ZeniMax, Bethesda parent company has just applied for a trademark for a new game that will be called “Deathloop.” According to the information written in the trademark application filed with the US Patent & Trademark Office, the game might be an online mobile game. This is all the information available for now.
Back in 2013, ZeniMax had a trademark application for Starfield, and five years later Bethesda Game Studios announced that Starfield would be one of the future projects. So, even though it’s far away from being announced, Deathloop could be a game in the future or might as well not be a game at all – since many trademarked projects get to be released.
The first mobile game from Bethesda is Fallout Shelter, which was incredibly successful, so the company might reconsider adding a new game in this area. In 2015, Bethesda opened a studio in Montreal, and the branch was dedicated mostly to developing mobile games.
How Fun Will It Be for Players in a Deathloop Game?
As to what could Deathloop might refer to, a death loop in a video game is when you reload the game after a save, and the players find themselves in a situation that only ends with them dying.
We hope Deathloop will be a new exciting game and it’s not just Bethesda trademarking the name for potential use in the future.
Their latest big game was Fallout 76 which was launched in November 2018 for PC, Xbox One and PS4. Unfortunately, although highly anticipated, it has received mixed reactions. Nonetheless, it did sell well in the US. The next mobile game from Bethesda is The Elder Scrolls Blades, the first one from the long RPG series, which will be available only on mobile devices. Expect it to be launched in “early 2019.” Will it be presented before or after GDC 2019 (18 March)? We can only wait and see.
