THQ files trademark for '1666'

Mystery project could focus on the Great Fire of London

THQ appears to be working on a new game called '1666', if a trademark application filed by the company is anything to go on.


The application for 1666 specifically describes "video game software" and was filed with the United States Patent & Trademark Office on February 22.

GameSpot points out that 1666 was the year in which the Great Fire of London occurred, suggesting the possible subject matter of the mysterious title.

THQ recently laid off 240 "selling, general and administrative personnel" as part of a revised business strategy following recent heavy losses.
