Bungie Returning Shares to O'Donnell
Filed under: BUNGIE, MARTIN O'DONNELL


A few months ago we've learned that composer Martin O'Donnell sued developer Bungie over unpaid benefits and subsequently won a legal battle. When he settled the lawsuit, it was announced that O'Donnell will get $95,000.

Venturebeat reports that when the composer left Bungie they also took his founders' shares, and now a judge has allowed O'Donnell a preliminary injunction for his stock.

Bungie, on the other hand, are now saying that when the composer's shares are restored, that he would be a "bothersome presence at board meetings and in the company." Regardless, the court has decided on the matter.

Back when he left the company, Bungie told EG "At Bungie we don't take that kind of thing lightly. We don't make those decisions lightly. We're a team that's committed to making an amazing game set in an amazing universe. At this time we won't be commenting any further on it."

I'm quickly losing all respect for Bungie; are they even the same people that programmed Myth, Marathon, or Oni?
