In a recent job post of the 343 Industries revealed some quite new information about the future of the Halo franchise.
343 Industries is seeking a Software Development Engineer to help to “Drive the future of Halo” in a process that will involve working with “external partners”. Not only this could mean that future Halo titles on the Xbox One could be made by a outside studio but also could hint that a Halo 2 Anniversary edition for the Xbox One could be in the works by an external studio.
The publishing side of 343i has the challenging task of ensuring our external partners are able to turn world class games into industry movers. A strong candidate will be able to support external partners using a mature pipeline, drive new techniques and algorithms, take a lead on performance tuning issues and bringing passion and new ideas to the table. They will also be approachable and able to work with closely with artists and designers to understand requirements and solve problems.
What do you think this might bring to the future of the Halo franchise?
