SCE filed a trademark for Starhawk on April 9 for a computer or video game and operating a real-time game for others over a global and local area computer network.

Last month we broke the news that Dylan Jobe and other members of Incognito Entertainment had left the company to form their own studio.

We also reported that sources had told us that LightBox Interactive Studio was hard at work on a new take on Warhawk. The game, described as Warhawk in space, has been in development for some time, we reported.

Reached for comment in March Jobe told Kotaku that it was too early to comment on what they were working on, but that they have some "really exciting stuff in development that our Warhawk fans *and* new players will love."

All signs seem to point to Warhawk in space.

We've contacted Jobe for comment and will update if and when we hear back.

DISCUSSION

I doubt that this is likely, but I would like to see this "StarHawk" released as an "add-on." I like the current universe and it seems like a large expansion would be fitting to add space-capeble vehicles to the universe and be able to transition from terrestrial environments to space-based ones in real-time, or something like it. If not that, then just create "maps" that are in space. All being said, I'd pay $39.99 to be able to download that add-on. Maybe even $59.99...
