UPDATE – AUG. 29, 2012: Electronic Arts Inc. announced the first details regarding their newest Facebook game, JetSet Secrets.

ORIGINAL STORY: Electronic Arts earlier this week filed trademark applications for Jet Set Detectives and now the company has submitted two additional filings for ‘JetSet Secrets’.

The trademark filings (Serial Numbers: 85694205 and 85694206) cover online computer games and computer game software.

There’s not much speculation as to what Jet Set Detectives will be and it may be the same case for JetSet Secrets.

While it appears the video game company took steps to secure the domain name (Whois) through the brand protection company CSC Global, it didn’t act fast enough to register  According to Whois records, the name was registered this past May.  A website offering tips on obtaining the best international flight deals is what appears online as of today.

EA did however register the name in a number of different extensions.  It even picked up the dotXXX adult domain as shown in the screenshot below. Whois

Other domains registered include:

No announcement has been made by EA, but with the number of trademark filings appearing on the United States Patent and Trademark Office website, it seems we can expect to hear something soon.

EA files trademarks for ‘Jet Set Detectives’, privately registers domain

Jet Set Detectives

Two new trademark filings by Electronic Arts have popped up on the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) website.

On July 31, 2012, EA submitted applications (Serial Number: 85691049) and (Serial Number: 85691046) for ‘Jet Set Detectives’.

The filings cover “Entertainment services, namely, providing an on-line computer game” and “Computer game software; Downloadable computer game software via a global computer network and wireless devices; Video game software”.

EA also appears to have secretly registered the matching domain (Whois) back in June through the internet brand protection company CSC Global.  Despite the owner’s name being marked private, EA is likely the registrant as they are a well known client of Corporation Service Company, which protects many of the world’s most valuable brands.

Upcoming EA titles include Overstrike (pictured above), Crysis 3 and Dead Space 3, but the video game company hasn’t made any announcement about ‘Jet Set Detectives’.
