Microsoft is now advertising for a creative director, producer and “game engineers” to work on the Peter Jackson Halo game Microsoft announced at X06.

“A Peter Jackson-helmed Halo project was announced at X06 in Barcelona,” a Microsoft spokesperson told MTV.

“Since then, Microsoft Game Studios has been hard at work collaborating with Peter Jackson and Bungie on the development of that project. At this time, it’s necessary to grow the internal team to keep pace with development. Bungie will continue to remain involved in multiple aspects of the Halo Universe with MGS.”
