Bethesda/ZeniMax Files Trademark Request For Unannounced New Title, Spyteam
Could be related to another project, an "online team-based PvPvE third-person shooter based on a major comic license."
Bethesda Softworks seems to have a new game in development, and that news could be as secretive as the subject of the title itself. Over the weekend, streamer and news hawk Skullzi discovered (and was quoted by Massively OP regarding) Spyteam, a title that Bethesda and ZeniMax trademarked in late January:
Spyteam, a secret Bethesda game that seems to have been in the works for some time now, recently had its trademark application filed for 2022. Could we finally find out what this game is later in the year?#Bethesda #Xbox pic.twitter.com/WVMDixotR5

According to Video Games Chronicle, this isn't the first time the trademark application for Spyteam has popped up, having also been discovered in 2020 and 2015. VGC believes that the game "may be tied to a project that Human Head Studios was working on prior to being acquired by ZeniMax and changing into Roundhouse Studios." That game was described as an "online team-based PvPvE third-person shooter based on a major comic license."
When I hear "spy" and "online game," my first thought is The Agency: Covert Ops, the spy-based MMORPG that was developed by Sony Online Entertainment in the late 2000s and cancelled in 2011. It never made it into any kind of publicly playable form -- this was before early access was standard -- but what bits we did see of its gameplay looked pretty enjoyable.
Obviously, Spyteam is being developed by a completely different company, and this title may not be indicative of the final product, but a spy-based MMO would at least be something different from the hundreds of fantasy or sci-fi titles that are currently in the market. Does it sound like something you'd be interested in checking out?
