Bungie's Weinland and Cowan to keynote Game Design Expo

Halo 3 may be a distant memory as gamers' collective eyes and thumbs have since moved on to other things, but this hasn't stopped organizers of Vancouver's Game Design Expo 2008 to invite representatives from developer Bungie to take the stage and wax poetic about their FPS darling. The event will take place at the Vancouver Film School, and will also include talks led by designers, producers, and CEOs from such companies as Activision, BioWare, Eidos, EA, and Stormfront Studios. Tickets for the Game Design Expo 2008, which runs from January 19-20, go on sale November 21.

Bungie's speakers, namely audio lead Jay Weinland and director of cinematics CJ Cowan, are expected to talk at length about the tools and techniques used to create Halo 3's visuals, though we imagine once the microphone is turned over to the audience it won't take long for the topic to turn to what life is like after the dev's much-publicized divorce from Microsoft, including how they are holding up and, more importantly, who got to keep the dog.
