Medieval 3 or “Total War: Medieval” patent

Anyone else heard this rumor about the patent being placed for “Total War: medieval”
(Notably not called medieval 3)? I’m not sure if there is any validity to this or if it means anything exactly, but this was the way Troy was discovered before it was announced

    It could could mean any number of things.

    It could be just CA renewing the copyright on the title, it could be a simple rebrand (they rebranded all the older games last year I think), or it could genuinely be a Total War: Medieval 3 (or a reboot so they don't use the "3").

    Whatever it is, it's way too early to tell. It'll be at least another year or more before we start to hear anything more about.

    I doubt they'd be developing 4 games simultaneously. They'll wait for WH3 release before making any news, and even then I doubt it. Also, you sure this belongs here.

    If it is rebreanding therefore Rome 1 should have been rebranded as well but it only applies to medieval.

    It means something for sure.

    CA rebrands M1 but not R1 and M2? Hmmmmm....

    that is odd and even if CA does a "Medieval trilogy", wouldn't they want the "cloud" of M2 by naming the first game M3?

    Its a shame nobody seems to be an expert on those things, but I wonder if maybe something with M1 has round out and needed renewed trademark.

    How often and how easy is it to search for these trade marks though? Could have been missed or could be pending. But yeah would expect they'd have put a 3 on it otherwise, they updated the numeral with Shogun and Rome even though they use the older naming convention (currently at least)

    It's probably just for the fact that the TW games were renamed to put the Total War before the name of each game.

    Trilogy ala mortal empires, going for the Chinese market by including medieval China maybe. Hence first one is not called medieval 3

    Why not make it in R1 as well?

    Then wouldn't they have done it way earlier?

    I think this is a good rumour for M3. I remember that CA once said that they do not really want to go past a 3 with any of their games. So it might be a reboot for the medieval era.

    I don't know dude.

    I mean, they did rename all the TW games other than Rome 1 to be Total War whatever it is.


    And I honestly think that the medieval period doesn't have nearly as much going for it as a lot of people think.

    Because I don't really see many of the factions having that much different about them, aside from some rather superficial stuff like English Longbows or Genoese Crossbows, which are just fancy versions of archers and crossbowmen.
