Does this mean Joseph Staten is back working on Halo...If he's writing a novel for Halo its most likely.
For people who don't know he was the writer for Halo games...he was the writer and director for Destiny but quit a year before release...he left perhaps because they hindered with the story he was writing...maybe that why Destiny story is all told in a different way.

According to the statement issued by MS last year,he will be working on various MS game franchises and i think that includes Halo.

I think he is more involved in Halo (although I wished he wasn't and worked on something new).
Microsoft needs to start a new studio with him and make him work on a new IP.

This is great! M$ really understands why investing in its main property is terrific for consumers.

Having Joseph Staten back after leaving Bungie over a year ago was pivotal for the Halo Universe.

M$ has 2 great writers making greatness for its top franchise in Frank O'Connor & Joseph Staten, on Halo.

The Halo Universe has a bunch of material for awesome Campaign play.

If Joseph Staten ends up writing Halo 5 or 6 people are gonna be full of joy. I know Reach wasn't that good but that style of prose Joseph has is just excellent and Iconic for Halo and something that was really missing in H4.

I need to read New Blood, especially since it has Buck as the central character and he might become a spartan. I really hope he appears in future halo games with Nathan Fillion reprising his role.
