New Microsoft job listings look to confirm the company is hiring for the Next Xbox console, and looking revolutionize audio on the machine. The job listing was obviously removed by Microsoft, although a google cached version of the page can be seen here. The listing stated:

“The ISS Console Multimedia Team, responsible for designing and developing the next generation console, is looking for a highly motivated and skilled audio developer. If you love gaming, game audio and music, then join us as an integral part of the team tasked to revolutionize audio for the next generation of Xbox.”

Another job listing from early last week states Microsoft is also looking for help creating ”AAAA experiences that deliver on 1st party goals and, more importantly, creates a fun gaming experience for our audience.” Below is a snippet from the posting, it can be seen in full here.

“Microsoft Studios (Xbox) is looking for a dynamic and seasoned Executive Producer to lead and develop a world-class team who will own the creation and delivery of a AAAA experience that delivers on 1st party goals and, more importantly, creates a fun gaming experience for our audience. The EP will be responsible for identifying a great development partner who shares our passion and goals, mapping the product roadmap, all aspects of production, from initial concept development through retaining world-class production capacity to delivering high-quality games that are on time and on budget, and improving the viral performance of the games.”

So, it appears Microsoft is aiming to “revolutionize audio for the next generation of Xbox” and create a fun AAAA gaming experience for their audience. Both listings also look to confirm the development of the machine, which isn’t really a surprise.

Thanks, Gaming Liberty
