Former Mass Effect producer to focus on HoloLens

Casey Hudson named creative director at Microsoft Studios

Casey Hudson has been named as creative director at Microsoft Studios.

The ex-Mass Effect producer and project director left BioWare in August last year after 16 years to take on a “new stage" of his career. Now at Microsoft, he’ll be working on HoloLens, Xbox and other projects, though his focus will be on the augmented reality tech.

Hudson will work from Microsoft’s Redmond office and will report directly to CVP of Next Gen Experiences Kudo Tsunoda.

“As creative director at Microsoft Studios, my primary focus will be the creative direction of HoloLens Experiences,” he told Xbox News Wire.

“I am extremely passionate about the potential of this kind of technology, as anyone who’s talked with me over the last couple of years can attest. 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. It’s an honour to be able to join such an incredibly talented team, and to work on something that will fundamentally advance the role computers play in our daily lives.

"I will also be working with innovative new Xbox titles, helping them to find success through clear direction and creative vision. I will be involved in driving a creative focus for Xbox and Windows gaming, and I couldn’t be more excited to be involved in that.”
