Destiny Court Document Shows Five Codenamed Projects In The Works From Bungie

Yesterday, Bungie composer Marty O'Donnell resolved a lawsuit with his former employer, and with it came public documents detailing the case. In it, five projects with release dates are outlined for release through 2020.

In the establishing background portion of the Marty O'Donnell v. Bungie, Harold Ryan case court document, it outlines some broad details about Bungie's contract with Acitivision – details we were already aware of.

In 2010, Bungie entered into a ten-year development and marketing agreement with publisher Activision Publishing, Inc. to fund development of Bungie's new first-person shooter video game that later became Destiny. The agreement anticipated the issuance of multiple episode of the game over a period of ten years. The first game was scheduled for release in September 2013. Destiny is Bungie's most significant game franchise in development. Activision's development advances for Destiny have been a significant source of Bungie's income. Currently Bungie plans to issue additional episode of Destiny.

Reader Discussion: Who Would Win In A Race? Witcher's Roach Or Metal Gear's D-Horse?

about X hours ago from

It's the most important and compelling question of 2015.

Two open-world games featuring two warriors, each with an injury around their eye, and each with a horse. Which one is faster? Which one is better? Which one has a better name?

I haven't played enough of either to make a final decision, but I will point out that D-Horse is a horse that can parachute into the battlefield. Just make sure you keep that in mind while deliberating.

Bethesda Completes Recording Of Fallout 4's 111,000 Lines Of Dialogue

According to Bethesda, there is more dialogue in Fallout 4 than Skyrim and Fallout 3 combined and it has taken years.

Many years of #Fallout4 voice recording complete! Just over 111k lines. More than Fallout 3 and Skyrim combined. pic.twitter.com/hwNu2GNg5m

It's a small update from Bethesda about Fallout 4, but it's interesting. It could also be considered an indicator that development is moving along smoothly. Big last second changes often mean changing dialogue and story, so if that's all done, then it's probably a good sign.

Destiny Composer Marty O’Donnell Wins Case With Bungie, Full Conflict Detailed In Court Documents

about X hours ago from

Former Bungie composer Marty O'Donnell settled one of his lawsuits with his former employer last year, but a separate lawsuit with Bungie was recently settled in O'Donnell's favor.

For some background, O'Donnell, known for his music composition work on the Halo and Destiny series, was fired from Bungie in April 2014 "without cause." In June of last year, O'Donnell sued Bungie president, Harold Ryan over unpaid benefits. The following month, that case was settled with more than $95,000 awarded to O'Donnell. It did not, however, settle O'Donnell's ongoing conflict with the studio. That lawsuit was settled in arbitration this week, and the court documents reveal the full story of the disagreement. In arbitration, lawsuits are settled outside of court by a judge without a jury present, but the results are legally binding.

This lawsuit in particular is related to O'Donnell's stock shares in the company and establishing that he should be considered a Bungie founder, which the arbitrator did find in O'Donnell's fair. This rulings allows him to hold on to company shares as a founder, even though he is no longer employed by Bungie.
