This is only a rumor no matter how reliable a source Kotaku says it has, but it appears that Ryan Payton, formerly of Kojima, has been tapped to be the creative director of the upcoming Peter Jackson Halo game. A big move for the man who was credited with giving MGS4 its more accessible control scheme and a bit more of a western gameplay style.
What do you think he can bring to the Halo franchise? I’m not sure a franchise like Halo needs a more eastern style unlike MGS which got better with some western influences. Then again maybe that is just the ticket to refresh the single-player and make a unique and challenging Halo game. Again, just a rumor, but does sound like pretty good news.
