Joseph Staten has quit Bungie after 15 years at the studio, in order to take on new creative challenges. Staten was the Design Director on the upcoming Destiny.
During his time at Bungie, Staten also worked as the writer and director of the cinematics for Halos 1 and 2, as well as the creative director and writer on Halo 3: ODST.
“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,” Staten wrote on Bungie.net.
“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.”
Interesting one this. Should alarm bells be ringing? Destiny is due in early 2014 on Xbox One and Xbox 360.
