Bungie Reveals Marathon in Development; Nathan Fillion Reprises Role for Destiny 2

Now in the works. Bungie

Bungie has revealed that it's currently developing a new sci-fi extraction shooter game titled Marathon; the first new project from the studio in more than 10 years. No release date has been revealed but the game is going to be available on PC, PlayStation 5, and Xbox Series X/S, with full cross-save and cross-play.

Marathon is set in the planet known as Tau Ceti IV. In the game, players get to inhabit the bodies of Runners, cybernetic mercenaries designed to survive the harsh environments of the planet so they can explore the lost colony that once inhabited the planet's surface. They can play the game solo or in teams of three and look for mysterious alien artifacts along with valuable loot, new gear, and new weapons.

In a statement, Marathon General Manager Scott Taylor revealed that for the studio, the game is the beginning of an amazing journey. He added that it's inspired by the legendary history of the studio while pushing boldly toward the future. He went on to say that they took all of the lessons they learned from years of creating amazing worlds and placed them in a game which is nothing like the studio has ever made.

Marathon Game Director Christopher Barrett shared it's been incredible to watch the excitement and creativity surrounding the game even at this phase of the development. He said that they're committed to delivering a PvP-first gameplay experience full of tension and excitement.

Cayde-6 Returns

Aside from announcing the development of a new game, Bungie also revealed that Nathan Fillion is returning for his role of Cayde-6 in the Destiny Universe. This legendary hunter made a brief appearance in the teaser video of The Final Shape expansion for Destiny 2.

The Light and Darkness Saga in Destiny is about to come to its epic conclusion after a 10-year journey. Later this summer, the studio will show the first details of what fans can expect for the upcoming Destiny Showcase event this August 22. During the showcase, developers at Bungie are set to share insights into The Final Shape and offer a look forward into what's being planned in the future of Destiny 2.
