In a blog post today from 343i, it was revealed that Josh Holmes would be leaving to pursue indie game development. For Halo fans, this comes as quite a surprise. You can read the full post including comments from Josh, Bonnie Ross, and Chris Lee here:
Josh has been a big part of 343i since they took over development on Halo and has often acted as the face of the franchise. With Chris Lee taking over and so many experienced Halo franchise leaders at 343i, we’re doubtful there will be any negative impact. But it certainly was surprising to see. We wish Josh all the best on his future endeavors.
