343 Industries Teases Unknown “Projects”; Are They Helping Develop Cortana?

Halo 5 Xbox ONE

343 Industries took to their Halo Waypoint blog recently to let the world know that they are facing “both exciting and daunting” work on not only Halo for Xbox ONE and the Halo TV Show being directed by Steven Spielberg but also more unknown “projects” which have yet to be announced in nature. They also congratulated the commemoration of Halo 4 which occurred between the sheets for some of the crew at 343. Could this new tease have something to do with the rumor that Cortana will be the voice of the Xbox ONE and Windows Phone 8 to compete with iPhone’s Siri? Only time will tell. Check out some hilarious and insightful talk from 343 below.

“Last month, Halo 4 turned nine months old. I know this because our studio recently experienced a sizeable baby boom. While I celebrated the launch of the game by hitting the virtual battlefields, several coworkers marked the occasion in a different, yet equally exciting way. Whether we’re talking about my merrymaking or theirs, it’s safe to say numerous bases were penetrated. And successfully, at that.

Game development is a curious thing. You start with an idea, frolic in a dream pasture where anything is possible, adjust accordingly until you’re back in reality, and then work your ass off building, developing and polishing what you hope will eventually become an enjoyable experience. Seeing Halo 4 transform from a small stake in the ground, into what we shipped, and into what it is now has been a fascinating and valuable learning experience, both for me personally, and the studio as a whole.”
