It has been almost 3 years since the release of the last Halo game and so far, there hasn’t been any word regarding future entries into the series. Now, a new job listing confirms that a new Halo game is in development. The job listing is for ‘Lead Graphics Developer‘ and it seems like one of the main points of focus is 4K graphics.
Since this will be the first Halo game to release in a while, expectations will certainly be high. It looks like 343 Industries is doing their best to ensure that the game will look great. The official description for the job listing is as follows, “343 Industries, the studio developing Halo games, is looking for a Lead Graphics Engineer to join our team working on the next big Halo shooter experience. Be part of a studio that values collaboration, innovative thinking, and especially passion for the player. As the Graphics Lead, you will be leading, managing, and contributing directly on the award-winning graphics team, collaborating closely with the art teams and pushing the visual bar to inconceivable levels on future FPS Halo titles.”
“The ideal candidate will have a passion for game graphics and for directing a team, love getting their hands dirty working directly with the content teams while coding incredible systems. You will drive graphical innovation and produce amazing systems and visuals for our entire future FPS Halo experiences. If stunning 60 Hz 4k graphics gets you excited, this is the right job for you.”
Hopefully, we will receive some official information about the new Halo game soon enough. It’s certainly possible that we may get to see something related to the game at this year’s E3, so keep your eyes and ears open for any new information.
