Update: Apparently O’Donnell is only suing Bungie’s CEO, Harold Ryan, and not the whole Bungie company.
This is a headline you probably never wanted to read, but unfortunately it is true.
Legendary music composer Marty O’Donnell has filed a lawsuit against Bungie following his termination from the company this past April. The claim filed against Bungie and its chief executive, Harold Ryan, is in response to Bungie’s neglect to pay O’Donnell for things like paid time off, unpaid vacation time, and other instances.
O’Donnell was terminated “without cause” this past April which has had the Halo and Destiny community scrambling for answers. Until we actually know what happened (although we may never know), try not to point fingers at either Bungie or O’Donnell.
O’Donnell has been the heart and soul behind Bungie’s iconic game soundtracks since 1999. It’s a shame to see the two parties go their separate ways, but just try and remember the good times and not the bad.
