Next Halo in Early Dev Stages, Says 343 Exec

343 Industries is moving around personnel to work on the next major Halo title, according to Halo franchise development director Frank O’Connor.

O’Connor said that “a lot of people at 343 are already prototyping ideas and software and art for future Halo products,” and added, “I can’t say more than that, but work on the game started actually before we launched Halo 4 and continues apace as we cycle staff through the team’s vacation breaks. We’re excited about the next game.”

Microsoft has already confirmed that it is building a second trilogy of Halo titles, but it is unknown for certain whether this game will be the next installment of the new trilogy.

Halo 4′s Crimson Map pack releases December 10th.

“Microsoft has already confirmed that it is building a second trilogy of Halo titles, but it is unknown for certain whether this game will be the first installment of the new trilogy.”

Wait, what? Halo 4 was the start of the new trilogy, so what does this statement even mean?

@Mike:

Sorry, that was a mis-type. Should read “next” installment, not “first.” Fixed. Thanks!

Safe guess: 343 has 2 team split between a Halo 2 remake for the 720 launch and a concept team working on Halo 5
