Ubisoft trademarks Killing Day, the FPS it announced in 2005

Is the cancelled game back on?

A new trademark application has sparked speculation that Killing Day, announced by Ubisoft seven-and-a-half years ago, may still be alive.

PlayStation Lifestyle spotted a registration for the Killing Day mark filed on 4th January 2013. Is Ubisoft simply keeping the Killing Day trademark chugging along for a rainy day, or could it have revived its cancelled first-person shooter?

Killing Day was revealed during Sony's E3 2005 press conference as part of the PlayStation 3 announcement. It was confirmed for release on Xbox 360.

One trailer was released, showing shooting and destructible environments. It's below.

Before we get too excited, it should be noted that Ubisoft registered the Killing Day trademark in May 2009 - four years after the E3 reveal, but nothing came of it.
