As 343 Industries’ Kenneth Scott heads out the doors toward warmer climates in California, the art director sang the praises of his successor as the studio works toward a Halo 5 release later this year, according to a report today from Games Industries.

Nicolas “Sparth” Bouvier will replace Scott, who served as the art director at 343 Industries since 2008 and oversaw the development of Halo 4.

“Nicolas and I have worked together for the last eight years, and we've shared a brain for most of it,” Scott said. “He was one of my first hires to 343, and not seeing him day-to-day will feel as weird as losing a limb.”

Scott will continue to serve as a visual design consultant from “sunny Santa Monica,” where he’s moving to be closer to his family.

Bouvier worked on Halo 4 also, along with Alone in the Dark 4, Cold Fear, Prince of Persia: Warrior Within and Assassin’s Creed.

The studio’s executive producer Josh Holmes championed a similar sentiment to Scott’s in a post to the Halo Waypoint blog, calling Bouvier a “master painter and a visionary artist with 17 years of industry experience.”

“He is world-renowned for his concept work and is someone whose work I have followed closely long before I came to 343,” Holmes said.

In the same blog post, Holmes introduced some concept art for the upcoming Xbox One Halo game created by Bouvier. You can read more of that Examiner report by clicking here.
