    Halo veteran returns to Microsoft to build "incredible entertainment"

    After quitting Bungie Studios at the end of September 2013, Halo and Destiny universe co-creator Joseph Staten has returned to Microsoft. His new post is senior creative director, and he joins the Xbox team to help create "incredible entertainment," according to his LinkedIn page.

    Staten is a prolific Halo writer, having written for every game in the series developed by Bungie. He also served as creative director for Peter Jackson's Halo film (which would later fall apart) and authored the New York Times bestseller Halo: Contact Harvest.

    Staten's current Xbox project at Microsoft is unknown.
    It is possible that he's working on one of Microsoft's numerous unannounced Xbox One projects, or even potentially the new Halo game. He did, after all co-create the Halo universe, making him a likely candidate to guide its future.

    that's a good guess. 1) it's one guy. 2) he's a writer. 3) MS already mentioned a Halo TV series.

    i, for one, would love that. as long as it's nothing like the storyline they had in the game. if they made a more casual story (not all epic like star wars and crap), i might get into that. i liked red vs blue but that's not a real show.

    it's kind of sad that Halo creators never really made a true tribute to Halo 1. That was such a great and even after the recognition it received, i think it was still underrated because of how popular the later games still were. granted i didn't play anything after 2, i didn't exactly hear much about the campaign in the rest of them and i did watch 3 and it looked kinda bleh. the original bungie people need to make a game like that again, a new IP but something like that and no i don't like destiny.
