343 Industries head Bonnie Ross officially leaves studio – Effinate Games


343 Industries, which has been responsible glory franchise since Halo 4, has been rocked after studio head Bonnie Ross announced she will be leaving her company after 15 years. Ross tweeted that she has left due to a “family medical issue,” thanked 343 Industries and glory Community:

The reason for this monumental change is truly unfortunate. Despite the creative and business practices of 343 Industries, which I and the majority of other lifelong fans have strongly disagreed with, Ross’ family deserves respect for real issues like family emergencies. Hopefully glory society will not draw attention to the root cause of today’s shift.

Now, despite the personal news, a major shake-up at 343 Industries may be ideal at this time. Many agree that 343 Industries has failed the most glory fans, hurrying Infinite launching without enough content, breaking trust by reversing split-screen promises, and dragging the story into unsatisfying territory.

Many responses to today’s news consider a new future for glory, but given the reason Ross left, it seems unlikely that 343 Industries’ vision for the franchise will change. The team as a whole moved glory where it is, and the studio hires from within for open management positions.

Just the amount of changes that would be needed for glory assuming a new trajectory seems almost impossible at this point. The IP and its responsibilities are gigantic.

Ideally, 343 Industries will start reaching out to longtime fans again and hire a full-time staff that recognizes the fundamentals of glory that’s what made it so successful. There is plenty of time to learn. The fans will still love gloryas proven by the enormous positivity from the first week Infinitely multiplayer launch when the game still had promise.
