Haigh-Hutchinson started his career at Artic Software but left for Vortex Software in 1984, and left again, this time for Elite Systems, where he ported Paperboy to the Amstrad CPC. He then later worked at Tiertex. In 1989, he was hired by LucasArts, where he worked until 1999, mostly on Star Wars video games. From 2000-2008, he worked at Retro Studios, where he developed the camera system for the Prime Series and was senior engineer alongside David Kirsch. Haigh-Hutchinson and Andy O'Neil created the Metroid Prototype, an early version of a Wii port of Metroid Prime 2: Echoes (which later became New Play Control! Metroid Prime 2: Echoes and the Metroid Prime Trilogy version of Echoes).

Haigh-Hutchinson died in Austin, Texas from pancreatic cancer on January 15, 2008, at the age of 43. He is survived by a wife and two daughters. The credits in the Metroid Prime Trilogy versions of Metroid Prime, Echoes and Metroid Prime 3: Corruption now begin with a dedication to him.
