many more distinguished titles. One of the main reasons Smilegate games have stayed relevant is the constant creation of new and varied content.

The studio is always looking for its next big hit. Besides an enormous and devoted fanbase in the CrossFire franchise, Smilegate has kept itself connected over the years by constantly improving existing games and rarely taking any break between new pieces of content.

Fans who want even more Smilegate content may be in good fortune, as a new trademark suggests a possible new game could be in development.

The latest Trademark covers the name Sierra Squad seen on the famous chizai website used for patents, designs, and trademarks published daily by the Japan patent office. It relates to “game software” for “computers, video game players, and electronic and wireless devices.” indicating that a possible game could be in the works.

Bearing in mind that it has been more than a year since we last received a game from Smilegate, and no news has been made that suggests that a new game is in development, Smilegate recently unveiled Lost Ark’s roadmap for June and July 2022, including new Advanced Class, Guardian Raids, and more.

Smilegate fans will likely want to keep an eye out for what comes next. While it’s far from confirmed, the timing of the Trademark’s appearance has sparked hope that we could see a new game.

For those unfamiliar with Trademark, a trademark can be any word, phrase, symbol, design, or combination of these things that identifies your goods or services. It’s how customers recognize you in the marketplace and distinguish you from your competitors.
