New evidence has come to light adding credence to reports earlier this year that former Halo studio Bungie is working on an MMO called Destiny.

As reported by, a company called Podophobia Entertainment set up by two Bungie employees Harold Ryan and Martin O'Donnell filed a trademark for something called Destiny in 2009, and renewed it in March this year.

The listing describes it as "computer game software downloadable from a global computer network." Also included is a logo, which you can see below.

The report notes that a NeoGAF poster spotted the same design on a T-shirt worn by a Bungie employee during a recent Penny Arcade video.

Podophobia has also trademarked 'Be Brave', with a near identical product description.

Speculation that Bungie's new franchise for Activision is called Destiny dates back to February when a laid-off contractor leaked the alleged name to Kotaku, describing it in crude terms as "WOW in space".
