Destiny decider Bungie is here to pay for and provide proper credit to an artist whose work was used in a new cutscene.
PC Gamer reports that the changes were made after developer Julian Faylona (ElementJ21) took to Twitter to discuss the similarities between their artwork and a scene from the game.
The artist told the magazine, “It was completely unexpected and caught me by surprise. So much so that I felt the need to announce it.
Bungie blamed the error on a worry from a third party vendor.
A representative for Bungie said in a statement provided to PC Gamer, “Bungie has actually connected to [ElementJ21] about the art piece from today’s cutscene and are preparing to compensate and credit them for their work.”
We discovered that a third-party vendor who contributed to the creation of this cutscene mistakenly used this artwork as a reference, thinking it was official Bungie creation. We have reached out to the artist and are awaiting a response before taking any further action.
