Halo veteran Marcus Lehto’s last attempt to start afresh didn’t go down so well. But never one for giving up, Lehto today announced that he’s begun working with EA to build another new studio.

Breaking the news on Twitter earlier today, Lehto announced he’ll be working as game director at the new Seattle-based outfit, one that’ll primarily focus on first-person games.

Lehto’s history as co-creator on Halo and art director on the first three games isn’t to be scoffed at, and helped him get then-new studio V1 Interactive off the ground back in 2014. The studio’s first and only game was Disintegration, an ambitious marriage of FPS and RTS that Morgan unfortunately felt didn’t work on either level in early previews.

That sentiment was unfortunately felt upon Disintegration’s release, with the game failing to make much of a splash. The game closed its multiplayer servers last September, with the studio ultimately shuttering this March.
