Meet the Man Who Created Halo’s Master Chief – IGN Unfiltered #50


Longtime Bungie art director and eventual game director Marcus Lehto created the Master Chief himself and helmed Halo Reach, one of the series’s most beloved entries. In this one-hour interview, Lehto discusses his humble origins, such as how he got Bungie to hire him, as well as leaving the studio in recent years and starting a new studio to work on a new game, June 2020’s Disintegration.



  1. IGN you mean "Meet the man who claimed he created Master chief" Master Chief is an obvious clone of Doom Slayer / Warhammer 40k Chaos space marines".

  2. Ill be honest though. His new game looks exactly like Halo. The enemies, vehicles and even the guns. That seems incredibly unoriginal and it almost seems like a shot a 343.
