Ubisoft's Watch Dogs Trademark Abandonment was Fraud
Filed under: WATCH DOGS

Yesterday it was reported that Ubisoft filed an "express abandonment" for the trademark "Watch Dogs." Ubisoft is now claiming that this wasn't a mistake—it was fraud.

Ubisoft filed the following the statement with the US Patent and Trade Office:

On February 1, 2014, Ubisoft Entertainment received an email from TEAS@uspto.gov notifying Ubisoft Entertainment that a Request for Express Abandonment had been filed in connection with Application Serial No. 85642398. The Request for Express Abandonment purports to be signed by the Chief Executive Officer of Ubisoft Entertainment, Yves Guillemot.

The Request for Express Abandonment is fraudulent and was not filed by Ubisoft Entertainment or its representative.

So Watch Dogs will not become Assassin's Creed V, and it's not a sign of Half-Life 3. It should still make Ubisoft's second quarter release goal.
