Cancelled GTA game called sin city

Recommended Posts

ApolloThunder

As you can see Take two interactive has abandoned its trademark for this game back in 2008 according to the U.S. Patent Trademark Office.It was probably supposed to be next GTA after San Andreas.

Yeah, I'm not buying this.

 

Sin City, the movie, was released March 2005, months before the game was supposedly given allowance.

 

Sin City, the graphic novel, (which the movie above was based off of), was being published between 1991-1992, years before the game was also supposedly given allowance.

 

So unless R* had the balls to literally steal the title of a movie and graphic novel, and think they could get away with it, then I don't know what to say.

Well if you don't believe me here is the source,

http://tsdr.uspto.gov/#caseNumber=78342305&caseSearchType=US_APPLICATION&caseType=SERIAL_NO&searchType=statusSearch

if you click on current owner(s) information you can clearly see that it says take two interactive inc.

here is another proof

I dunno where I heard this from originally, but I thought I read some explanation years ago that basically said they bought up these trademarks just to hold onto them, which is why they also bought the rights to "Grand Theft Auto Bogota" and "Grand Theft Auto Tokyo." Sin City is kind of a generic name for a GTA, feels more like some kind of title for a cheap mobile knockoff, but they could have registered the trademark just to hold onto it for whatever reason without having concrete plans.

Maybe Sin City was a working title/name for Las Venturas at some point? Would've fit to call their version of Las Vegas that the same way they called Miami 'Vice City' and New York 'Liberty City'.

I remember hearing about this back in the day, and even then I assumed it was nothing, considering "Sin City" is another name for Vegas, and we'd already been there in SA.
