Destiny developer Bungie has filed five different trademark applications with the United States Patent & Trademark Office (USPTO) for Glimmer, Fallen, Hive, Cabal, and Vex potentially related to the company's all-new "shared-world shooter" to be published by Activision.
The trademark applications, each filed March 11, cover a variety of uses. If the USPTO grants Bungie the trademarks, the developer will be able to use them to create and sell interactive game software, graphic novels, Halloween costumes, TV programs, ringtones, and footwear, among a long list of other items based on the names.
Cabal and Vex are the names of enemies in Destiny, and Fallen has previously been used in the game's marketing material. Glimmer and Hive have not been spoken of before with regards to Destiny.
A Bungie representative was not immediately available to comment.
Destiny is currently officially in development for Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and PlayStation 4, though Bungie's own preorder page suggests the game is also coming to Wii U, PC, PlayStation Vita, and the Xbox 720.
