Hats off to Supererogatory for finding this one. Earlier this July, Bungie managed to stealthily copyright four phrases--Seven Seraphs, Osiris, New Monarchy, and Dead Orbit--under “artwork” with the US copyright office, and enlisted a third party to register three Web domains for each. The implication here is that one or all of these are connected with Bungie’s forthcoming project with Activision, which is still a secret. But they could also mean nothing. Trademarks and the like are funny like that. 
 
The artwork description, by the way, doesn’t necessarily count out the chance that one of these phrases is the name of Bungie’s new game.  As Joystiq points out, artwork copyrights can be used with “all sorts of promotional and marketing, like logos."

Woo random words that are trademarked and possible related to games that we don't even really know exist yet (to an extent).

Dead orbit is really the only one that jumps out to me, maybe thats just because it reminds me of dead space. 
Osiris sounds like the most bungie name to me

Fuck. Now we have to sit through months, if not years, of countless speculation and rumors. Yay for the industry.

@Three0neFive: haha, sorry I couldn't resist. If it makes you feel better, I wish they were making a Stargate game. They'd probably make a good one.

Isn't there already a Stargate MMO in the works or was that canned?

What?  A Bungie Stargate game?  Great!  Tell me more!

@Lydian_Sel: Sadly, CME went bankrupt and is now in the process of attempting to recoup their losses and win back the license. I doubt any of that will happen and I expect the MMO will never see the light of day. 
 
All I can tell you about that is I know (don't ask, NDA wont allow me to tell you more) it was no where close to ready when development stopped. In fairness they did release a multiplayer FPS, Stargate Resistance but having lost the license my understanding is it is currently offline (i don't know, i haven't played it- I'm kind of mad at CME).

Dead Orbit.  Halo meets Dead Space.  Zombie Master Chiefs have taken over a derelict space mining operation that hasn't responded to broadcasts in quite some time.  You have to investigate - intense startling ensues - but don't startle too much, because your shields regenerate.

Alternative universe high tech / religion RPG?

I feel so torn apart. On one side I want them to make another space shooter franchise because they haveproved to be able to create fantastic universes for such (Marathon and Halo) but on the other side I want them to do something else. Maybe something else would be good for them and I hope that Activision will give them at least SOME creative freedom.

'Seven Seraphs' sound the best game title to me.  'New Monarchy' could maybe a game title that grows on you depending on the game.

Dead Orbit - it's Dead Space in circles, like a Halo?! Physics class fail part two. Target market: reached!

@ManMadeGod: Yeah I never meant literally a new halo game but another space fps.  I would like to see them do something different and new....:)

@Winternet: Sort of the vibe I was getting.  Moreso, a Planescape: Torment type of world came to mind, but I'm glad Bungie is (hopefully) trying something new here.  A lot of words pointing to possible after-life, celestial images.  We'll see, but I'm game if these are legitimate considerations Bungie is making.

Halo: Dead Orbit? 
 
 Set 100s of years in the future, it is the story of a ship, Osiris, that mysteriously loses power after flying through an electrical storm. They are stranded with no radio contact and must survive until a rescue ship comes for them. After weeks of eating only rations, they see a ship approaching, but rather then being the rescue party, it is a new covenant group, called the New Monarchy, coming to steal the high tech weapons on board Osiris.
