It looks as though Capcom has abandoned the trademark it filed back in 2020 for a potential online multiplayer version of the popular Dino Crisis series. Even though many fans have been begging for some revitalization of the series, whether it be a remake, remaster, or sequel, Capcom has thus far held back any attempts.

We got excited back in late 2019, when Capcom recently filed a new trademark for Dino Crisis, according to the Japanese tracking website Chizai-Watch. The trademark was filed in Japan on November 29, 2019, and published on December 17, 2019. The company filed a similar trademark for the series around the same time on December 28, 2018, and roughly 3 years ago teased a potential return for the series on Twitter, stating they could bring the series back, “If a lot of people wish.” As of the publication of this article, no such announcements have been made.
Capcom also filed a trademark for the Dino Crisis IP back in January 2020 for an online video game. The trademark listing mentioned online video games for mobile or handheld. This trademark has been abandoned while an older trademark was renewed as of November 29th.
Capcom typically files various different trademarks if they plan to use them for a game. Hopefully, the future will bring some good news, as the Dino Crisis franchise still has a lot of potential, especially for current-gen systems. It would be nice to once again see the dinosaur-favored survival horror series get the treatment it deserves.
