Speculation on forums spiked around the world when Microsoft confirmed that it was cutting more than 10,000 jobs earlier this week and we learned that the Halo studio, 343 Industries, had been affected by these harsh cuts. Did this mean that another team at Xbox Game Studios would be responsible for the future of the franchise? Not necessarily, but now that option has been more than ruled out.
The head of the study Pierre Hintzehas posted a message on Twitter stating that Halo will continue to be developed by 343 Industries in the future and that future installments include both singleplayer and multiplayer experiences, so don’t expect id Software, Infinity Ward, or any other Xbox studio to take over. the Master Chief franchise any time soon.
