Microsoft appears to be staffing up for the next installment in the Halo franchise. The company has posted more than a dozen Halo-related jobs to its careers Web site this month, most of them in the past few days.
"Do you love Halo? Do you want to be part of the creation of a new game in the Halo universe? Are you a programmer with an interest in animation and cinematics?" reads one of the listings, which seeks out a software development engineer who specializes in animation. "We are gathering an incredible team to help drive the future of Halo."
The company is also looking to hire artists and business types, as well as an audio engineer and "missions designer," according to the job listings, which are posted both on Microsoft's main job site and on a Web site for Microsoft's 343 Industries, a game studio set up to develop Halo projects.
