Xbox Two: Microsoft Quietly Removes Hints To Next-Gen Console

By on

A couple of days ago, Microsoft posted a job opportunity ad looking for a ?super creator? industrial designer for Microsoft?s Xbox team. They mentioned that he/she would work on the next generation Microsoft entertainment hardware.
But earlier today, the career opportunity ad has been quietly modified, with all the references to the rumored ?Xbox Two? removed. The ad used to read:

?The Xbox Industrial Design studio is building a world class in house team. We love entertainment. We live for building transformative entertainment experiences that resonate with consumers. We are looking for passionate designers who want to help us create next generation entertainment hardware for Microsoft.?
?This is a design position within the Xbox industrial design studio. You will be joining a team that drives a vision and product development for Xbox hardware programs. The right candidate will be a ?hands on? individual contributor that will bring thought leadership, inspirational creative output, and passion to the Xbox entertainment space. In essence, this position requires nothing less than a ?super creator?.?

The new version of the ad, which you can find here contains the same Job ID (suggesting that it is the same post for the same job opportunity) and ?reads:

?Join the world class, in house Xbox Industrial Design studio. We love entertainment and live for building transformative experiences that resonate with consumers. We are looking for passionate designers to help create new devices and experiences for Microsoft.?

?This is a design position within the Xbox industrial design studio. You will be joining a team that drives a vision and product development for Xbox hardware programs. The right candidate will be a ?hands on? individual contributor that will bring thought leadership, inspirational creative output, and passion to the Xbox entertainment space. In essence, this position requires nothing less than a ?super creator?.?

Now, the reason behind the changes could be multiple, but there?s a high probability that either the original post was misleading and the company is not yet explaining its next-gen hardware, or they simply changed their minds and prefer to keep their plans a little more private.

Aaanyway, so there you have it. This so called ?super creator? is going to be working on unspecified ?new devices and experiences? for Microsoft, and that is all for the moment.
