A Goodbye - Sort of
Posted By: Nathan <nathan@bungie.com>Date: 10/20/99 10:39 a.m.

Dear Bungie Fans and other Forum readers,

This letter has been very difficult to write and itís taken me a long time just to try to get a first sentence that sounds right. So, instead of painstakingly going over the details, Iím just going to write with (for Rob: RECKLESS ABANDON LIKE I DID MANY MOONS AGO :).

It is with some sadness that I write to tell you that Friday, October 22, will be my last day working for Bungie. I have received an opportunity to finish my schooling at the University of North Carolina, where I will be allowed to write an honors thesis and (assuming itís impressive enough ;), graduate with high honors. In the coming week, Iíll be tying up some loose ends, cleaning up, and saying goodbye.

When I rejoin the forums this weekend or next Monday, it will be as a fan - just like you. I am no longer Producer or Creative Developer and am no longer a representative of Bungie Software. This is important to note if you continue writing to me.

This has been the greatest company I have ever worked for, with the most talented and nicest group of people I have had the pleasure of knowing as co-workers. I have only good memories of all thatís happened at Bungie Ö and it is because of the people that I worked with and the products that we made together. This company is surging ahead with three incredible projects in the wings Ö and I wish ALL of them and all of YOU the best of luck.

I am thrilled to have had the opportunity to work at such a place, will surely miss Bungie, and I know that they will contine to produce only the highest-quality games Ė period.

For now, my email address will remain the same and I can be reached there. I am sure to have a free email account for a while which I will post under until I have full internet service in my name. And within a couple months, you will see my UNC address resurface. I will likely leave for North Carolina in early January or late December. I will stay in touch. Don't worry. ;)

And now I'll be able to speak my mind a little more freely about your debates. Please understand that I will NOT be able to give you any more information about Halo than I could before. I am in a position similar to Tyson over at the Core.

Thanks for all your input. Rest assured that you have been heard and WILL CONTINUE to be heard. I have made a very strong point in emphasizing that communicating with our fans and consumers is a critical element to our production. Bungie will not forget this. I'll be sure to harass them endlessly if they do. ;)

I will be here just as often, if not more - just remember that I'm not here in the same capacity.

I look forward to some more spirited debates now. ;-)

Thanks for being such wonderful fans.

Sincerely,

Nathan Bitner
Bungie Software (until Midnight Friday, October 22 :)
