BioWare's Casey Hudson will focus on designing 3-D games for Microsoft's augmented reality headset
BioWare game producer Casey Hudson, who spearheaded the development of blockbuster titles such as Mass Effect, will join Microsoft as “creative director” of its gaming unit, with a focus on developing augmented reality games for the HoloLens.
“I was fortunate to try an early prototype of HoloLens before it was announced, and I was blown away by the technology and what it was already capable of,” Hudson said in an interview posted to Microsoft’s official Xbox blog on Monday. “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 will report to Kudo Tsunoda, corporate vice president of next gen experiences.
