Former BioWare Creative Director Joins Microsoft Studios For HoloLens
According to reports, Microsoft already has first-party studios working on games and other interactive software for its recently announced HoloLens virtual reality device.
The latest addition to the workforce is Casey Hudson, a former developer at BioWare where he served as Creative Director for the last fifteen years on major franchises such as Mass Effect and Star Wars. Hudson has now joined Team Microsoft on a similar role, where he will be focusing on the creative direction of the HoloLens.
“As Creative Director at Microsoft Studios, my primary focus will be the creative direction of HoloLens Experiences,” he said. “I feel that the work being done at Microsoft on mixed reality and holographic computing will have a tremendous impact on how all of us interact with technology in the coming years.”
Hudson further praised the “incredibly talented team” he is working with and teased that there are plenty “innovative new Xbox titles” in the works.
“The projects I’ve seen in development so far are amazing, and it’s going to be an awesome experience helping these teams cross the finish line.”
The Microsoft HoloLens was revealed earlier this year in January. The wearable headset allows users to interact with holograms that pop up around them in their present environment. The company giant has utilized high-definition lenses and spatial sound technology to bring that immersive experience to consumers. The headset itself does not require to be connected to a PC.
The HoloLens is currently in its prototype form, but Microsoft has promised that it will be released to the public around the same time it launches Windows 10 later this year.
