According to two registered trademarks, EA could be planning a new game for the Alpha Centauri franchise.
The cult turn-based strategy series hasn't seen a new game since Sid Meier's Alpha Centauri was released for the PC in 1999. In 2009 the EA owned trademark expired, but these newly registered trademarks by EA have sparked speculation from fans that a new title is expected to be announced soon.
Theis for computer game software, the is for online computer games. Both of these were registered on 1st August in the US, and then later a trademark was filed for Alpha Centauri in Europe on 2nd August.
Fans are speculating that this could be an iPhone game or a new Facebook version, but there's a chance that EA could be planning something PC or console related. What would you take a guess on?
We'll contact EA to see if we can find out more.
