Rumors are rampant about the next Halo game. Is it going to be Halo 5? Halo 2 Anniversary? Something else entirely? Microsoft is offering no official answers either way, but once again, a job opening at 343 Industries has caused additional speculation.
343 Industries needs a Software Development Engineer who has “recently shipped a AAA Xbox One title” and “will be able to support external partners.”
The person who takes this position will join “an incredible team to help drive the future of Halo.”
Not only is this job directly related to Halo, but the reference to “external partners” supports the rumors that Saber Interactive and Certain Affinity, who worked on Halo Anniversary, could be working on a Halo 2 Anniversary. On the other hand, it could be related to Halo: Spartan Assault, which was co-developed by Vanguard.
We’d be surprised if this was about Spartan Assault, although that title has cropped up a few times today. Its price was dropped to $9.99 on both the Xbox One and Xbox 360, and it was also announced to be on its way to Steam.
Whatever the case may be, we hope to learn more at E3 in a few months! Share your thoughts and predictions in the comments below.Tags: halo, halo 2, price cut, rumors, spartan assault, xbox one
