Microsoft Studios appoints new creative director to drive HoloLens experiences

Microsoft Studios, the division that handles Xbox and the 3D headset, has appointed Casey Hudson creative director.

Previously, Hudson held a 15-year position at Bioware/EA where he helped develop and create multiple successful videogames.

In this new role, he will be tasked with cultivating and growing Microsoft’s presence in the world of 3D experiences with the HoloLens.

“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,” he wrote in a blogpost.

“These first experiences cemented my belief that holographic computing was where I needed to be.”

Hudson will also help bring new Xbox titles to stores.
