Cinematic director Joe Staten, who did much of the writing for Bungie's Halo franchise, will be departing the studio. Staten also wrote the novel Contact Harvest, which covered the first contact between humans and the Covenant.
Staten wrote the following farewell:
Dear community friends,
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. 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.
Per Audacia Ad Astra!
