Bungie studio President Harold Ryan has stepped down. Bungie’s board of directors announced long-time COO Pete Parsons will now take over as CEO.
Parsons posted the following statement on Bungie’s website:
“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.”
The most recent changes to Destiny was and update the matchmaking system to correct changes that were made previously. These mostly focused on lag experienced by players, hopefully the corrections still release in a timely manner after these changes.
