Next Halo Game 'Already In Development'
343 Industries exec reveals work began before Halo 4 was released...
The company's franchise development director Frank O'Connor told CVG that work on the next title in the flagship X-Box series actually began before the current game was released.
He said: "A lot of people at 343 are already prototyping ideas and software and art for future Halo products.
"I can't say more than that, but work on the game started actually before we launched Halo 4 and continues apace as we cycle staff through the team's vacation breaks. We're excited about the next game."
Although O'Connor did not specifically mention Halo 5, Microsoft has previously confirmed that it is working on a new trilogy of Halo games.
And he was noncommittal over the possibility of a second co-op spin-off from the game, saying: "Spartan Ops season 2 is yet to be decided, we're looking at how the first season does.
"We got such great responses from Forward Unto Dawn and Spartan Ops that we're pretty happy with it and we're learning a lot of really interesting stuff for the future.
"You are going to see a spectrum of Halo support though the next year and beyond."
