Additionally a lot of the time when a company returns to a franchise 20 years later it tends not to turn out well

I only played about five hours of it, but it seemed really smooth and polished and the enemy deaths are some of the most rewarding I've seen in games. Admittedly, there's a lot about their business model that I don't like, but the gameplay itself seemed pretty solid.

Marathon is boring, so I figure that in order for it to stand up on its own today it would need to just be weird as fuck, basic shooting with a premise and environment that compels me to keep playing to find out more.
Marathon scenarios can get away with using the old mechanics but I really don't think a modern game could, and don't compare a new Marathon IP to the recent DOOM because if it tries to beat DOOM it will fail miserably.

In addition there's games like Wolfenstein the New Order which I've heard is a pretty successful FPS in terms of storytelling and design. Plus some of the appeal of Dark Souls could apply to a Marathon remake, as well (in terms of tone/mood and in-between-the-lines storytelling).

I'd like to see another company, like Machine Games (who made the modern Wolfenstein games), take a shot at it. Their take on Wolf was really remarkable and memorable, they made a fantastic character out of BJ Blazkowicz, and it had fundamentally solid gameplay backing it up. Like, they understood what made Wolf 3D good back in 1992, but they also remembered that it wasn't 1992 anymore.
