343 Industries is an American video game studio located in Redmond, Washington. It was established in 2007 as a first-party developer by Microsoft Game Studios. The studio is responsible for the Halo series of military science fiction games since Halo: Combat Evolved Anniversary, after original developer Bungie announced its split from Microsoft. The studio is named after the Halo character 343 Guilty Spark.

1st Logo (November 15, 2011-2021)

Logo: A sparkle reveals a blue metallic shape. A blue metal piece sweeps across the screen, revealing "343 INDUSTRIES" in the Handel Gothic font. The "4" tilts a bit.

Technique: Rather cool CGI.

Music/Sounds: Some dark toned mechanical sounds, presumably a dark whoosh. The Blu-ray releases of Halo: Nightfall and Halo: The Fall of Reach have the logo in a low tone.

Availability: Currently seen on the Halo games starting with Combat Evolved Anniversary. Also seen on other Halo projects such as Halo 4: Forward onto Dawn.
