EA Trademarks ‘SimOcean’

Posted on April 27, 2012 AT 07:01am

THE BUZZ: EA may be set to add another branch to the Sim family tree, if a new trademark filed by the company is anything to go by.

The publisher filed a trademark for SimOcean, which has sparked rumors of Maxis taking the franchise to new aquatic depths.

EGM’s TAKE: The Sim series has stretched far and wide over the course of the franchise, it goes so much further than just The Sims and SimCity. It’s not too far-fetched for Maxis to be working on an underwater sim, but how would they implement it? Would it be SimCity underwater, or an aquamarine life sim? There are a few routes that the team could head down. However, just because there’s a trademark it doesn’t mean a game will ever get made.

Would you like to see an underwater sim? Let us know in the comments below.

An ability to go many hours without sleep and a quick wit make him ideal for his role as associate editor at EGMNOW.com. He often thinks back to the days when the very idea of this career seemed like nothing but an impossible dream. Follow him on Twitter @mattyjb89. Meet the rest of the crew.
