With the company having previously been at the helm of Halo and currently working on its MMO/FPS hybrid Destiny, Bungie has revealed that the company has a new leader with Bungie veteran Pete Parsons having now been appointed the new CEO.

Bungie announced this week that former head Harold Ryan has stepped down from the company’s lead role with Pete Parsons to take his place, having been with the studio since 2002. Parsons expressed his excitement at taking on the new role at Bungie in a statement on Bungie’s blog, detailing:

“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.”
Bungie’s most recent project, Destiny: The Taken King, was released last September for PS4, Xbox One, PS3, and Xbox 360 as the first major expansion for Destiny.
