Former Bungie Employee to Form New Company
8:06 AM | Max Dyckhoff | Comment on this story
The Marathon Story Page received an eMail from one Nathan Bitner, former Producer and Creative Director for Halo from Bungie Software, this morning stating that he was in the process of setting up a new games company.
The name of the company is currently unoffical, as it is awaiting copyright information from his lawyer, however he is currently operating under the code name Island Four.
In his press release he states that :
I believe this software company, already loaded with several expert and published writers, will move gaming - and perhaps reading - in a direction that it has never taken. I have secured writers because I believe them to be an equally important creative force in this business as are artists and programmers.
I hope to use both my previous experience as a Producer, Creative Developer, and Level Designer, as well as the contacts I have already made within the industry (especially since I have left Bungie Software Products Corporation).
Bungie's people, products, and personality were and are spectacular and I choose to emulate that type of outlook, rather than alienate it. The most important part of anyone's job is quite simple: to have fun.
Island Four press release
Nathan was a prominent member in the Bungie community before, during and after his time at Bungie Software, and it is expected that "Island Four" will release bi- or even multi-platform software.
