Halo Infinite Creative Director Departs 343 Industries
There were quite a few new game announcements made at E3 this past June, but for Xbox loyalists, none was more exciting than the latest trailer for Halo Infinite. With the last core entry in the series, Halo 5, releasing in 2015, Master Chief has long been overdue for his return. Halo Infinite is planned to be something of a spiritual reboot for the series, as is hinted by not naming it Halo 6. With the project being in the works for such a long time, it would make sense for changes behind the scenes to occur, as has now been evidenced by the confirmed departure of the Halo Infinite creative director from 343 Industries.
Kotaku recently shared the report given to them by Microsoft regarding Halo Infinite Creative Director Tim Longo. Apparently, Longo was moved to a different position just a few weeks ago, but just this past week chose to leave the company completely. Longo also served as the creative director for Halo 5, and previously worked on games like Tomb Raider and Star Wars: Republic Commando. Longo has not yet disclosed if he has secured a new position elsewhere.
In addition to this change, Executive Producer Mary Olson will now be the lead producer for the Campaign Team on the game, and Studio Head Chris Lee will remain at the helm of the game’s creative and production activities. While these are significant changes, Microsoft has assured fans that these will not affect the game’s projected release window of Holiday 2020. Thankfully, Master Chief will not have to stay in cryogenic slumber any longer than he has to. What do you guys think about the Halo Infinite creative director leaving 343 Industries?
