A few months back Joseph Staten, writer and designer director on Destiny, surprised us with his unexpected departure from Bungie in order â€œto tackle new creative challenges.â€ Today, Xbox Studio Manager Mike Ybarra tweeted that Staten is now back at Microsoft serving as Senior Creative Director. Many speculated that this was his return to the Halo franchise, but Polygon reports that Staten isnâ€™t directly involved with the next Halo game.
Joseph is not working directly on the next Halo title. As a senior creative director, he will help create the world's best entertainment on Xbox, as well as help shape our franchise strategy for some Microsoft Studios titles.(Thanks, Mariachi and marmot 1333. And thanks to Frankie for the title.)
