Bungie-linked company holds Destiny trademark

Thursday, 19th May 2011 23:16 GMT By Brenna Hillier

A new company associated with high-profile Bungie names and a an associated trademark filing have reignited speculation on Bungie’s rumoured Destiny project.

HBO turned up a company called Podophobia Entertainment, founded by Bungie leader Harold Ryan and Halo composer Martin O’Donnell.

By checking the company name against trademark listings, the site found a filing for Destiny, showing the logo above.

Podophobia is currently listed as inactive, but the Destiny trademark was renewed in March.

What makes all this particularly inflammatory is that this logo has reportedly been spotted in the wild, apparently gracing Bungie producer Jonty Barnes’ shirt during a Penny Arcade video.

Rumours gave Destiny as the name of Bungie’s secret project, described as “WoW in space”. This is at least the second trademark and spin-off company filed by Bungie in the last few months.

Bungie entered into a ten year publishing agreement with Activision following its departure from the Halo series.

Thanks, Joystiq.
