Former Halo Infinite creative head Joseph Staton joins Netflix Games -By Fsk

Following news of his departure from Microsoft earlier this month, former Halo Infinite creative head Joseph Staton has joined Netflix to begin work on a “AAA multiplatform” game.

Staton has been closely involved with the Halo series since 2000, working in various roles at both Bungie and 343 Industries. He debuted as writer and director of cinematics for Halo: Combat Evolved and Halo 2, and will become creative head of Halo Infinite in 2020.

News of his departure from 343 Industries came in January, amid widespread layoffs at Xbox Studios, when it was reported that he would remain in the creative director role at Microsoft. However, earlier this month, Staton confirmed that he had now left Microsoft altogether, saying only that he was preparing to embark on a “new adventure”.

And now, just a few weeks later, Staten has announced A new role at Netflix Games, where he will serve as Creative Director on a new AAA multiplatform game and original IP. “In my working life, there is nothing I love more than collaborating with others to create a world filled with iconic characters, deep mysteries and endless adventure,” he added in an accompanying tweet.

It’s an unexpected announcement, not least because Netflix’s foray into video games has so far focused exclusively on the mobile market. Staton’s talk of a new “AAA multiplatform” title suggests the streaming service is now poised to significantly expand its previously tentative industry presence.

Last month, Netflix announced that it currently has 70 titles in the works – 16 being developed by a growing line-up of internal studios, including its first team to be built from scratch, and the rest from external partners – With 40 this year.
