According to a job posting on the Microsoft website, it appears that Microsoft & 343 Industries are hiring a “Senior Producer to help develop a new project line in the Halo universe.” It doesn’t really provide any more detail about whether or not this will be a video game or something else, but given that 343 Industries is the current developer of the Halo series of games, you could reason that it is probably a new Halo game of some sort.

It’s Sunday and that means it’s time for another edition of Guess The System, Game, or Character! Haven’t played before? Here’s how it works. Each week we’ll post a different video game system, game, or character and shroud it in darkness. Your job is to guess which system, game, or character it is. Systems & characters will just show a silhouette. Games will show a silhouette and also provide a few details about the game (as game boxes/carts/discs look too similar to use just a silhouette). We also will post leaderboards with this feature so you can track your score & progress and compete with other readers. We’ll probably eventually offer prizes of some sort if there’s enough participation. Scoring will be as follows:

  • First Correct Guess: 10 Points
