Microsoft's Halo hiring spree continues
Latest volley of employee solicitations adds 12 new positions including multiplayer designer, environment artist, animator, and design director for "new high profile Halo experience."
In late December, 343 Industries--the team at Microsoft now responsible for the Halo brand--listed 15 new positions for its next big Halo project. Now, the internal developer is soliciting almost as many in its latest volley of job listings.
343 Industries recently listed 12 new openings at the Halo studio via its career portal page. According to the listings, the studio is looking for a number of new individuals to fill numerous positions, including technical artist, multiplayer designer, environment artist, animator, and a design director. All positions relate to the new "high profile Halo experience" the team in Bellevue, Washington, is crafting.
Would-be applicants' minds must be bastions of Halo knowledge, as Microsoft is actively soliciting "rabid" Halo fans, who will be asked to "demonstrate that you've played all of the games and thought a lot about the franchise."
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.
