Bungie, the renowned game developer, has announced that it is currently working on a new science fiction shooter game, “Marathon,” which is set to be released on PS5, Xbox Series X/S, and PC. Fans of the Halo game series, which was also created by Bungie, are eager to see the studio’s first completely new project in over a decade. The company has revealed that this new game will feature full cross-play and cross-save, making it easier for players to get together, no matter which platform they are using.
Marathon will be a high-paced action-packed sci-fi PvP extraction shooter, where players will take the role of cybernetic mercenaries, called Runners, fighting against each other while exploring a lost colony on the planet Tau Ceti IV in search of riches, fame, and infamy.
Brian Ekberg, Bungie’s editorial lead, shared his insights on the PlayStation Blog, revealing that Marathon is not a direct sequel to any of the previous Marathon titles but rather will be part of the same universe, containing the same mythology, story, and themes of the world. The game will be a nod to the universe’s lore while also being something new and different, something “that feels like a Bungie game.”
Bungie released three Marathon titles in the 1990s before creating hit franchises like Halo and Destiny, among others. Scott Taylor, Marathon’s general manager, mentions that “There’s still a lot of work to do before launch or even before we’re ready to talk about the game in more detail. The team is hard at work, and we’ve got a great base to start from, but there is still so much more to do, including continuing to grow our team.’
Tom Ivan, a gaming journalist, reports that the new game will feature full cross-play and cross-save, which is excellent news for players and has already sparked interest among gaming enthusiasts.
In conclusion, Marathon is set to be an exciting and much-anticipated game, and while there is still plenty of work to be done before release and before the developer reveals full details about the game’s features and more, there is no doubt that this will be yet another epic game added to the Bungie game franchise.
