Prior to its recent release of Halo Infinite, Microsoft filed a US trademark application for 'Halo: The Endless'.
As spotted by Aggiornamenti Lumia on Twitter, Microsoft initially filed its application for Halo: The Endless on December 3 before it was then updated on December 7.
HALO: THE ENDLESS – Trademark Detailshttps://t.co/gMuFQPDM9S

Currently, very little is known about the trademark. A listing on trademark website Justia merely suggests that the trademark is tied to goods and services in the realm of video game software, which doesn't give much away. Further links within the trademark also appear to suggest ties between Halo: The Endless and other forms of entertainment media such as film, TV, and radio. Despite references to a number of formats within the trademark, this is far from a guarantee that Halo: The Endless will actually ever materialize into a product from within one of those categories.
While fans will have to see whether or not Microsoft has any solid plans for Halo: The Endless, the recent release of Halo: Infinite should offer plenty of content in the meantime. Halo Infinite's long-awaited launch took place yesterday. If you're one of the many fans currently heading into Infinite's campaign, make sure to check out our Halo wiki guide, which comes with its very own campaign walkthrough as well as a section fully dedicated to collectibles and other neat things from the game.
In other Halo news, Geoff Keighley recently revealed that that the first trailer for the long-awaited Halo TV series will be shown off tonight (December 9) during The Game Awards. The show is set to debut on Paramount Plus next year and will star Pablo Schreiber as Master Chief, with Danny Sapani and Olive Grey set to play Jacob and Miranda Keyes, respectively.
