The Walking Dead Creator Files a Trademark Hinting at New Game

A trademark for "The Walking Dead: Destinies" hints at a potential new game.

If you are a fan of the zombie-apocalypse genre, then you have surely watched or even played The Walking Dead. Not only has the franchised found massive success with its TV series, but also the games. The game series consists of five games, four of which are the main ones, namely The Walking Dead: Season One Season 2, then Michonne, followed by A New Frontier and The Final Season.

Although many thought that would be the end of it, our team at TopTierList has found a new trademark filed by Robert Kirkman, LLC, the creator of The Walking Dead, suggesting that there might be a new game in the works. The trademark is for “The Walking Dead: Destinies,” and the text in “Goods and Services” all point toward a potential game.

Major Points

  • A recent trademark suggests there might be a new The Walking Dead game in the works.
  • The game will likely be called The Walking Dead: Destinies.
  • Since it is still a trademark and nothing official has been said, they can cancel or even scrap the game.

The Walking Dead has been praised for many things, especially for revitalizing life in the adventure game genre, as it was thought to be languishing since early 2000. It has one of the strongest narratives, and player choices in-game deeply impact every gamer.

Still, as all things come to an end, the creator thought it best to end the series with The Final Season and gave it a proper send-off. However, they may have new plans to revive the franchise in gaming with either a new sequel to the series or a completely new one, opening up many more possibilities for future sequels.

As for some of you who might be wondering why we believe it is a game, the text in “Goods and Services” shows the purpose of a trademark and where it will be used. The text for this trademark all points toward a potential new game.

There is also a possibility it is another game like The Walking Dead: Saints & Sinners. But even a game like that would be really fun. So, please don’t get your hopes too high, as it is still a trademark. Once further information has been announced, we can find out more about the game.

But even then, it can take any amount of time for that to happen because there is no set time limit for when a studio announces a title after filing the trademark. It can take anywhere from days to even years.

If you don’t know how trademarks work, any word, phrase, symbol, design, or their combination that identifies your goods or services is called a trademark. It’s how customers recognize you in the marketplace and distinguish you from your competitors.

Therefore, it is entirely possible they even abandon the game because we don’t know how far into the development they might be. They can be in the development’s early concept phase or almost done. Regardless, an announcement should come eventually if the game is indeed in development.

That is all for today! What do you think this new trademark implies? Do you think a new The Walking Dead game is coming soon? Share your thoughts with us below, and we will get back to you!
