Barring any unforeseen delays, Halo Infinite will be out within the next six months across Xbox One, Xbox Series X and PC. As the final development push on Infinite continues, it looks like Microsoft is also preparing for a new Halo game.
The Microsoft careers website was updated this week, calling for a Senior Producer to join 343 Industries and work with the “Core Services team to help develop a new project in the Halo universe”.

The job listing doesn't give away much more than that, but judging by the wording, this will be a spin-off, rather than a new mainline Halo game, which makes sense as players have not been able to give feedback on Halo Infinite yet.
It does seem to be a game though, as the listing calls for someone with experience shipping Triple A titles. This isn't a call for someone to help manage other areas of the Halo franchise, like TV, books, comics etc.
KitGuru Says: It has been a long time since the last Halo Wars, so perhaps this could be the first sign of a sequel. It'll be a while before anything is ready to be announced though.
