343 Industries may be looking at additional help for the online multiplayer of an upcoming “Halo” video game for the Xbox One. According to a report from Dual Shockers on Jan. 12, the studio is currently seeking an “Online and Connected Experience Engineer.”
The individual who managed to get hired will be joining a team that is developing “a new experience in the Halo universe.” He or she is expected to “deliver the online and connected features” to a blockbuster software product.
The job listing did not specific the exact name of the project. However, 343 Industries previously confirmed that a new “Halo” video game, which takes place after the events of “Halo 4,” is in production for the Xbox One. The potential sequel was announced through a teaser trailer that was shown off during last year’s Electronic Entertainment Expo.
A representative from 343 Industries mentioned that the new title will be targeting 60 frames per second while running natively at the 1080p resolution. It should also use the Xbox Live cloud feature to provide dedicated servers support for the community.
Microsoft is expected to release the next mainline “Halo” video game sometime later this year in North America. You can check out some screens from the Xbox One exclusive first-person shooting title in the slideshow to the left of this article.
