Bungie's got some new Halo plans marked on their calendars, but a job ad posting by Microsoft suggests that the company's "new Halo Studio team" is looking for a "highly talented program manager to work with an engineering team to help define the next generation of gaming software technology." Here's an excerpt from their job post:
"Microsoft’s new Halo Studio team is looking for a technical and highly talented program manager to work with an engineering team to help define the next generation of gaming software technology. As part of a next generation team, you’ll be instrumental in helping to lead the development of the engine that will power future experiences for the next generation of gaming platforms. .....You will also work to ensure we are building collaborative efforts with expertise available across the company, including the Xbox platform team and Microsoft Research."
Hmm, "power future experiences" for the next-gen--could they be referring to the Xbox 720? If Microsoft plans a Halo 4 on their next-gen platform launch, then that would give then a distinct advantage from their competitors...in, let's say...2012? What do you think?
