While Bungie is trying to keep its head down and focus on development of its Destiny sequel, a management reshuffle has thrust the company's operations back into the spotlight. After more than 15 years at the studio, president Harold Ryan has stepped down. Long-time COO Pete Parsons has been chosen to lead the company forward, but will do so as Bungie's new chief.

In a short statement, Parsons wasted no time in addressing Destiny fans: "I want you to know my number one priority, and Bungie's, is and always has been to deliver great games that we can all share together," he says. "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."

After an unconfirmed Kotaku report claimed that Destiny's next instalment has been pushed back from its September launch and the recent rollback on matchmaking changes to fix multiplayer lag, Parsons is understandably focusing on placating frustrated players. There's currently no word on whether Ryan will remain at the company now that he's left his post, but we have contacted Bungie to find out what will happen next.
