Halo 4 art director steps down

Kenneth Scott moving into newly created visual design consultant position for 343 Industries.

by

Halo 4 art director Kenneth Scott has stepped down from his position as a senior member of the visual team at the Microsoft-owned Halo house 343 Industries. He's not leaving the company altogether, as a Microsoft representative informed IGN that Scott will continue to work with 343 Industries on a remote basis in his new position as visual design consultant.

Scott's longtime colleague and collaborator Nicolas "Sparth" Bouvier, who has also worked on the Assassin's Creed and Prince of Persia franchises, is taking over as art director for the Halo series. You can check out some of Bouvier's creations on his website.

Scott spent a decade working at Doom studio id Software from 1998-2008, before joining Microsoft, where he worked on Halo 4 from January 2009 through November 2012. Presumably, Scott's continued relationship with Microsoft will see him working on the new Halo game for the Xbox One, which Microsoft assured fans this week remains on track for release in 2014.

I bet Halo 5 will still have a bunch of pink armored male gamers who sound like Chris Crocker.

@blackaceYep. I Hope they'll shake up the combat a bit this time. It felt a bit more spontaneous going after the Covenant, than the forerunners in their tight formations.

@acp_45 343 will continue animating Halo's shambling corpse until the world ends, pretty much.
