343 Industries to continue Halo
 

Just skimmed the latest Game Informer magazine the other day and saw there were a BUNCH of job openings for 343 Industries for the continuation of the Halo Franchise. Looks to be a new company started by Microsoft I presume? http://www.microsoft-careers.com/go/...s-Jobs/190537/

I am definitely pretty excited to see if they can produce a clean product. Part of me says they will not, yet another part of me says now there are some fresh minds and ideas to bring a new look to Halo, so it could be pretty cool.

Thoughts?

Only 'new look' Id like to see is true 1080p 60 fps rendering, and for all I know that would require a new engine and/or hardware to pull off correctly. Otherwise the story, design and faithful gamer following are all there for yet another cash-cow title in this series. As for execution by 343, makes me wonder if the original creative minds of the series will have their brains picked and have some input on the future of the title, even on a limited basis...

As with most games who have a history as long as Halo, I think it sometimes takes a "changing of the guard" in order to get the needed rebirth. Unfortunately, its rare that when something with as successful and storied a past as Halo changes hands, it often ends in disaster.

Hopefully, they can change enough to warrant a new great game without completely dismembering what made it great in the first place.
