Releases[]

Marathon 2 was originally released for the Macintosh, and the next year ported to Windows. It was subsequently released for the failed Apple/Bandai Pippin console as a 2-in-1 pack with the previous game, under the title Super Marathon. The series was re-released in 1997 as Marathon Trilogy Box Set.

After Bungie was acquired by Microsoft, they made the Marathon series open-source and freely distributable, which led to fan-made ports and technical improvements.

In 2007 Marathon 2 was ported by Freeverse Software for the Xbox 360 console, with improved graphics.
