Halo 4 Lead Designer to Headline Game Design Expo 2013

We’re thrilled to announce our first speakers for Industry Speaker Day at Game Design Expo 2013, hosted by the one-year VFS Game Design program!

Lead Designer Chris Haluke of 343 Industries, developers of Halo 4, will be on hand to discuss his team’s innovative approach to the game’s episodic co-op campaign, Spartan Ops. For a taste, here’s Chris talking Spartan Ops and more with our friend Scott Jones of Electric Playground.

How did the team ensure that the experience fit seamlessly into the Halo universe? How can meaningful episodic content be made accessible and engaging? All will be revealed on January 19, 2013, in a day-long schedule of presentations also featuring Ubisoft Montreal‘s Patrick Plourde, a designer on many titles in the Assassin’s Creed franchise, exploring new horizons in game design.
