Massively reports that EVE Online developer CCP has filed a trademark for "Dust 514" relating to "entertainment services" and an "online computer game".

The Dust 514 logo shows a gas mask set into a winged badge. The style has passing similarities to the EVE Online logo - indeed the stripes of the badge, with a V at the centre, could almost be said to read "EVE".

CCP boss Hilmar Petursson will announce the developer's "latest project" during a speech at GDC Europe, on Tuesday 18th ahead of the Cologne gamescom this month.

Furthermore, at last year's Fanfest convention, CCP showed footage of a sci-fi FPS that appeared to be set in the EVE universe, and mentioned that the company had a "console strategy" for PS3 and Xbox 360. The Dust 514 logo certainly seems consistent with this idea.

CCP is also working on a dark contemporary horror MMO based on the World of Darkness table-top RPGs.

We'll know more about CCP's plans in a couple of weeks, so stay tuned.
