Destiny Creative Lead Leaving Bungie #Bungie #Destiny #Overwatch


Gamespot is reporting that Destiny creative lead CJ Cowan is leaving Bungie after 13 years. Cowan has worked on classic titles like Halo 3, ODST and Reach.

Quote:
According to his LinkedIn resume, Cowan started at Bungie back in 2003, working on Halo 2 as a cinematic designer. He was the director of cinematics for Halo 3, Halo 3: ODST, and Halo: Reach, later becoming the lead story designer for Destiny.

In November 2015, he took on the role of Destiny's story creative lead, a position he held until leaving Bungie this month.

Prior to joining Bungie, Cowan was a lead animator at Interplay, working at the company from 1999-2003 on projects including Run Like Hell.

The Savannah College of Art and Design graduate now lists his job title as "storyteller for hire."

"I don't have time to explain why I don't have time to explain"

If he is the guy responsible for that gem then good riddance.

Probably sick of the suits forcing him to cut down his grand vision. I know Destiny's story was absolutely butchered for the launch.

You could tell it was a going to be a GOAT game, then it was stuffed behind a bunch of DLC. Such a shitty way to do a great game.

I loved the initial release for 15 hours then was like....welp, fuck you, im not spending 120$ on your game.

They work so hard on Destiny, they don't even have time to stop and comb their hair. Now THAT is dedication. Or just poor hygiene, take your pick.
