Bethesda Obtains Trademark for ‘Fallout’ TV Show

FalloutAs many video games are being adapted for the big screen, video game company Bethesda is taking a major video game franchise to the small screen.

In a file posted on the United States Patent & Trade Office, Bethesda registered a trademark in the identification category as “Entertainment services in the nature of an on-going television program set in a post-nuclear apocalyptic world.” Click here to see the filing.

The action reconfirmed a tweet from Erick Todd Dellums, the voice actor as Three Dog in “Fallout 3.” He tweeted earlier this month, “To all my #Fallout3 and #ThreeDog fans: There may be more of the Dog coming! Fingers crossed!”

“Fallout” video game is a post-apocalyptic wasteland role-playing game created by Tim Cain in 1997 and published by Interplay. It spawned into a few sequels and several spin-off games. Bethesda Softworks now own the rights to produce anything related to the “Fallout” franchise,including the rights to a massively multiplayer online role-playing game.

As for “Fallout 4” video game, gamers can still hope that another sequel is coming.

Update: According to Comic Book Movie’s Alex Lynch, the registration may just be a red herring or brand protection without anything materializing from it. The tweet from Dellums may still possibly be in regards to a “Fallout 4” video game. We’ll find out soon.
