Blizzard Entertainment Acquires Metal Arms Trademark
The United States Patent and Trademark Office lists Blizzard Entertainment as the last listed owner of the Metal Arms trademark. Metal Arms, was formerly registered by Sierra Entertainment and it was originally developed by Swingin’ Ape Studios — which took the reins of StarCraft: Ghost (after Nihilistic departed development).
Blizzard Entertainment acquired Swingin’ Ape Studios in May 16, 2006.
Metal Arms was a top-notch FPS game. Blizzard Entertainment is currently developing a few unannounced games — the Next-Gen MMO Titan, the unannounced game, and a third one. These are now dubbed Unannounced Games (in plural) at the Blizzard Careers page.
It is all speculation at this point. The only fact is that Metal Arms appears on the Blizzard Entertainment trademark list. Of course, it might have simply been … a glitch in the system. got it?
