Microsoft Forms New Team in Xbox Division to “Explore New Ideas”
Microsoft declines to comment on what exactly this team will be doing.
A recent job listing (via NeoGAF) for the Xbox division indicates that changes are afoot at Microsoft. This is following the departure of Xbox Live creator Boyd Multerer.
“A new team has formed in Microsoft’s Xbox division with a specific purpose: to push the envelope of today’s and tomorrow’s technology as we explore new ideas from the ground floor. It begins with veterans from Xbox 360, Xbox LIVE, and Kinect. But we’re growing as quickly as our imaginations can be translated into code.”
Later, Microsoft updated GameSpot on this new team but didn’t provide any more information on what it would be doing.
“We’re always looking for talented people to innovate now and in the future. We don’t have any further comment on this or any other job posting.”
What are your thoughts on this new team and what will it accomplish in the new year? Let us know in the comments below.
