Obsidian TMs The Outer Worlds

Obsidian Entertainment has submitted a Trademark Filing for The Outer Worlds, which may be a hint at their next project. GameWatcher, who spotted this on the Official Obsidian Forums, note that this may be for a game based on an novel of the same name by E.J. Gilmour. They offer the following description of the novel from Amazon: "An alien invasion sweeps across the galaxy. The hope of humanity rests with an exile from an ancient empire and his loyal crew. They must work together to save the human race from imminent extinction. High adventure on a galactic scale."
