Harold Ryan has stepped down as CEO of Bungie today, and Pete Parsons has been appointed as the new CEO. Pete issued a short statement about the change:
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 Bungieâ€™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 studioâ€™s best work. My new role here at the studio will be entirely focused on fulfilling that promise.
Congratulations to Pete! No word if Harold will be staying with Bungie.
Nowgamer published an interview with Harold Ryan, president of Bungie, about next generation technology, MMOs and crafting the world of Destiny. There is a particularly interesting statement about giving players a sense of influence and impact in a shared world.
There will be a huge set of discussions to have about the activities you can engage in in Destiny. The designers have the ability to make something an activity that you play through, and they control the frequency that you can play through it, whether you play through it once or multiple times, and they control whether you play it with two or three friends or whether you play it in a public space, where you might encounter it every time you land on Venus as you go through.Go read!
