Eurogamer is reporting that Bungie President Harold Ryan has left the company and ties it to last week's announcement that Destiny 2 would be delayed. Pete Parsons will be taking on the role of interim CEO.
Bungie issued a statement saying:
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.
Here are a few words from Pete:
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.
This is yet another new beginning, and a new challenge for our studio. We remain committed to creating great experiences in Destiny.
