No One Lives Forever games trademarks filed

The classic No One Lives Forever has gone through some odd hand-changing over the years, to the point that as of this time last year we weren't sure who even held the rights to publish them. The mystery got a new wrinkle, as PC publisher Night Dive Studios has filed trademarks and may plan to republish them.

Siliconera reports that the company filed trademarks for No One Lives Forever, The Operative, Contract J.A.C.K., and A Spy in H.A.R.M.'s Way. All of those are connected to the NOLF franchise, and the fact that Night Life registered them would seem to indicate that it now holds the rights. The publisher makes its bones by reissuing classic PC games like System Shock 2, so it would only make sense that it will bring back this series as well.
