Microsoft Job Posting Hints at Halo 5 for the Xbox 720?

ThisisXbox: "Microsoft’s first hint towards both a new Halo game on the current Xbox 360 and the next-gen Xbox console, Xbox 720, Xbox Loop or if preferred the newly rumoured Xbox 8, comes today via a job posting on the Microsoft Careers website."

This kind of a non story in my eyes, it's just talking about putting a halo game across multiple platforms, it could easily be talking about the PC. This probably should have been submitted as rumour.

This actually makes a lot of sense, I've been saying that Microsoft could easily make a Halo game for the 360 and the 720. Both consoles would use XBL anyway, do it'd be easy enough to play them competitively against each other. Sort of the way Final Fantasy Online was for the PS2 (remember the HDD add on?) and the Xbox 360 and you could actually play together.

Something tells me we might hear something on the next Xbox this year.

Ryse is now confirmed by Crytek as a next gen game, Remedy is rumored to be working on the next Alan Wake for the next Xbox and were getting things from Epic games.

I'm not 100% convinced we'll see it launched this year, but color me shocked if we don't at least hear something about it.

The job ad in full is definitely not a port to a PC, you don't need a brand new Art Director to start from a blank canvas for that. If Halo 4 was a windows 8 game, 343 Industries as a whole new Halo team would have taken that into effect from the start of development process not near the end of it.

I cant wait until we see the next xbox. Im sure there are alot of wonderful things to come from Microsoft.

I just hope I don't have to sell a Kidney to buy it. I too am really looking forward to the next xbox, I think everyone who's had it since launch now really need something new. Kinect has extended the life of the 360, but in my opinion it just made the 360 a next-gen Wii that kids on the Wii could upgrade to...

I really need a next-gen CoD or Halo, and the cross play so that the 360 and next-gen console could play together would be just amazing.

I hope they go back to their roots and put out some great exclusive core games. Getting pretty tired of the casual bs.

I hope kinect is already add on to it. Thst would be dope and keep the wifi please.
Also make it more reliable, unlike the 360's first couple of years.
Also more hardcore exclusive thats not fully a kinect game but utilize it like mass effect 3. Now that would be impressive and a big stepforward in the gaming world.

Well, the article says Halo "content". So there'll probably be some Windows Phone app similar to Waypoint, more animated shorts, maybe some viral stuff for the internet, so on and so forth.
