If you've played the Mass Effect games, chances are you're familiar with Casey Hudson; he was the project director on the series and was heading up development on the as-of-yet unnamed fourth Mass Effect game at Bioware Montreal before leaving the company last year.
It was announced today that Hudson has been been appointed as Creative Director at Microsoft Studios, and he'll be working specifically on HoloLens—Microsoft's new virtual-reality and augmented reality-tech—and new game experiences to come along with it.
Hudson mentioned in an interview with Xbox.com that he had been an Xbox fan ever since he first worked on Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic, noting that the games he worked on found the greatest success there and that it's even his preferred way of playing games.
While it's unknown if Hudson is working on any specific games that are currently in development or if they're mostly in the prototyping stage still, there's always a chance we might hear more about the HoloLens at E3 in just under a month's time.
