The next Halo game development at 343 Industries is still pretty much shrouded in mystery, but today Microsoft published a career opportunity ad seeking a Sound Designer that sheds a bit of light on its audio features.
Noice. I love a game with a good soundstage. That's one of the reasons I adore Battlefield 3/4. Nothing better than those ground-pounding explosions that set the subwoofer on fire.
Speaking of sound, Lets hope they can make it BETTER. Halo 4 had the worst music of any halo ever. I don't trust 343 to do anything special soundwise, if they dont realise how amazing and iconic the original halo music is/was, they are idiots. I didn't mind the sound effects, some were improved (rifles) some weren't as good (gravity hammer), but the music was so generic, the single player was barely even memorable.
Sound should Always be used for interactive moments. It seems to be underestimated in a lot of games. We all talk about fps and 1080p, but great sound quality isnt brought up all that often. Shame.
Marty would be proud.
NICE! Halo 4 had much better sounds than the previous Halo titles before - ask my neighbours for proof! seriously though, here is a nice vid how they made these sounds: http://www.youtube.com/watc... http://www.youtube.com/watc...
Interesting... I smell a new race of convenant or maybe a new class of prometheans incoming.

I can't wait to hear all that STEREO via Optical Out... :/
