Microsoft Veteran David Berger Is Reportedly Leaving 343 Industries

Following the departure of 343 Industries head Bonnie Ross, the studio is reportedly set to lose another high-profile figure, engineering director David Berger.

343 Industries, the developer behind Xbox's iconic Halo franchise, is reportedly losing another member of its leadership team.

Earlier this week, the founder and head of 343 Industries Bonnie Ross announced she is leaving the studio and Xbox after spending 15 years working on the Halo franchise and nearly 30 years with Microsoft.

Following her departure, the studio saw a change in leadership. Head of production Pierre Hintze took over as studio head in Ross's place. Bryan Koski became a general manager of the Halo franchise and Elizabeth Van Wyck started leading 343 Industries' business operations.

According to reports from Windows Central and Lords of Gaming, engineering director David Berger is also set to leave 343 Industries. Berger has spent over 14 years working at the company. During his career there, he led the development of the Slipspace Engine and helped ship Halo 4, Halo 5, and Halo Infinite. He also worked at Microsoft since 1999 contributing to classic titles including Mechwarrior, Shadowrun, and Too Human.

Neither Microsoft nor Berger have made an official announcement yet, so it's unclear why he is leaving the company or where he is going to head next.
