Back in April, the game development studio Bungie fired Marty O’Donnell from his position as audio director. It was reported at the time, and stated by O’Donnell, that he had been terminated “without cause.” It now appears that this matter is not going to end quietly. Before being fired by Bungie, O’Donnell was working on Bungie’s upcoming and highly anticipated game Destiny. Many people are no doubt familiar with the composer’s work on the original Halo soundtrack.

According to a report from VentureBeat, a suit was filled against Bungie and its chief executive, Harold Ryan, by O’Donnell back on May 1st. In the suit he claims that Bungie failed to pay him for several benefits, including paid time off and unpaid vacation time. As of May 27, Bungie has denied that O’Donnell is due any compensation.

O’Donnell is also pursuing claims of additional grievances against the company and Harold Ryan, which have not been revealed at this time. We will update on this once more information becomes available.
