Halo co-creator Marcus Lehto recently took to Twitter to announce to his fans that he will be making some big decisions regarding his career this very week. He also believes that those decisions will be divisive for his fans, saying that while some of them will, of course, be supportive to the decision, others probably won’t be.
Marcus Lehto has served for more than a decade at Halo‘s original studio Bungie before assuming the mantle of creative director for Disintegration. This V1 Interactive developed sci-fi shooter had an underwhelming critical and commercial reception, following which servers for the game were shut down last year. Not long afterward, V1 Interactive itself also closed its doors.
What Lehto is currently working on remains a mystery for now. Given his penchant for continually dabbling into sci-fi shooters, it wouldn’t be a surprise if he takes another crack at developing a game using a similar setting. However, it would certainly be interesting to see what challenges await Lehto in his journey, and hopefully, fans get something great out of it.
Making some pretty big decisions with my career this week. Some of you will support it, some will not. I just ask that you all join me on this next leg of journey. It’s going to be big!
