In a surprising turn of events, the President of Bungie, Harold Ryan, has stepped down from his duties for the company.
This was revealed via the Bungie website, which noted not only the departure, but the fulfilling of his role:
“Today, Bungie’s Board of Directors announced that it has appointed Pete Parsons to the role of Chief Executive Officer, and that Harold Ryan will be stepping down from his position as studio President. As CEO, Parsons will be tasked with leading the talented Bungie team as they continue to develop great Destiny experiences.”
Harold had this to say about his departure:
“I want to personally thank Harold for his friendship, passion, hard work, and dedication in helping make Bungie the great company it is today. As a team, we celebrated many victories and weathered many storms.
To the players of Destiny, I want you to know that my number one priority, and Bungie’s, is and always has been to deliver great games that we can all share together. I believe that Destiny is a one-of-a-kind experience. I also believe you have yet to see our studio’s best work. My new role here at the studio will be entirely focused on fulfilling that promise.”
Bungie has stated that all plans for Destiny have not been affected.
