Xbox One Exclusive ReCore Written By Destiny, Halo Universe Co-Creator
"The male gender does not have the monopoly on heroism."
Joseph Staten, the co-creator of the Halo and Destiny universes, who has since left Bungie to work at Microsoft as a senior creative director, is the lead writer on upcoming Xbox One exclusive ReCore. That piece of information was mentioned in a New York Times story about female heroes in video games.

ReCore's main character is a woman named Joule who must save humanity--not unlike Master Chief from Halo or Guardians from Destiny. The game is inspired by Metroid and The Legend of Zelda.
"The male gender does not have the monopoly on heroism," Staten said. "Joule is emblematic of this conviction, and we hope she's a character who stands strong and stands out in a market filled with male heroes."
ReCore was announced during Microsoft's E3 2015 briefing in June. However, since then, the game has stayed largely under wraps. It's in development at Armature Studio--founded by Metroid developers--under the direction of Mega Man creator Keiji Inafune.
It's due to launch in 2016 and is just one of Microsoft's Xbox One titles launching that year. Others include Crackdown 3, Sea of Thieves, Gears of War 4, and Killer Instinct Season 3.
