What could the next project be?
This is where the details become scarce, as the job opening was very general, highlighting “new project in the Halo universe.” Of course, this paved the way for the online community to pitch in their theories, which eventually leads to waves of rumors.
According to Tom’s Guide, this job opening could mean that Halo Infinite is not the only Halo title that’ll arrive on Xbox Series X. The media outlet suggests that the “new project” might be a “real-time strategy game like the Halo Wars series.”
Meanwhile, other media outlets suggest a possible follow up to Halo Infinite.
