Metal Gear Solid 4 producer and Kojima Productions alumni Ryan Payton is rumored to have been snapped up by Microsoft to work on the fabled Halo Chronicles.

According to The Beautiful One, Payton is to be the creative director for Chronicles. The source of this Rumortoid is, of course, anonymous and mysterious, which means that we'll have to wait for any official announcements before we get too excited. 

Chronicles is a project spearheaded by film director Peter Jackson and his Wingnut Interactive studio, in association with Bungie. It has been billed as an upcoming episodic game set in Halo's universe. 

Payton was seen as a huge influence on Metal Gear Solid 4 and became a regular name in the media, so it was inevitable that he'd find himself a high profile job in the industry after leaving Kojima. The Halo franchise is as high profile as it gets.
