Destiny and Halo dev departs after five years
After five and a half years at Bungie senior gameplay designer Josh Hamrick has departed, and he's headed for Bethesda.
The former Destiny and Halo: Reach developer announced the news, as is traditional, on Twitter.
Next Friday, after nearly 6 amazing years and w/ REACH & Destiny on the shelf, I say goodbye to my @Bungie family... A new adventure awaits!— Hamrick ❤️🇺🇦 (@Josh_Hamrick) March 28, 2015
Bethesda! It's Bethesda! I'm going to @BethesdaStudios and I'm super stoked about it!! :-). I hope you'll continue to follow along with me!— Hamrick ❤️🇺🇦 (@Josh_Hamrick) March 28, 2015
Again, I need to say how much the team @Bungie means to me. I've learned so much from them and made tons of lifelong friends during my stay.— Hamrick ❤️🇺🇦 (@Josh_Hamrick) March 28, 2015
Hamrick joined Bungie in August 2009. Prior to that he was game designer and engineer at Midway Studios in Austin where we worked on BlackSite: Area 51 and game systems.
Bethesda is currently hinting at a big reveal at this year's E3 in June, with the studio planning its first press conference at the show on June 14.
