Where does it say he went to Naughty Dog, thats false, his wife did and he still works for Microsoft.


did you not read the article? It literally says in the first sentence he stepped down and moved to California to be with his wife. So unless he plans on retiring at a remarkably young age I imagine he'll join his wife at Naughty Dog


Did you?

It says he's still working at 343 in another remote role.

Quote from the article: "Kenneth will continue to work with 343 Industries remotely and partner with Nicolas in a newly created role as a Visual Design Consultant."


so he's secretly a double agent for Naughty Dog? j/k the ponies here are so desperate this is probably what they believe

is this some sort of alternate dimension where people only read a portion of things and then jump to conclusions?

Because that's the only employer in the whole area?


MS doesn't really have any offices out there. I mean he could still do phone and skype conferences but not much outside of that
that's exactly how it's done, actually. skype screen sharing. outsourced freelance artists do this all the time now. he's still working for 343. says so right there in the article.

No, it's just Gamefaqs.

“In order to be with his family, Kenneth Scott and 343 Industries have agreed to transition his current role," a Microsoft spokesperson told IGN. Scott's wife, Corrinne Yu, left Washington's 343 Industries in November for Sony's Naughty Dog in California.

If I am understanding this correctly, this means he left his position at 343 but not Microsoft. So essentially he transferred to another dept to be with his family.

I hope everyone realizes a lot of these guys in the industry have long resumes working on all sorts of games for all sorts of employers. Some of them you might love, some you might hate. They are just normal people doing a job after all.

yes but how long do you really think the man would be satisfied in such a job? He goes from making the character models and sprites to the most iconic characters on Xbox to giving advice on stuff over the phone.

To be honest, the actual PS4 board is really good, it's full of gamers not ponies.

The ponies are here.

What's so hard to understand?

"Kenneth will continue to work with 343 Industries remotely and partner with Nicolas in a newly created role as a Visual Design Consultant. We can’t wait to share more details regarding the future of ‘Halo’ very soon.”"
