Halo 5 hasn’t been confirmed explicitly yet but those wheels appear to be turning, following the opening of 11 new job posts at developer 343 Industries.
It follows 343 debunking these ‘leaked’ Halo 5 screens.
There’s not much in the way of juicy details, but the timing of these posts suggests that production is ramping up. This advert for Lead Multiplayer Level Designer makes no attempt to hide the project’s nature; stating that candidate will, “drive the design of multiplayer maps for a future FPS experience set in the Halo universe.”
“Our ideal candidate possesses a mastery of multiplayer map design and layout,” it adds, “with a deep understanding of the relationship between level geometry and the creation of a balanced multiplayer shooter experience.”
This Graphic Engineer descriptor reads, “This engineer will implement cutting edge features for the future of Halo, and will support other internal teams with their graphics needs and requests.”
We’ll keep our eyes open if anything else transpires.
