Future 2 developer Bungie seems to have filed a trademark for ‘BungieCon‘, prompting hypothesis that the studio is planning one thing massive.

In keeping with a brand new itemizing revealed over at Trademark247 (no relation to VG247, we guarantee you), it appears like Bungie has utilized for the time period ‘BungieCon’ to be trademarked (thanks, Resetera).

There’s loads happening within the description for the trademark – together with a subject for jewellery, curiously sufficient – however for probably the most half, it appears the submitting will relate to media and merchandise ‘within the fields of video video games, science fiction, fantasy and action-adventure tales’. None of that ought to be too shocking if you happen to’re acquainted with the hero-focused sci-fi tales Bungie likes to work with.

Bungie, the unique creator of Halo and developer behind the Future sequence, not too long ago introduced plans to double the dimensions of its US headquarters and open a brand new workplace in Europe as a part of an enormous growth, too. Wanting into the small print of the deliberate growth serves to elucidate why the studio could wish to host an occasion like BungieCon sooner or later.

This newly enlarged workplace area will “assist a number of venture groups, together with these exterior of the Future Universe” and the European department of the corporate can even assist information ‘further media’ throughout the Future model. Furthermore, Bungie is intent on getting its first non-Future IP out the door “earlier than 2025”, and that’s very more likely to be the whimsical loot recreation which will or is probably not known as Matter.

Does this imply we are able to anticipate to see a giant (probably multi-day) on-line and in-person conference happen within the coming years, designed to spotlight new video games and experiences primarily based on Bungie IP? It definitely appears possible.

Once you’re an organization with a number of studios working below one umbrella, this sort-of consumer-focused occasion may be very profitable in constructing hype and offering a spot for communities to work together (and might make a tidy revenue within the course of). Simply ask Blizzard and Sq. Enix, whose respective BlizzCon and Remaining Fantasy 14 Fan Fest occasions show in style and enduring each in-person and on-line.
