Eurogamer are saying Bungie have filed for trademark of the name "Marathon", which given their FPS pedigree, is likely to mean we might be seeing an update to their Mac-released (later Xbox Live Arcade-released) Marathon: Durandal.

If you never played it, the game was a very odd FPS released while Doom reigned supreme on the PC platform; as something of a Mac offering, though like Apple's machines, it didn't quite *look* the norm.

Either way, this is good news for those of us happy to see Halo finally put to rest and Bungie put to work elsewhere.

The Marathon Trilogy is a science fiction series of first-person shooter computer games from Bungie, originally released for the Macintosh. The name Marathon is derived from the fictional giant interstellar colony ship that provides the setting for the first game; the ship is constructed out of what used to be the Martian satellite Deimos. The three games in the series—Marathon (1994), Marathon 2: Durandal (1995), and Marathon Infinity (1996)—are widely regarded as spiritual predecessors of Bungie's Halo trilogy.

The trilogy is set in the same universe as Bungie's Pathways Into Darkness and Halo titles.


not exactly putting it to rest then are they?
