EA's been spotted trademarking the name SimOcean, the scurvy dog!
The obvious chatter on the matter is that EA and developer Maxis will make a SimOcean game after the rebooting SimCity. And that's plausible, given EA's historical penchant for SimX simulation games like SimAnt, SimEarth and SimCopter.
Or, however, EA could be protecting future interests, with no real intention yet of pursuing them.
Eurogamer previewed the rebooted SimCity game last week.
