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. 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.
 
Here are a few words from the man himself.
 
 

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!
Joseph Staten
 
It’s been an honor serving with you, Joseph. Thank you for everything.

 

 

This is a very sad day indeed, wish you all the best. Looking forward to whatever you have to bring next.

Yeah. I can't see any way in which this is a good thing.

 

Of course, it's not necessarily a bad thing either. It may simply be that he got an irresistably good offer somewhere else. Probably off to write for Cliffy B's new project ;)

Maybe they'll replace him with a guy who will tell us the release date...

Or they could replace with a guy that could delay the project because he doesnt like where its going.
