The lights are on
After his termination
from and subsequent
lawsuit against Bungie, Marty O'Donnell has helped to establish a new development studio.
The name of the studio is Highwire Games, and in addition to O'Donnell includes the
talent of former Bungie designer Jaime Griesemer and Airtight Games co-founder
Jared Noftle. NeoGAF picked up on the news when a fan tweeted
a photo of O'Donnell's new business card, and quickly dug up an additional LinkedIn page and alleged website.
O'Donnell has since
confirmed the studio and Greisemer and Noftle's involvement.
No other information is known, but the LinkedIn page for
Highwire Games lists the company size as between 1-10 employees, and that it
specializes in games, consoles, and virtual reality.
