MS hiring for Jackson Halo project

To "keep pace with development".

Microsoft has admitted that it's staffing up for its Halo collaboration with Lord of the Rings director Peter Jackson.

Internet detectives over at MTV unearthed job postings recently on Microsoft's website that mentioned working with "an external luminary" in relation to "a new experience in the Halo universe".

It turns out that even Microsoft couldn't brush that one off as rumour and speculation, so the company clarified matters thus:

"Since [the original X06 announcement], Microsoft Game Studios has been hard at work collaborating with Peter Jackson and Bungie on the development of that project.

"At this time, it's necessary to grow the internal team to keep pace with development. Bungie will continue to remain involved in multiple aspects of the Halo Universe with MGS."

There's still no real word on what the Jackson Halo game is, apart from mutterings in early 2007 about episodic content.
