Possible Halo MMO In The Works?
A recent wave of job recruitment advertisements have led many to believe that the new developer of Halo, 343 Industries, could be planning an MMO for the hit Xbox360 franchise. The developers of the recently released and hugely popular Halo 4 recently placed articles on a number of job websites looking to hire developers with experience in MMO development, with the aim of developing backend services to power Halo 4 and a new game saga.
The company, 343 Industries, have already advertised for developers to work on the next-generation of Halo, with many assuming it will continue to be an exclusive for the next generation Xbox, which was recently leaked as the official name for Microsoft’s next console. Fans of the Halo series may remember rumors surrounding a Halo MMO under development at Ensemble, a Microsoft Studio that has pretty much disappeared off the radar.
Could 343 Industries be resurrecting the Halo MMO project? This generation of consoles hasn’t really had any major impact on the MMO world as many originally hoped for, with next to no console exclusive MMO’s and only a few that were already available on the PC.
