Bungie Ordered to Return Marty O'Donnell Stock After Firing

Posted on Wednesday, August 20 @ 12:00:00 PST by


Legal proceedings surrounding the firing of Halo composer Marty O'Donnell have led to little explanation for the move though reports now suggest that developer Bungie has been instructed to return stock holdings.

While work on Destiny continues until the game's release on September 9th, 2014, arbitration on O'Donnell's claims against Bungie has ruled in O'Donnell's favor. According the report by VentureBeat.com, "a preliminary injunction [said ] that Bungie erred when it stripped music and audio chief Marty O'Donnell of his founders' shares in the game studio...."
For O'Donnell, a great deal was at stake in establishing his ownership of Bungie stock. His music is etched in the minds of countless gamers, and O'Donnell also created the music for the upcoming Destiny game series, which Activision has said it will spend $500 million promoting over the course of a decade.
