343 Industries gives us a peek behind the curtain

“Halo” maker 343 Industries has posted a screenshot, above, showing “Sparth,” an “early exploration of a new location that features prominently in a little game project we’re tinkering with,” as part of an update on what the team has been up to.

“2014 is here and much is afoot in the Halo universe. This past year has been a time of great transition at 343 as we’ve moved our engine and team from Xbox 360 to Xbox One and begun building the next chapter in the Halo saga,” writes Josh Holmes, 343 Industries executive producer on the Halo Waypoint site. “We’re proud of what we accomplished with our first release in Halo 4 and now we’re focused on something much more transformative as we make the leap to the next generation of Xbox.”

When will that be? Stay tuned, he says. “We’re excited to share more in the not-so-distant future. Please be patient – we can’t wait to show you what we have in store.”
