Microsoft Hiring for "Next-Generation Project", Will "Change The Way People Play"
Posted on Thursday, February 16 @ 00:51:13 Eastern by Sebastian_MossMicrosoft Game Studios is hiring for a "next generation project" for the Kinect according to a recent job listing.
The studio in question is 'Platform Next' an unannounced group dedicated to Kinect that was originally spotted late last month through another job advert, along with another studio called LEAP. The job listing states:
The listing also suggests that the game will include multiplayer:
As well as obviously pointing towards a Kinect release:
But the inclusion of "next generation project" in the listing could of course be from someone who annoyingly still refers to the current gen as next gen. So that's why LEAP's separate job listing is interesting. Considering the two Kinect-related MGS studios started hiring at the same time, and the ads have very similar job requirements, it does seem the studios are related.
LEAP, however, isn't just a software studio, as the listing from earlier this month reveals:
So that means there's one MGS studio hiring for a "next generation project" to do with Kinect, and another that is prototyping tech that aims to change the way people interact just like Kinect did. While the usual helping of salt is recommended, the two listings do seem to point towards a Kinect successor and an accompanying game being in the works at Microsoft Game Studios.
Would you like to see a Kinect 2, or are you still annoyed that the first one even exists?
