Halo co-creator Marcus Lehto joins EA to build new studio making first-person games

Flood gates are open.

Halo co-creator Marcus Lehto has joined EA as game director of an unannounced first-person game.

Lehto, dubbed "the father of the Master Chief" for his role in the creation of the iconic Halo series at Bungie, is building a new EA office in the Seattle area.

Details are scarce, but Lehto said in a tweet that the new studio is being built to work on first-person games.

Lehto was most recently president and game director at V1 Interactive, which closed down earlier this year after Disintegration failed to pull in enough players.
