A new job listing from 343 Industries suggests that Halo Infinite's free-to-play multiplayer could be getting some story-based content soon.
In terms of narrative, Halo Infinite's multiplayer doesn't have any other than the game's brief tutorial. However, that looks like it could change soon. As per a new job listing from 343 (thanks, Gamespot), the developer is looking to hire a writing director to help create "highly innovative and engaging, serial narrative content for Halo Infinite's free-to-play." They will also be responsible for hiring a team of writers and will be in charge of writing everything from "cinematic scripts to character sheets for casting to reactive A.I. dialogue, and more."
This new "seasonal story content" will leverage "existing Halo lore" and add "exciting new chapters to the larger Halo story."
On top of that, the new writing director is also expected to "work closely with the Halo franchise team to ensure Seasonal story content both leverages existing Halo lore and adds exciting new chapters to the larger Halo story."
Elsewhere, 343 is looking to recruit a monetization designer for Halo Infinite, who will help create "in-game initiatives to drive player engagement and long-term player progression, as well as a player-first store and monetization model."
Both job listings were posted in January, and 343 is still hiring for the roles, so it might be a while before we see any narrative content make its way to Halo Infinite's multiplayer.
