A few months back Joseph Staten, writer and designer director on Destiny, surprised us with his unexpected departure from Bungie in order “to tackle new creative challenges.” 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 isn’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.)

Another Great Journey

If you didn't already catch it on Bungie.Net, Joseph Staten, a creator, writer, designer, and voice actor every Bungie fan should know, whose excitement and creativity has inspired us for years now, is leaving Bungie for a new adventure. But through those teary eyes, just remember: we still have years of his contributions to Destiny to yet experience! And personally, I can't wait to see what else he accomplishes...

Putting Bullets on a Pixel

vex.pngCreative Screenwriting has posted an interview they did with Bungie writer Joseph Staten during E3. It's pretty short and covers much of the same ground as previously posted E3 chats, but Joe has a way with words that makes every conversation sound fresh and exciting. (Thanks, marmot 1333.)

Hello, Traveler!


Edge has another preview from their (now available) Destiny-rich issue, this time focusing on what Bungie learned from open-world shooters Far Cry and Borderlands. Joe Staten uses a more respectful tone than the Edge headline would have you believe, but he does mention Bungie's efforts to capitalize on the opportunities those games passed up. As a fan of Borderlands, I think this is very encouraging news! (Thanks, Xenos.)

GameSpot Interview with Joe Staten

GameSpot sat down with Joe Staten today and talked to him about Destiny while running through the E3 demo. There are some great pieces of information in there, but this gem at the very beginning (when the camera is panning across the landscape) will be of particular interest to many fans,

This is all coming right out our engine. All that stuff, if you ran out there, it's all playable terrain. I mean, it's just a really powerful new engine that we've [built for Destiny].

GDC Interview at AusGamers

It's a few weeks later than others, but has posted their GDC interview with Christopher Barrett and Joseph Staten today. While it touches on many elements we've already heard about in other GDC interviews, they certainly cover a few fresh angles that make it an interesting read.
