Microsoft trademarks ‘Leap Experience Pioneers’ for game software

"Microsoft Xbox Kinect"

Microsoft Corporation submitted an application this week with the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) for ‘Leap Experience Pioneers’.

The filing (Serial Number: 85699906), which covers “game software”, comes a little over a week after the company filed to trademark ‘Galactic Reign’ for another yet to be announced game project.

Being that the goods and services only cover “game software”, it’s unknown what Microsoft has planned.

A quick check of the term ‘Leap Experience Pioneers’ across major social networks and popular domain names, shows that Microsoft isn’t that interested yet in owning the brand.   Microsoft hasn’t grabbed at the time of this story, but that doesn’t mean the company won’t have success in the future, should it want the name.

The company has made no official announcement, so for now, we’ll have to wait and see what Microsoft is working on.
