Red Storm Entertainment senior designer and creative director Christian Allen has announced, via a post on his own personal blog, that he has left the developer and taken a lead design position at Halo developer Bungie. Allen was heavily involved in the Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon games, including the most recent Ghost Recon: Advanced Warfighter titles. After a tour of duty as a military police officer in the U.S. Marine Corps., Allen began making mods for the Rogue Spear series of games before being hired by Red Storm – now a wholly owned subsidiary of French publisher Ubisoft. There is no specific indication of what projects Allen might be working on at Bungie, although he mentions that “I’ll be working on something a bit different than Ghost Recon”. Bungie has yet to announce any plans for new titles after its highly anticipated Halo 3 launches next month. Allen is already at work at Bungie’s Seattle studios, having left Red Storm on August 10th.
