Halo, Destiny design director & writer leaves Bungie

Destiny's his child

Joseph Staten, who had been with Bungie for 15 years, announced his departure from the company in a goodbye post on its website.

After fifteen great years at Bungie, from the battlefields of Myth to the mysteries of Halo and beyond, I'm leaving to tackle new creative challenges. While this may come as a surprise, fear not. It's been my pleasure building Destiny these past four years, and after the big reveal this Summer, our hugely talented team is on track for greatness. I'll be cheering all of them, with all of you, when the game launches next year. Thank you for your support of me, and your continued support of Bungie. We couldn't have done it without you.

Staten is responsible for quite a bit of Halo, from the series' cinematic direction to the Halo novel Contact Harvest to the voice of the Grunts. Most recently, he had been serving as design director on Bungie's upcoming behemoth of a game, Destiny.

Steven watches anime & sports, buys meat out of trucks, dates a Muppet, and is only good at cooking. He stands before you bereft of solace and well on the road to perdition. ('^ω^) more
