Back in 2013, THQ teased a new game called 1666: Amsterdam right before the studio went bankrupt and was sold to Ubisoft. Ubisoft gained the rights to the game after the publisher attained THQ, but the project was suspended and never made it past the concept stage. The game was being developed by Assassin’s Creed creator Patrice Désilets, who was unceremoniously terminated three months after Ubisoft’s acquisition of THQ. According to a new listing from the United States Patent and Trademark Office, Ubisoft has now filed for a new class 9 trademark for “1666.”
A class 9 trademark is specifically used for game software, so the ”
1666” trademark could definitely be referring to the title that was suspended by Ubisoft in 2013. Not much is known about the IP, although Patrice Désilets did say that it would be similar to Assassin’s Creed. What kind of game do you think “1666” could be? Sound off in the comments below!
