Halo, Destiny writer is penning Inafune's Xbox One exclusive ReCore


Cool, maybe?

Mega Man co-creator and crowdfunding enthusiast Keiji Inafune is the most prominent name attached to upcoming Xbox One exclusive ReCore, but the game is being written by former Bungie man Joseph Staten, The New York Times reveals in a recent piece about heroines in games.

ReCore follows the exploits of Joule, the last remaining person on the desert planet Far Eden, who must employ the help of robots to support her on a mission to revive the human race. 

"The male gender does not have the monopoly on heroism," Staten told The Times. "Joule is emblematic of this conviction, and we hope she's a character who stands strong and stands out in a market filled with male heroes."

Prior to now Staten was known to be working at Microsoft Studios on an unknown project since leaving Bungie in late 2013. While at Bungie, Staten served as the studio's director of cinematics, helped manage the Halo franchise's expanded universe and novelizations, wrote Halo 3: ODST, and worked on Destiny as lead writer and design director. 

ReCore is in development at Comcept and Armature Studios and planned for a spring 2016 launch.
