Sony applies for trademarks on Entwined and Kill Strain

Applications signed early last week

Sony Computer Entertainment America has filed two new video game trademark applications with the US Patent & Trademark Office.


NeoGAF user Rösti spotted the applications for "Entwined" and "Kill Strain", which were respecitvely signed on April 14 and April 15. They are both identified as pertaining to "Computer game software; Downloadable computer game software via a global computer network and wireless devices; Video game software".

Sony has made no public announcements about either property. Although SCEA filed the applications in the US, any of Sony Computer Entertainment's worldwide studios may be working on the associated properties.

We've reached out to SCEA to see if the company can tell us more about these new properties. We may hear more at E3 2014, where Sony is expected to hold its annual media briefing on June 9.

Former SCEA CEO Jack Tretton stepped down from his position on March 31, as the "result of a mutual agreement between Mr. Tretton and SCEA not to renew their contractual relationship".

More than 20.5 million PS4 games have been sold since the system launched in November.
