Bungie has major egg on its face after a recent Destiny 2 cutscene was found to have copied fan art from a couple of years ago. Though the artist wasn’t actually upset about the situation when fans pointed it out, the studio acknowledged the error and promised to compensate the artist anyway, saying, “Bungie has reached out to ELEMENTJ21 about the art piece from this week’s cutscene and are planning to compensate and credit them for their work. We discovered that an external vendor that helped to create this cutscene mistakenly used this art as a reference, assuming it was official Bungie artwork. We are currently waiting to hear back from the artist to take the necessary steps to remedy this situation.”
