Bungie Content Manager O’Connor Departs For Microsoft

Frank O’Connor, content manager for Halo developer Bungie Studios has announced that he is to leave the company for Halo publisher and license owner Microsoft. Speaking on the company’s website, O’Connor explained: I am leaving you. I am off to work more closely with Microsoft on the Halo franchise, so I shan’t be too far away, but I wanted to take this last chance, appropriately enough in a Weekly Update, to tell you a very fond thanks.” O’Connor makes reference to recently working on the story for a new project at Bungie, rumored to be unconnected with the Halo franchise, but gives little indication of his exact role at Microsoft. Following Bungie’s surprise reversion to an independent developer in October of last year, the exact relationship between the two companies, particularly in terms of the Halo franchise, has become less clear. The next two Halo projects are both known to have more limited input from Bungie, with Ensemble Studio’s real-time strategy game Halo Wars and a still secretive product from movie director Peter Jackson.
