Bungie Announces Destiny Designer Leaving and New Weapons

By acharris7726-09-2013

Destiny's writer and design director, Joseph Staten, has announced that he is leaving Bungie after 15 years. Staten reveals that he is "leaving to tackle new creative challenges." During his employment, he oversaw the Halo series and for the last four years has been working on Destiny.

The announcement was posted on Bungie's official site, and reads:

Dear community friends,

After fifteen great years at Bungie, from the battlefields of Myth to the mysteries of Halo and beyond, I'm leaving to tackle new creative challenges. While this may come as a surprise, fear not. It's been my pleasure building Destiny these past four years, and after the big reveal this Summer, our hugely talented team is on track for greatness. I'll be cheering all of them, with all of you, when the game launches next year. Thank you for your support of me, and your continued support of Bungie. We couldn't have done it without you.

Per Audacia Ad Astra!

Joseph Staten

This feels like the end of an era, but I am sure everyone will want to wish Joseph Staten all the best. Let us hope that he has the same success with future projects.

As well as the sad news of Joseph Staten, Bungie also announced new weapons for their upcoming title Destiny. Five weapons have been added. 1st up is Closing Time, an exotic sniper rifle. Then we got the Gjallahorn which is a powerful rocket launcher. Also to help is a exotic pulse rifle called the Red Death, but if this is not enough firepower for you, then we have a hand cannon, Duke MK.44. And last up is the Thunderlord, which is an exotic heavy machine gun. So with all this firepower in Destiny, you are guaranteed to be packing some serious heat. Let us know your comments below on Staten leaving and the new weapons in Destiny.

That usually entails development woes, but I'm probably be negative, in the end, we'll see how this ultimately turns out.
