It will soon be 7 years since the debut of The Order: 1886, one of the titles that caused the most hype in the era of the PlayStation 4 but that unfortunately did not survive expectations and divided opinions. Despite this, it is not a bad game and it formed a fan base that did like its proposal and theme, in addition to the fact that the passage of time has given it a better place, although it is not a cult game. Some wonder if the IP is dead but as long as it exists legally there is hope and Sony has just ignited the expectation of the followers.
The Order: 1886 still alive, at least at the trademark registration level
According to information from various sources, Sony renewed the trademark registration of The Order: 1886 on December 9, which is why, initially, it is confirmed that the IP is still in force and under the control of the Japanese company. Of course, this does not say something by itself and there is no information about a related project, a sequel, a remake, a reboot or whatever, so the first thing to take into account is that it is about maintaining the rights over the IP and that the product launched, The Order: 1886, remain current in the market.
That said, Sony’s registration renewal inevitably sparked fan hype, as there are elements to consider a second chance for the franchise despite the divided reception it had at the time.
Another detail to take into account is that Ready at Dawn, the study responsible for The Order: 1886, It already belongs to Facebook and although they have independence to work on projects, it seems difficult for him to work on the franchise again, so if there are plans on the part of Sony it will be with a member of PlayStation Studios or an external team.
The Order: 1886 It is available on PS4 and in this link you will find all the related information.
