Valve files 'Neon Prime' trademark for new video game software

The company has filed a trademark that includes mention of video game software and online entertainment services.

A recent trademark filing from Valve has piqued gamer curiosity this week as the application includes mention of video game software. More specifically, Valve registered a trademark for “Neon Prime” with two records listed by the United States Patent and Trademark Office.

One record references entertainment services such as online video games, while the other points to computer software. Under the Goods and Services section of the first trademark record, the following is outlined:

Meanwhile, the second trademark record includes mention of computer game software.

The filing date for the Neon Prime trademark is October 10, while the priority date is listed as September 16. This emphasizes the filing as something that’s relatively recent, though Valve has yet to share hints as to what this video game-related project might be.

That being said, Valve’s own Gabe Newell remarked last year that the company has multiple games in development that it plans to announce in the future. "We definitely have games in development that we're going to be announcing — it's fun to ship games," Newell said at the time.

It seems like that future could be fast approaching, and we’ll be sure to keep you posted on updates regarding Neon Prime as more information is revealed in the future. Until then, be sure to catch up with some of our previous coverage including Gabe Newell confirming that more Valve games are in development, and the exciting news that Valve’s Steam Deck and Dock are now available without a reservation.

      As a gamer, I have to say, this has actually caught my attention. I'm constantly excited to see what Valve has in save for us, and it looks like they have some large plans with a couple of video games in development.

      The trademark filing mentions online video games, computer software, and entertainment services, which indicates that "Neon Prime" could be a promising project. I'm certainly curious to know extra about the game and what style it falls into. Will it be a first-person shooter like Half-Life or some thing really different?

      Valve has always been recognised for their innovative and extremely good games, so I have high expectations for "Neon Prime." I hope they carry something clean and exciting to the gaming community.

      Until we get greater information, let's hold our eyes peeled for updates on this interesting project. And hey, if you're as excited as I am, click this link to stay tuned for the latest news:
