Today, in a Short announcement over on Bungie’s site, Joseph Staten the Writer/Design Director of Destiny has announced he is leaving Bungie.  In his own words:

Dear community friends,

After fifteen great years at Bungie, from the battlefields of Myth to the mysteries of Halo and beyond, I’m leaving to tackle new creative challenges. While this may come as a surprise, fear not. It’s been my pleasure building Destiny these past four years, and after the big reveal this Summer, our hugely talented team is on track for greatness. I’ll be cheering all of them, with all of you, when the game launches next year. Thank you for your support of me, and your continued support of Bungie. We couldn’t have done it without you.
Per Audacia Ad Astra!
Joseph Staten
I will be very excited to see what he ends up doing after Bungie, and we here at Geekoholics wish him all the best.
