What you need to know

  • Halo Infinite is an upcoming shooter from 343 Industries.
  • It's expected to launch in Holiday 2020.
  • However, there's another Halo project in the works at the developer.
  • A job listing revealed its existence, but didn't provide further details.

Halo Infinite should launch in Holiday 2020, but it looks like developer 343 Industries is planning another game in the popular franchise. Today, Twitter user Klobrille noticed that the team was looking for a Senior Producer to lead a new project in the Halo universe.

The post said, "343 Industries is looking for a Senior Producer to work with our Core Services team to help develop a new project in the Halo universe." It's unclear what this project could be at the moment, but it doesn't seem like it's the sequel to Halo Infinite since it's not even out yet. It may be a spin-off or another title along those lines.

  • I honestly think 343 and the Coalition should take a crack at new IPs. Just to take a break and work on new ideas.
  • I don't think 343 should, in fact, I think they should do more rapid game releases. It's been what, 5-6 years since the last Halo? At this point, we don't even know if Halo Infinite is a stand-alone game, or if it is going to be Halo 6 and wrap up the main storyline.
  • It's been 5 years, before that it was 3 years. I'm sure Halo Infinite is going to continue the story from Halo 5, seems like they went with the title changed because they see this as a spiritual reboot of the series. There may be an open world element with some sort of RPG mechanics in this one.
  • @Cody
    So what do you want? Halo to turn into CoD? Just pump games every year?
  • Yea... But one of the main reasons for the long delay was the creation of the slipspace engine not the game development itself.
  • Yes, agree. One studio should be given the opportunity to work on new stuff along with their usual franchise. It's about creativity and keeping things new and exciting... New worlds, new stories. Build new IPs.
    We've seen other studios doing this very well. Guerilla doing Horizon: ZD instead of another Killzone, Sucker Punch doing Ghost of Tsushima instead of another inFamous.
    I don't think studios should work only on one franchise and produce sequels after sequels...
  • I would love a third person Mass Effect Style game in the Halo universe. Maybe the game focuses on blue team and the chiefs early years or not Chief at all and just focus on the Spartans. I do not want another Halo Wars or X-com style game. Would love for Halo to maybe become a third-person adventure or Action RPG game.
  • No. Don't ruin halo by making it another generic 3rd person game where I have to stare at master chiefs ass for 30 hours.
  • The wording makes it sound like it's not necessarily game related. Could be something to tie into Infinite as a companion project.
