Xbox One Exclusive ReCore Written By Destiny, Halo Universe Co-Creator

Joseph Staten, the co-creator of the Halo and Destiny universes, who has exited Bungie to work at Microsoft as a senior creative director, is the lead writer on the upcoming Xbox One exclusive ReCore. That piece of information was mentioned in a New York Times story about female heroes in video games.

ReCore's main character is a woman named Joule who must save humanity, not so different from Master Chief from Halo or Guardians from Destiny. The game is inspired by Metroid and The Legend of Zelda.

"The male gender does not have the monopoly on heroism," Staten said. "Joule is emblematic of this conviction, and we hope she's a character who stands strong and stands out in a market filled with male heroes."
