A former 343 Industries employee that worked on Halo 5: Guardians has now joined Visceral Games to work on their new Star Wars title.
Visceral’s Scott Warner announced: “Please welcome #Halo5 Design Director @monkeybrad_zeta to the crew here @VisceralGames!”
The employee in question is Brad Welch. He replied with: “Yeah man, looking forward to joining @scottfeed @amy_hennig & the crew @VisceralGames on a new adventure!”
Aside from working on the campaign for Halo 5: Guardians, he has worked on some other video games in the past too. His LinkedIn profile shows he worked on the old Destroy All Humans franchise as well as Halo 4.
We know he’s working on the new Star Wars game since he attached Amy Hennig’s name to his Twitter reply. Hennig joined Visceral Games in order to write the story for the new Star Wars video game. She joined Visceral Games after leaving Naughty Dog and Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End behind.
Neither EA or Visceral Games have announced what their new Star Wars game will be about. Some job listings in the past suggest it could be an action RPG of some sort. Whatever it is, it should be exciting.
