For a long time now, fans have asked why Xbox hasn’t explored more of the vast Halo universe. The opportunity for different types of games is substantial and feels as though it hasn’t been capitalized on. Well, that looks to be changing in the future.
According to a job listing on Microsoft’s official site, 343 Industries is hiring for a “Producer to help develop a new project in the Halo universe.”
Now this doesn’t necessarily mean a game. However, given the qualification requirements, shipping a AAA game seems to be the focus: “Experience shipping games. You have experience shipping AAA current generation games as a Producer.”
It really shouldn’t be a surprise given the growth and investment of Xbox Game Studios that 343 Industries is going to finally branch out into multiple Halo game projects, but we’re still excited to finally see movement. We will certainly be paying close attention to this one as it develops.
