Capcom has been granted a final trademark extension for their very quiet Deep Down trademark from the United States Patent and Trademark Office today. The publisher has six months to prove that the trademark is being used for commerce within the US before it's automatically abandoned under national law.
Prolonged until February 9, 2017, this is the fifth extension granted for the game since its announcement in 2013 as a poster boy for the new Panta Rhei engine. The title hasn't been mentioned in any official announcements in over a year.
Capcom's request states that it "maintains its efforts in conducting product and/or service research or development with respect to the allowed goods and services," binding them in a law equivalent to a sworn statement at court.
With Tokyo Game Show rapidly approaching in September, it remains a matter of time before we find out whether or not Deep Down sees the light of day again.
