Microsoft is looking for a graphics developer to work on the “next generation of game visuals in the Halo universe,” at 343 Industries.

The job listing on Microsoft’s careers site reads: “Microsoft Studios 343 Industries is looking for an experienced graphics developer to help create the current and next generation of game visuals in the Halo universe. Work on one of the most exciting and creative properties in the industry; Work with the incredible 343 team to help drive the future of Halo.”

The ad also mentions that DirectX 11 experience is a plus, and considering that the Xbox 360 doesn’t support it, that tends to suggest a next-generation title. Unless the next Halo is also being developed for PC, which is unlikely.

We already know that two more Halo games are planned in 343’s new series, and it appears that Halo 5 will be on Microsoft’s next-generation console, according to this advert.
