Microsoft bringing Halo to mobiles?

Spartan parcel of the big picture.

Microsoft may be expanding the Halo series to mobile phones, if a recent job posting is to be believed.

"Do you love Halo? Do online social communities and console video games excite you? Do you love building scalable online infrastructure & websites for large and passionate audiences?" begins the alluring proposal.

"The Halo franchise studio is looking for a strong software development engineer with a passion for videogames and online services. We have an ambitious task ahead, taking the current Halo community and online gaming support system and bringing it to the next level.

"We're looking to blend console, web, and mobile to create an immersive Halo world that follows the dedicated Halo fan wherever they go," adds the post.

And that "immersive Halo world" will also be a "great out-of-game interactive experience" that provides the "next step" beyond the confines of a console.

The rest of the advert explains that working with the Xbox Live team and testing Live components will be key to the project. Perhaps this will be a portable wardrobe for Master Chief.
