Tim Longo, the creative director responsible for Halo endless, ha left the project is 343 industries this week according to Kotaku and confirmed by Microsoft.
Apparently, the exit from the stage of Tim Longo from 343 Industries and his role as creative director of Halo Infinite is part of a change at the top of the business that is coming in very late development, though there is still a good deal of time ahead for the launch of the game scheduled for fall 2020 .
Longo was also creative director of Halo 5: Guardians and had moved into a rather different role a few weeks ago, only to give up completely 343 Industries in these days. Microsoft confirmed the issue to Kotaku, explaining that "the roles and responsibilities of various team members evolve regularly to meet the needs of a game through development. We recently had two changes to the Halo Infinite development team," he said. Microsoft explained. "Our executive producer, Mary Olson, will now lead the Halo Infinite Campaign team as a leading producer and use her many years of experience in 343 to help build a great campaign. Tim Longo recently left our team and we are very grateful to him for his contributions to our games, our studio and the Halo universe. We wish Tim only the best for his future commitments. "
So according to reports from Microsoft, it falls into a fairly normal situation in terms of rotation of roles in the team, although the role of creative director is actually pretty central to the process of developing a video game, so it can't be said that Longo's exit from the stage should taken very lightly. In any case, “the whole creative vision and production of the game remains in the hands of Chris Lee, Head Studio of Halo Infinite, "as reported by Microsoft itself. Additionally," These changes will have no impact on the release date of Halo Infinite, "the company explained, meaning there will be no delay in launching the game due to changed question.
