Pro Halo Player Joins 343 Industries In Prep For ‘Halo 5’

343 Industries picks up pro Halo competitor “GH057ayame” as they continue to expand their team in preparation for their next big Halo project.

Eric “GH057ayame” Hewitt, a former Halo pro who competed on Team Carbon, recently Tweeted an image of his flight to Seattle, WA, home of 343 Industries, where he would begin work on the team’s next Halo project, presumably ‘Halo 5’.


His Twitter bio was also update accordingly:


Hewitt’s previous contributions to the Halo series include creating the settings for Halo 4’s official competitive playlist, Team Throwdown. In addition, he assisted with the Halo 4 Global Championship in Austin, Texas last July where he also worked on rules and settings and contributed to general organization and shoutcasting matches.

Late last year, Halo pros “Dersky” and “Neighbour” were also hired at 343 Industries.

They might sound like a small additions to the 343 team at first glance, but it should come as good news to the more competitive-minded fans of the series. Some might also find it comforting to know highly influential individuals who have years of professional play time under their belts are contributing to production on the next Halo game, due out later this year.

Thanks, BeyondEntertainment.

    Goodness me, I hear the words “Professional” and “Halo” in the same sentence and I cannot suppress the laughter.

    Wonder what they actually do at 343. Its unlikely a console players have the technical proficiency to code anything ;), haha just kidding. That’s gotta be a cool gig.

    Poor bastard… He gets to play/test/consult on video games for what I’m sure is a decent wage. I really pity him.

    I’m jelly.
    Good to know 343 realize how bad Halo 4 was…maybe Halo 5 will be enjoyable.

    Moves like this from 343 could sell me on Halo. When a company shows me that they are serious about competition, that shows me they are willing to buck current trends to keep a niche area of gaming alive. (And yeah, I’m saying that competitive is a niche area of gaming now – companies just aren’t profiting from it like they used to.)

  • GameFace

    That’s cool and all but he’s a “Halo 4 pro”.Not a real Halo pro imo. 4 was borderline cod imo. 5 will probably continue down that horrible path.

    Halo 2’s weapons, Halo 3’s maps and Halo 4’s co-op and it could be a winner.
