'Halo' News: Microsoft Job Listing Hints At New Xbox One Project From 343 Industries Besides 'Halo 5': Need A Career? Apply Today.
343 Industries, the studio behind the wealth of upcoming Halo based projects, needs you. Assuming you are well versed in environment design, project management and have a proven track record working on a large scale, high budget video game project that millions of people admire, then maybe they have a job for you.
Reported by TotalXBox, 343 has put out a job advert, "looking for a Senior Producer to help develop a new project line in the Halo universe. This is your chance to work on one of the most exciting and creative intellectual properties in the industry with one of the industry's most talented teams."
A new project line? 343 already has the upcoming Halo 5 Guardians, the first four Halo games in a new collection and of course the much delayed but finally happening Halo TV series. What new project could 343 and Microsoft have up their sleeves this time? A betting man would say a 'free to play mobile action RPG', as those are all the rage with the kids these days.
The ad further purports, "Build a strong working relationship with the game development team and help them with any obstacles to ensure that the game is "fun" and on time." Is anyone else slightly concerned about the use of quotes around the word fun? Feels kind of ominous to me.
A second job advertisement calls for a Senior Concept Artist "to help breathe a fresh vision into a new Halo experience". If interested, be sure to have "extensive science fiction experience" and "the ability to convey strong design through a whole spectrum of work including: environments, vehicles, props, weapons."
343 Industries should have little problem filling either of these roles. Working on a Halo game is the absolute pinnacle of professional achievement, like getting to play for the Yankees. The games are well designed, incredible experiences that everyone will play at some point. Any artist or developer would love to get to work on one as a testament to their expertise and skill.
So, what is the mysterious new project? Tell us below in the comments!
