A new trademark filing on Justia has revealed that Microsoft has recently filed for the trademark ‘Ender Dragon’ for computer games. In addition to video games, other trademarks filed are for the likes of toy figures, books, and clothing.
Several people online have alluded that the trademark could be something to do with the canceled Scalebound series, however, the Ender Dragon is the ‘game ending’ boss within Minecraft. The filing could suggest that Mojang is planning some kind of spinoff or separate game for the series, similar to Minecraft Legends.
Unfortunately, the filing doesn’t reveal anything more than the name of what’s planned, it’s always fun to speculate.
The Ender Dragon is the biggest naturally spawning mob in Minecraft and is the guardian to the end gateways in the original game. Defeating the Ender Dragon opens up the exit portal – Where players can leave the end and return to the overworld, whilst also being granted access to the game’s end credits.
In 2011, the creator of Minecraft Notch said that eventually, “They will be different dragons. The Ender Dragon will probably become larger, and the ones in the main world will be this size, won’t go through terrain, and will be red because dragons are red. Unfortunately, nothing materialized from Notch’s comments, but it would be a great fit for a separate Minecraft-related game.
What do you think Ender Dragon could be?
