Bungie Hiring Contract Writer, Probably for Next Halo Title
Bungie, the amazing team behind the Halo franchise, is looking to hire a contract writer for roughly 9 months. One of the requirements is that this person is knowledgeable and passionate about both Halo: Combat Evolved and Halo 2.
Why is that a requirement? Most likely 'cause this person's being hired to work on the next Halo title, and if they're being hired for 9 months, we're probably not gonna see a Halo 3 until 2007. This makes it a bit more likely the next Halo game will be released in tandem with the film.
Anyway, you can find the full details here.
Edit: A Halo.Bungie.Org staff member contacted me via e-mail, and informed me that the writer position is not for the next Halo title. Thanks for the correction.
Edit #2: So I've been doing some further thinking, and perhaps this contract writer is for the next Halo novel. Bungie's mentioned they might be doing, or looking into doing, more of those, so you never know.
