343 Industries ramps up Halo development

Here’s another one to add to the collection of leaks from LinkedIn: A 343 Industries designer has recently updated his CV to suggest that work on the next major Halo title has already kicked off, revealing that he began “designing new levels and missions for the next Halo project” as of this month.

Meanwhile, the 343 Industries website has listed a whopping 25 new jobs across all elements of production over the past month, pointing towards a huge recruitment drive for a major upcoming project.

Could this be the next-gen sequel to 2007’s Halo 3? Only time will tell.

This news comes as Bungie puts the finishing touches on Halo: Reach, the last game it will develop for the Halo franchise before fully handing over the mantle to 343 Industries, which is due out on September 14th.
