Ryan Payton Halo 4 Creative Director Quits

Camoflaj…more than just a mispelling of camoflage, it’s the new Studio in town. (cue western showdown music) Ryan Payton announced that he has left Microsoft and 345 industries to start the aforementioned studio (Camoflaj). He apparently had dreams for Halo 4 that Microsoft was not willing to envision. He told Kotaku as much in an interview saying:

The Halo I wanted to build was fundamentally different and I don’t think I had built enough credibility to see such a crazy endeavor through

That is unfortunate when a company does not see the grand scheme of a vision of one person but it happens. Hopefully with Camoflaj Payton will be able to see his dreams come to reality in the video games he helps create. Payton said this about what he hopes for the future of Camoflaj:

Some people say I’m crazy, but I want to make a game that one billion people play at once, and it’s something that hits them harder than a great book or film
