Halo 5 executive producer named as new head.
343 Industries, which developed Halo 4, Halo 5: Guardians and Halo Wars, saw its studio head Dan Ayoub leave last week to work on the Mixed Reality team at Microsoft.
It has named a replacement in the form of Chris Lee. Franchise development director Frank O’Connor said on Twitter that you could “follow our new studio head @tefferlee because he’s keen to talk about Halo and better at twitter than me. I am still mastering MySpace.”
Chris Lee has a fair amount of experience with the Halo franchise. Along with serving as the senior lead producer on Halo 4 and the executive producer on Halo 5: Guardians, Lee has also been involved in Halo: Reach and Halo 3: ODST. He’s been working with Microsoft since 2003 and joined Microsoft Game Studios in 2004 as a software development testing engineer.
