Ex-Mass Effect director joins Microsoft HoloLens project

Casey Hudson has joined Microsoft to work on HoloLens, Xbox, and more.


Casey Hudson, who is best known as the project director on BioWare’s Mass Effect series as well as his work on Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic, has joined Microsoft as a creative director on HoloLens, Xbox, and additional projects.

"As Creative Director at Microsoft Studios, my primary focus will be the creative direction of HoloLens Experiences," 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.”

Hudson departed EA and BioWare in August 2014 after 15 years of employment, and at Microsoft, he will report to HoloLens project lead Kudo Tsunoda.
