Joseph Staten, a veteran of the Halo series, has returned to the franchise. He will work on the campaign for the upcoming Halo infinite.
I will be supporting the team’s existing, great leaders and empowering them to do their best work,’ Staten says.
Halo infinite was planned to launch alongside the Xbox series X in November. But was delayed into next year following an underwhelming demonstration during Microsoft’s Xbox games showcase.
Staten’s appointment suggests that changes to Halo infinite may be significant. At Bungie, he wrote the scripts and directed the cutscenes for the first three Halo games. He was later a writer and creative director on destiny before leaving in 2013.
