A new Halo project is seemingly in the works according to a 343 Industries job listing. 

The job listing (opens in new tab) on the Microsoft careers page calls for a senior producer to "help develop a new project in the Halo Universe." As spotted on Twitter by Klobrille (via Windows Central (opens in new tab)), the listing was posted on June 3 and does seem to suggest that this new Halo project could already be underway.

As one of the most anticipated games coming to Microsoft's upcoming next-gen console, Halo Infinite (opens in new tab) is set to be a big launch title for the Xbox Series X (opens in new tab), which is currently still due to release Holiday 2020. At this moment in time, it's hard to say what this new project could be, or whether it's in some way tied to Halo Infinite. The fact that it lists it's "new" could point towards it being a completely separate game set in the Halo universe, with the potential for it to be a spin-off of some kind.

Halo Infinite is said to feature multiplayer modes, and while plenty of rumours have circulated (opens in new tab) in the past, we don't know too much about what these modes will offer. It's unlikely that the job listing is referring to Infinite's multiplayer, but it'll still be interesting to see how it shape up when the game launches. 

Set to also release on the Xbox One, Halo Infinite is coming to Xbox Game Pass when it releases this year, and will also be compatible with the next-gen console's Smart Delivery technology. This feature means that if you buy a copy of the game on Xbox Series X, you can also play it on Xbox One, and vice versa. Smart Delivery also adjusts the game to the console you're running it on so you can get the best experience. 

While we don't know for certain at this stage what this project is, it's exciting to see something is in the works nonetheless. 

Here are all of the upcoming Xbox Series X games (opens in new tab) we know about.

I started out writing for the games section of a student-run website as an undergrad, and continued to write about games in my free time during retail and temp jobs for a number of years. Eventually, I earned an MA in magazine journalism at Cardiff University, and soon after got my first official role in the industry as a content editor for Stuff magazine. After writing about all things tech and games-related, I then did a brief stint as a freelancer before I landed my role as a staff writer here at GamesRadar+. Now I get to write features, previews, and reviews, and when I'm not doing that, you can usually find me lost in any one of the Dragon Age or Mass Effect games, tucking into another delightful indie, or drinking far too much tea for my own good.
