Halo composer awarded settlement against in suit against former employer Bungie

Posted on July 22, 2014 AT 10:58am

Former Bungie composer Martin O’Donnell’s lawsuit against his former employer has settled in his favor, GamesBeat reports.

After his April 11 termination earlier this year, which O’Donnell cited was “without case,” he filed suit against Bungie on May 1 over accrued unused vacation time, paid time off, and other benefits that he never received. With the lawsuit settled, O’Donnell is set to receive—after attorney’s fees and interests—$95,019.13 from Bungie and the company’s chief executive Harold Ryan.

It remains unclear, however—and probably NDA’d to high heaven—what the circumstances surrounding O’Donnell’s termination were. The composer’s last project with the studio, Destiny, will ship September 9 with a soundtrack scored by the man behind Halo’s tunes and in collaboration with Michael Salvatori and Paul McCartney.
