Doom Eternal Composer Cites Unpaid Wages & Abuse For Why He Left id Software Two Years Ago

Doom Eternal composer Mick Gordon parted ways with Doom developer id Software back in 2020. After two years, Gordon is finally speaking out and giving his side of the controversy.

In a lengthy post on Medium, Gordon gives his full statement on the matter, in which he claims that id Software Studio Director Marty Stratton lied about the circumstances of his leaving over two years ago. The gist of it is that he was not paid or compensated for his work and was forced to engage in crunch to complete his work.

He also said that he only discovered after the game was released that id Software had used nearly all the music he produced throughout development, almost five hours worth, while only paying for half of it.

Gordon ends his lengthy post by saying:

Marty Stratton has put me in a position where the only step I can take to repair my reputation is with a public response. It is a defence, not an unprovoked attack, published as a last resort and with extreme reluctance only after every other avenue to reach a mutually agreeable resolution has failed.

I have given Marty ample opportunity to correct the false accusations he made against me, and all I’ve asked for is the truth and to be paid for my work. Stubborn refusal to address his Reddit post, out of fear for his image, has crippled Marty’s ability to offer anything but a gag order.

Marty seems to think so little of me that I’d give up my right to tell the truth and willingly accept the long-term mental health implications of publicly taking the blame for the situation in exchange for money. I can’t agree to protect him from the reality of what happened. The truth is more important, and signing a gag order would remove my ability to defend myself with the facts.

The only thing left to do is issue this public response.

I never quit DOOM. I quit a toxic client.
