Halo Infinite Creative Director Leaves 343 Studios

As reported by Kotaku, Halo Infinite’s Creative Director is leaving 343 Studios.

Tim Longo left the company last week, according to two people who are “familiar with the goings-on at 343.” Kotaku reached out to Microsoft regarding Longo’s departure, with Microsoft providing the following statement.

“Roles and responsibilities of various team members regularly evolve to meet the needs of a game, throughout development. We have recently had two changes to the Halo Infinite development team. Our Executive Producer, Mary Olson will now take charge of the Campaign team on Halo Infinite as the Lead Producer, utilizing her many years of experience at 343 to help craft a great campaign for fans.

Additionally, Tim Longo has recently departed our team and we are truly thankful for his many contributions to our games, our studio and the Halo universe. We wish Tim nothing but the best in his future endeavors.

The overall creative vision and production of the game remains led by Chris Lee, Studio Head of Halo Infinite.

We have a world-class team building Halo Infinite and the overwhelming positive response by fans has us energized, more than ever, to create the best Halo game to date, alongside Project Scarlett in holiday 2020. These changes have no impact to the release date for Halo Infinite.”

Halo Infinite is set to launch on Project Scarlett, Xbox One, and PC next holiday when Project Scarlett is set to ship.
