That's funny – we could have sworn it was August, not April. It was four months ago, after all, that we reported on
Microsoft Game Studios' hiring push for director Peter Jackson's mysterious Halo
universe project. Yet we're still seeing postings for what appear to be positions on the game's development team. In this case it's a biggie: creative director.
A new recruitment listing on Gamasutra
states that "Microsoft Game Studios' Halo
team is looking for a superstar Creative Director to help develop a new experience in the Halo
universe." Of course, this could be another
project, but further reading reveals otherwise. Additional responsibilities listed include "[partnering] with key Hollywood talent to collaboratively craft a masterful game experience," and "[collaborating] with game play designers, story writers, game writers, and said external luminary to deliver on a unique game in the Halo
universe." We'll give you one guess who the "said external luminary is," and their name rhymes with "Eter Ackson."
