Last week, EA filed three separate trademarks for Darkspore, which is quickly being speculated by many to be the follow-up to 2008′s EA Maxis title Spore, which allowed both casual and hardcore players to create their own creatures in an in-depth creature creator and watch them interact with the ever-changing world around them.
As reported by GameSetWatch, Superannuation (which discovered the trademarks) believes that Darkspore could be the “Spore Title TBA” project that was briefly mentioned in EA’s Third Quarter Fiscal Year 2010 Results report that was released earlier this year.
The trademarks cover online computer games, motion picture film production, action figures, board games, playing cards, “hand held units for playing video games,” and video games in general, among other products.
With E3 on the horizon, could this be a title EA hopes to announce at the convention this June? Further speculating is all we can do at this point, but we’ll be sure to bring you more news about Darkspore as it becomes available.
