Halo Infinite to get more ‘serial narrative content’ for its online multiplayer

While Halo Infinite’s free-to-play multiplayer isn’t doing as well as hoped, 343 Industries seems to want to enrich the game with seasonal narrative content.

The American studio is looking for a narrative director according to a job posting on Microsoft’s website.

Despite a strong start for Halo Infinite‘s free-to-play multiplayer, which saw a peak of 256,000 players logged in at once last November, the state of it is a little less rosy today. According to Steam Charts, only 11,000 players are logging in daily to compete. There are many reasons for the game’s desertion: limited content, too long challenges, too high cosmetic prices… But 343 seems to want to give back some interest to its multiplayer mode.

GameSpot was able to see a job posting for the position of narrative director on Microsoft’s website. It explains that the successful candidate will be expected to work with the various Halo Infinite leads to create “highly innovative and engaging serial narrative content” for Halo Infinite’s free-to-play multiplayer. The director will be responsible for creating a team of writers, writing scripts for cinematics and character sheets for casting all with the goal of “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“.

The return of a cooperative mode inspired by Spartan Ops present in Halo 4? Anyway, we shouldn’t know more about it right away, as the game is still in its first season. The second season, scheduled for this year, will only bring the co-op mode of the campaign as well as the Forge mode.
