The official Microsoft website recently posted a job listing on its career page specifically looking for talented people willing to “help develop a new experience in the Halo universe”.

It was also announced during the X06 event in Barcelona that the project will be under the supervision of Peter Jackson. A Microsoft spokesperson mentioned that the development of the new collaboration is well underway and the need to expand the internal team was needed to keep everything up to speed.

Unfortunately, Bungie Studios will not be a part of this project, which will appear as an exclusive Microsoft Game Studios endeavor. Microsoft is currently looking for a Creative Director, a Producer, Game Engineers and other specialists to join the team.
