343 Industries Hiring People With MMO Experience
Is Halo going to be turned into an online shooter? That’s the sensationalist prediction I’m making based on the hot hot hot news that Microsoft is hiring two new positions for 343 Industries – Software Development Engineer IEB and Software Development Engineer Senior IEB – that both require experience in MMO development.
Both positions are for work on Halo-related projects and an unspecified other IP. Successful applicants will be “building the next generation of backend services to power Halo 4 and our new game saga,” the listings read. Of course, the ‘new game saga’ could mean anything. But we’re going to bet now that Microsoft is going to try again to make a Halo MMO.
