Players have already begun speculating as to what this trademark, Intergalactic: The Heretic Prophet, might entail. One user on X (formerly known as Twitter) writes, “Either this is Helldivers 2 related or something completely different.” Many others seem to be placing their bets on this trademark being related to Cory Balrog’s new IP which is rumored to be a sci-fi experience.

It’s worth noting that Santa Monica Studios has been working on the God of War series for some time now. The first entry in this new franchise was released on the PS4 in 2018 with the sequel making landfall in 2022 alongside FromSoftware’s Elden Ring. Last year, God of War: Ragnarok also received its free Valhalla DLC. This would indicate that if work was underway on the rumored sci-fi IP, progress would most likely be minimal.

Some players also believe that the trademark of Intergalactic: The Heretic Prophet may also be tied to leaked footage of what appears to be a third-person sci-fi shooter.

As of now, there’s no concrete information to go off of, and oftentimes, trademarks filed for products aren’t used as final names. I’d suggest you take all of this information with several servings of salt until any official announcements.
