Joe Staten says goodbye to Bungie after 15 years

That's Joe on the left
Sometimes there’s a guy so cool that you just don’t want to meet just in case he isn’t actually cool. I think Bungie’s Joe Staten might be one of those guys. Not that he isn’t actually that cool, it’s that he’s that cool. Cool? Anyways, Joe is leaving Bungie. Cue the boos and hisses! 

Rumour has it he got fired for making Destiny too awesome. Or something. He’s actually leaving with a nice note from Bungie on their homepage.

Here’s State’s leaving note:

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


What’s next on the horizon for Joe? Time will tell….
