Destiny lead writer Joseph Staten has left Bungie.
In a post on the studio’s official site, Staten posted the following statement:
“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.”
“At Bungie, we consider ourselves lucky. Every day, we get to do what we love in an amazing place, alongside people we respect and admire. No one embodies that more than Joseph Staten,” Bungie wrote in a separate statement. “Few have contributed as much to our success. To that end, it is with no small degree of sadness that we say “Godspeed” to more than just a Grizzled Ancient, but an old, dear friend. And it is with no small degree of delight and intrigue that we imagine what worlds he might take us to next. It’s been an honor serving with you, Joseph. Thank you for everything.”
Bungie has yet to announce who will be taking on Staten's responsibilities, but we've reached out for more info and will update this story with any comment we receive.
