Kenneth Scott, Senior Art Director of Halo 4, has made the decision to walk away from his duties at 343 Industries. According to a spokesperson from Microsoft, Scott’s decision to step down came from his desire to be with his family.
“In order to be with his family, Kenneth Scott and 343 Industries have agreed to transition his current role.”

In November, Scott’s wife, Corinne Yu, jumped ship from East coast developer 343 Industries to West coast developer Naughty Dog. Scott worked on Halo 4 for four years and was supposedly working on the upcoming Halo title for Xbox One.
Nicolas “Sparth” Bouvier, Scott’s colleague and fellow collaborator, will now assume the role as Scott will transition to a new Visual Design Consultant role.
