Square Enix Files Trademark For “Championship Manager Legends”

By Spencer . August 26, 2010 . 3:27pm

Square Enix recently filed two different trademarks for what sounds like the same game, or two games from the same genre. They’re titled The Manager and Championship Manager Legends.




What sort of game can you think of that would likely fit the bill given these names? Some sort of sports management simulation perhaps? Maybe a soccer game?


Unlike other Square Enix trademarks, these were registered by Square Enix’s European division.

    It’s a football simulation game where you play as manager,it was pretty popular in the past the IP was owned by Eidos so that’s why the one filing for trademarks is SE-Europe.

    Legend might suggest something different with the game thought.

    Well BGS is the studio which produces(or did, depends how you look at the way things are currently going) the recent versions of Championship Manager.
    However, they’ve not said anything new about the future of Championship Manager. They have alluded to new titles/games and new platforms. But said nothing of a new version of Championship Manager. What these platforms are is anyone guess, it’s not console as they’ve said outright no to consoles. So it’s either PC/Mac and portable platforms such as iPhone, iPad, Android or a web based game (since they’ve cancelled one recently)

    BGS can no longer produce games themselves in London because they made staff redundant. But Square Enix have spoken of using it’s Shanghai studio for dev work while BGS are a “creative hub”

    Although this does help us fans of CM get an idea of whats going on since BGS won’t tell us anything. After all they did say they were going to post news after the world cup about games we can play next season (at the end of last season so next season = one currently started) So world cup over and season started and we’ve yet to hear anything. But the boss did visit Shanghai a week or two ago!
