343i Hiring Designer for ‘New Multiplayer Experiences’ on Next Halo

Posted on June 3, 2013 AT 12:36pm

A job listing on Microsoft’s career page indicates developer 343i is aiming to revolutionize multiplayer with their next Halo installment.

“343 Industries is looking for an experienced designer to design and develop revolutionary new multiplayer experiences on an upcoming Halo title,” the Multiplayer Designer listing reads.

Of course, this could just be hyperbole describing Spartan Ops, or the next generation of Spartan Ops. But it could also mean that 343 Industries wants to flex more original muscle with the next Halo and, perhaps, bring a multiplayer fitting for the Xbox One’s next-gen status.

The job listing was posted Friday, May 31, 2013, and by its account, applications will “help shape the future of the Halo franchise on both current and future Halo titles.”

I would say Halo 5 is no doubt among the 15 exclusives Microsoft boasted during the Xbox One reveal, but that would mean it’s expected to launch within the Xbox One’s first year, and Halo 4 only just came out in November 2012. It’s not impossible, but it doesn’t seem altogether likely.
