Halo 6 Might Be VR Compatible, Job Listing Suggests

Halo in VR? Oh yes, please.

Posted By | On 26th, Mar. 2018

We don’t know much about Halo 6, other than hints by developers 343 Industries to not expect it this year—but now, a new job listing by the studio on LinkedIn may have shed some light on what fans can expect from the eagerly anticipated sixth entry in the series.

The job listing is for Creative Director, and very specifically specifies that 343 Industries is looking at “delivering a new VR experience in the Halo universe”.  The listing seems to cover gameplay and narrative, both, suggesting that this might be a full fledged game, instead of just a VR compatible mode or snippet.

In addition to being the first major hint we have had about Halo 6, this also seems to be the first indication we have had of VR support from Microsoft since before the launch of last year’s Xbox One X- originally, the Xbox One X (then known as Scorpio) had been announced with VR compatibility being one of its headlining features. But emphasis on VR was gradually reduced as the system’s launch neared, with Microsoft ultimately adapting a “wait and see” attitude with the format for now.

Will Halo VR support a proprietary VR headset from Microsoft? HTC Vive and Oculus Rift? Windows Mixed Reality? All of these? Hopefully, an announcement is made soon—but VR might just be the thing that breathes new life back into the series.
