Future Call of Duty names now trademarked

Via the all-seeing eye of superannuation, Activision’s future plans for the Call of Duty franchise were recently discovered. A number of domains were registered, for names such as Future Warfare, Advanced Warfare, Secret Warfare and Space Warfare. If proof is what you need to take these registrations seriously, then proof is what you’ll get.

superannuation, again, is reporting that Activision has now also trademarked the names Call of Duty Advanced WarfareCall of Duty Future WarfareCall of Duty Secret WarfareCall of Duty Space WarfareFuture WarfareSecret Warfare, and Space Warfare. The publisher seems dead serious about keeping the franchise going despite the recent loss of Modern Warfare-attached employees at Infinity Ward to Respawn.

But seriously, “Secret Warfare?” and “Space Warfare?” How good can something going under those names actually get?
