"Just two months out from E3 2014, PlayStation company Sony Computer Entertainment America has filed a trademark application for a new game called “Bloodborne.” Sony filed the trademark application (spotted by Siliconera) with the United States Patent & Trademark Office (USPTO) on April 24.Earlier this month, the company trademarked unannounced games called Kill Strain and Entwined. If Sony is to announce these games at E3 this summer, we don’t have much longer to wait. E3 2014 runs June 10-12 in Los Angeles, though Sony typically holds its main presentation–where new titles are often announced–on the Monday before the official start to the show."
