343 Industries, a Microsoft owned studio is on a recruitment drive to hire a development team to get to work on a brand new game within the Halo series.

With more than 20 jobs on offer, 343 Industries are encouraging creative talent to be a part of Halo history!

343 Industries is forging the future of Halo, expanding and building upon one of the most important and successful franchises in gaming history.

Just you wait. 343 is set to revolutionize gaming and entertainment by putting the industry’s fiercest talent in one room and diving for cover.

Halo: Reach currently in development by Bungie will be their last Halo game for the foreseeable future, as they will commence work on an upcoming multi-console game for Activision.

I want it to be a Halo game set inside the belly of a whale

i’m a halo nerd. i really am. but there is no way this crap will be worth the buy. if i wanted a half assed version of a game, i’d buy a COD game…

Microsoft… Blow.

I too don’t have much faith in a non-bungie Halo game. No one, I believe could do it better than the original creator.

Let’s just hope this isn’t ‘Halo Wars II’ :)

Time frame wise this new Halo game may be a swan song game for the 360 as more then likely the successor of the 360 will be named and probably released about a yr. or so after this halo is released.

Yeah you could be right, I think Halo 4 would be the biggest thing they could for a next gen console - Master Chief deserves a big Xbox 720 revival.

I think this Halo game will use the same engine as Halo Reach - and god knows where the story will start from… hopefully after Halo 3, but not quite a Halo 4.

Does that make any sense :P

I hope the halo 4 story is that 30 years after halo 3, humanity rebuilt and enhanced the spartan project. Humanity wants revenge on all the covenant species and gos to all of there planets and wipes out there species one by 1. Then the forerunners see how destructive humanity is and declare war on us. Meanwhile 117 lands on an alien planet and battles the creator forerunner on a mechanical planet that builds halo rings.

Halo 4 could be based from a section between Halo: Reach and Halo 1 where master chief is sent in to battle the Insurrectionists… or could be based around them (the Insurrectionists).
