Creative Director Leaves Bungie - Secret Project Abandoned?

NowGamer: Marcus Lehto, creative director of Halo: Reach, has tweeted that he's leaving Bungie for the second time.

The wider implication of this move is that it could affect the secret project that tempted Lehto back to Bungie. (Bungie, Xbox 360)

In other news Bungie is leaving Bungie, lol j/k but I mean c'mon I love Bungie for Halo franchise and when they left Microsoft I assumed it wouldn't be long until we saw something amazing for all consoles sprout from their new found independence but still nothing. Some are now with 343 and Lehto leaving, wtf is going on over there?

Well Bungies new game is a sandbox game so development will take longer than linear games...I expect to see a demo of Bungies new game at E3 2013 and release around Nov 2013 which will compete with COD MW4 and Halo spin off game.

Bungies mistake was thinking that the Halo fans would follow them but Halowaypoint has shown that Halo fans are still loyal to Halo and wont jump ship just becuase the creators are gone.

You can always shovel crap, but it takes time to build something. They are working on projects. Set for 2013/2014 debut I believe.

M$ has deeper pockets and will supply whatever is needed if they believe in the project. Activision may be tying hands and limiting budgets. When these guys were with M$, they were given free reign with where they wanted to take Halo.

I've got a feeling that 343 offered him a job. 343 are still ramping up their studio and hiring people. Maybe Lehto decided that he was not ready to stop making Halo.

Or maybe he just saw the evil at Activision n jump the ship sooner!

Dang this is bad news. He's been with Bungie for what seems like forever. Never a good thing to lose a key staff member.
