Activision applied for several U.S. trademarks this past week related to Call of Duty: Black Ops II which is scheduled to be released this November. The trademark applications include “The Roman Numeral II”, “The Future is Black” and “There’s a Soldier in All of Us”.
“The Future is Black” is a tagline for the game and was used in the official reveal trailer that was published back in the beginning of May. The filing (Serial Number: 85673145) like the others in the batch, covers computer game software and entertainment services.
The company looks to be protecting its IP as it ramps up marketing ahead of the game’s release.
“There’s a soldier in all of us” has been a tagline for Black Ops since the first game released worldwide in November 2010. The trademark application (Serial Number: 85673131) was filed along with the others on July 10.
