Overwatch Trademark Suspended… Again

Blizzard Entertainment’s upcoming class-based shooter Overwatch is facing trademark issues again, as the USPTO has suspended the studio’s rights to the name for a second time.

Earlier this year, a similar suspension was made on the grounds of brand confusion with similar trademarks already owned by Innovis Labs. However, a compromise was made shortly thereafter in the form of a co-existence agreement between Blizzard and Innovis.

Oddly enough, the new suspension, which was filed yesterday, once again cites brand confusion as the reason for challenging Blizzard’s ownership of the name Overwatch. It appears Innovis Labs has not amended its prior application.

Fifty Shades Director Not Returning For Sequels

Sam Taylor-Johnson will not return to direct either of the two sequels to the movie adaptation of Fifty Shades of Grey.

Speaking with Deadline, Taylor-Johnson said: “While I will not be returning to direct the sequels, I wish nothing but success to whosoever takes on the exciting challenges of films two and three.”

‘Call of Duty’ Series Tops 175 Million Games Sold

Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2 Banner

For over a decade, the Call of Duty franchise has been making a play for gamers’ money. Every year, publisher Activision releases a brand new edition of the first-person shooter, including bigger set-pieces and even performances from Academy Award-winning actors to get people interested.

Last year’s Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare turned Call of Duty‘s usual gameplay on its head by throwing super-powered exo suits into the mix. That was done in an attempt to revitalize the franchise after several years of sliding sales but Advanced Warfare actually sold less than 2013’s Call of Duty: Ghosts.
