As can be discerned, the Master Chief designer didn’t let out much. However, it will be interesting to see what his big career decisions will be. Commenting on a fan’s reply on his tweet, Marcus did say that fans will get to know more in a few months. Will we get an announcement of a new title or something else? Only time and Marcus has to answer to these.

Marcus is one of the veterans when it comes to making and designing games. He started working at Bungie in 1997, where he helped co-create the Halo universe. Lehto later became the art director at the studio on other Halo games.

However, he met with a rocky start and didn’t have much success. V1 Interactive’s first title, Disintegration was launched in June last year and failed to grab player’s attention. Marcus permanently shut down the studio in March this year.
The Halo co-creator must have learned certain lessons and will try to improve and implement them in his future endeavors. What do you think Marcus is up to this time? Let us know your thoughts in the comments.
