Ryan Payton, one of the creative developers for Halo 4 has left not only the development of the new installment to the Halo Universe, but the 343 Industries team altogether.
The former Metal Gear Solid 4 producer left the project, stating that “The Halo I wanted to build was fundamentally different and I don’t think I had built enough credibility to see such a crazy endeavor through.” The main thing stated in this news is that Payton feels Halo 4 won’t be a bad game, it’s just he did not like the direction it was going.
After a reported bout of depression, Payton decided that Halo 4 would be best left in the hands of someone who agreed with the direction, and has set up his own company, Camouflaj to fulfill his ambitions. Time will tell as to what Payton will make, or if Halo 4 is moving onto a good or bad path.
