Bethesda parent company Zenimax has filed a brand new trademark request for the “Hearth Fire” name, which also points to a possible downloadable expansion for The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim.
Zenimax has made a habit of trademarking the names of any and all DLC packs for games like Fallout: New Vegas or the more recent Skyrim, as it reserved the Dawnguard
name months before Bethesda actually announced the upcoming expansion.
After hearing about a new trademark earlier this month for the Dragonborn
title, the company has now moved to register the “Hearth Fire” name, according to Fusible
Skyrim fans will remember that a certain skill book in the 2920 series is called Hearth Fire, which improves the player’s Conjuration abilities.
What’s more, one of the 12 seasons in the Elder Scrolls universe is also called Hearthfire, so it’s unclear what the implications of the name actually are.
Expect some more details about Skyrim’s DLC plans in the near future.
