Halo 5: 343 Industries hires former Halo pro player

Monday, 13th January 2014 09:13 GMT By Dave Cook

Halo 5 developer 343 Industries has hired former pro Halo player Eric “GH057ayame” Hewitt.

It follows the release of this Halo 5 concept art.

BeyondEntertainment noticed that Hewitt had tweeted a flight boarding pass to Seattle, home of 343 Industries, along with a teasing, yet familiar quote:

He then updated his Twitter profile to state that he now works at the Halo studio:

Hewitt was formally a member of pro Halo outfit Team Carbon, known for their involvement in many tourneys and for coming up with Halo 4′s Team Throwdown rule-set.

Do you feel that this is a smart move; getting seasoned players in from the community? Let us know below.

    Pro player only for Halo 4? Meh.

    I’d love to see multiplayer that isn’t sci-fi version of CoD, but I guess Halo 3 multi (or even in Reach) was “too slow” for all the hip kids… : <

    I don’t think it’s a good idea because pro players don’t know what fun is…i played H4 and everyone except “pro players” were the only one’s playing after a while just to practice for tournaments
