Mass Effect ex-Creative Director takes new role overseeing HoloLens at Microsoft Studios

Casey Hudson, the former Creative Director of the Mass Effect trilogy, has taken on a new role at Microsoft Studios.

Hudson, again as Creative Director, will focus on HoloLens experiences in his new position, as well as “innovative new Xbox titles”.

“I am particularly excited about working on HoloLens,” Hudson said. “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.

“Walking on Mars while sipping coffee in an office setting, Skyping with a friend who can draw on the walls of my environment, sculpting an object in 3D modeling software while a hologram of it sits on a table next to me…

“These first experiences cemented my belief that holographic computing was where I needed to be. There’s no end to the potential of this technology, and I look forward to being able to influence the full-spectrum experience on HoloLens, from hardware to OS, to applications and games.”

Hudson left BioWare in August of last year.
