343 Industries, the keepers of all things Halo has had a bit of a shuffle in the upper sections of the developer.
Former creative director Josh Holmes is now Executive Producer according to a post on Halo Waypoint.
Replacing Holmes as Creative Director is Tim Longo. Longo previously worked on Tomb Raider, Star Wars: Republic Commando and the unreleased first-person shooter Star Wars: First Assault.
Ex-Executive Producer with the coolest name in gaming, Kiki Wolfkill is still at 343 Industries, but is developing “exciting new stories, experiences and technologies that will transform the way that you experience Halo”.
Art director Kenneth Scott has moved to California (the studio is based in Redmond, Washington), and has become visual design consultant, working remotely. Replacing him is Nicolas “Sparth” Bouvier, who moves up from the lead concept artist position.
Meanwhile, in related news, veteran Bungie member, Joe Staten has returned to Microsoft Studios. Those not familiar with his work, Staten was the original writer of Bungie’s Halo games (and voice of the grunts). He is now Senior Creative Director at Microsoft Studios, although he’s not working directly on Halo.
