Now that Halo: Reach, Bungie's final Halo title, is out the door, 343 Industries has taken the reins of the Master Chief brand. What the team is working on remains a closely guarded secret, but what is known is that the studio is actively soliciting help to create it.
343 Industries yesterday listed 15 new openings at the Halo studio on its jobs portal page. According to the listings, the Washington state developer is looking for a number of new individuals to fill various positions, like multiplayer designer, effects artist, mission designer, staffing consultant, and others. All positions are listed for the studio's next big Halo project.
This isn't the first time 343 Industries has displayed its enthusiasm to find new developers for the studio's secret Halo project. In June, the developer listed 24 high-level development positions including lead environment artist, senior concept artist, senior producer, and two senior software development engineers, among other positions.
It's no secret that Microsoft remains committed to creating titles around the Halo name. Bungie alum and 343 Industries head Frank O'Connor said the sci-fi series will continue through 2015. Since 343 Industries was founded in 2009, it has been busy spinning the franchise into new novels, comic books, and anime.
