Ahead Of E3, Microsoft Trademarks “Direct Reality” And It Might Be Related To Gaming

It looks like one of Microsoft’s E3 2017 surprises might have been revealed early. The company filed a trademark application for something called “Direct Reality”–and it’s related to gaming.

The trademark covers “computer game software,” and more interestingly, “computer software for holographic applications.” Additionally, it covers “online computer game software,” including holographic applications. The application was filed just days ago, on June 2.

Trademark application filings do not always lead to product announcements. For example, Activision registered things like Call of Duty: Future Warfare and Secret Warfare.

There is nothing more to go on regarding Direct Reality, though its name and how it’s connected to holographic applications suggests it may be related to Microsoft’s HoloLens technology.

We have contacted Microsoft in an attempt to get more details and will update this story with anything we hear back.

Microsoft’s Project Scorpio console will support virtual reality, but it remains to be seen how that will happen or if the console will work with HoloLens.

Microsoft E3 2017 briefing takes place on Sunday, June 11, starting at 2 PM PT. Keep checking back with GameSpot for the latest.

Hey everyone, I'm Jonathan but people will know me as Jon... I enjoy hiking and exploring the outside world as well as getting to see fantastic views. It can bring you to the most beautiful places on earth and into contact with amazing plants and wildlife and can be done all year round which is why I enjoy it so much despite it being challenging sometimes due to the weather - it has allowed me to meet a lot of new people and experience things I wouldn't have before. I also find it relaxing and interesting. I also really enjoy blogging and sharing my experiences with similar people. Hopefully you will read mine. My company Adventures Gate displays my other hobby - gaming! I love collecting items to do with gaming and playing in general. I guess I am a bit of a geek when it comes to this. Adventures Gate now offer free postage options when you spend more than £20 (there may be a small additional charge for larger items). That`s free 1st class post in the UK and free airmail to Europe.
