A couple of job listing on Microsoft’s official career website indicates that the company are working to add new features and services to the Xbox One.

For this purpose, they are looking for a Software Engineer that will develop, design, modify and optimize tools and pipelines for the Avatar ecosystem and work with designers, animators, artists, and other content creators on the implementation of new features.
Moving ahead, Microsoft are also looking for a Senior Software Engineer that will build products and services that allow us to run innovative programs like the Xbox Preview Program. The candidate will need to work on high performance engineering team delivering the Xbox Flighting solutions to internal and external partners and has extensive knowledge in serving world to deal with existing and upcoming Xbox products.
