Trending: Amazon and Seattle’s NBA dreams: Steve Ballmer on the city’s prospects for bringing back the Sonics

Is Bungie the new Boeing? Probably not. But the company behind the blockbuster “Halo” games for Microsoft’s Xbox appears to be having some fun at the expense of video-game geeks, or planning a new game somehow related to aerospace. Or maybe both.

A posting on fan site over the weekend noted the recent registration of a new “Bungie Aerospace Corporation” in the Washington state corporations filings. The registration lists Bungie’s Bellevue HQ as its address, with Ondraus Jenkins and Harold Ryan (misspelled Harlod Ryan) among the governing persons, along with “Allan Parsons.”

As Jostiq notes, that could be a joke referring to the Alan Parsons Project or a pseudonym for Bungie veteran Pete Parsons, or a reference to someone else entirely.

The latest filing follows a similar corporation registration in Delaware, and an earlier Bungie Aerospace trademark filing (which generated the image above). We’ve reached out to Bungie to find out more about its plans for the brand, if it is one, but we aren’t holding our breath.

Bungie, which was previously spun out of Microsoft as an independent studio, is working with Activision on a new game franchise, the details of which haven’t yet been announced.
