The title of the next game in EA’s Need for Speed racing series may have been revealed, after the publisher this week filed a European trademark for Need for Speed Arena.
According to the European Union Intellectual Property Office, the studio has applied for a trademark for the title in Nice classes nine and 41. These cover a broad range of goods and services, but most significantly, video game software and online video games.
The original game in the long-running series was released back in 1994, and has spawned many successors and spin-offs, including a 2014 full-length feature film starring Aaron Paul.
The latest entry in the franchise, Need for Speed, was released last year for PS4, Xbox One and PC, and is considered a full reboot of the series.
