Halo 5 development seems to be picking up speed, especially in the multiplayer department, as suggested by a new job post published by Microsoft.
It follows WalMart posting a retail listing for Halo on Xbox One. The product page came with a blanket October release date, which is probably totally wrong.
In this post for a Senior Multiplayer Designer, 343 Industries calls on someone to, “be responsible for implementation and execution of features within the competitive multiplayer [PVP] experience.”
Listed responsibilities include, “balancing and tuning existing competitive experiences, creating, developing, and delivering all new Halo MP game modes.”
There’s little all beyond this, but the mention of new game modes is somewhat tantalising.
We’ll have more as it happens.
