Marathon is the new game from Destiny creators Bungie

Bungie surprised Destiny fans by announcing the revival of a classic sci-fi shooter, Marathon, at the 2023 PlayStation Showcase.

Bungie established its legendary reputation by creating Halo: Combat evolved as a launch title for the original Xbox. The development team then split from Microsoft, relinquished its control over the Halo franchise, and embarked on its ambitious project.

Destiny took over gaming in 2014, and the sequel built off a strong foundation. Destiny 2 still boasts an incredibly strong fan base and regularly receives updates.

Before Destiny and even Halo, Bungie released Marathon in 1994; a first-person shooter that would go on to be a trilogy.
