Four MS employees working on “Xbox next-gen,” says LinkedIn CVs

Monday, 10th October 2011 14:58 GMT By Johnny Cullen

Four CVs from LinkedIn have pointed towards more evidence that Microsoft is on working on a successor to Xbox 360.

Jeff Faulkner is creative director of “Xbox Next-Gen” as of January 2011, while Jonathan Harris is “senior” creative director who’s been working on “Designing the next generation of entertainment” as of September last year.

Patrick Corrigan is helping to provide UI and branding support for “next-gen XBOX on all forms of media,” while Xbox hardware intern Joe Langevin is helping to prevent “electromagnetic interference in next-gen devices.”

A next-gen Xbox has been mentioned at least three times this year, with recent reports suggesting games are on the way from Lionhead, Rare and Turn 10, as well as Remedy and THQ.

Thanks, supererogatory.

    Companies are always going to be looking into future technology, some times as far as five years in advance.

    If this is happening, I can’t see it hitting before Christmas 2013 at the *earliest*. Most likely 2014.

    @5 Don’t hold your breath. If it wasn’t announced at this year’s E3, there’s no way its gonna make a 2012 release.

    So if they’re working on it now, expect to have a mid-range gpu from 2010-11 seeing as WiiU has a gpu from 2008.

    @ wasn’t 360 officially revealed at e3 then released in the november?

    i’m not desperately begging for a new gen, i just get excited at what the most talented devs on consoles could achieve with better hardware

    Yer. We might see a tech demo at E3 12, then a proper announcement at E3 13, with a release Q4 ’13.

    @9 said similar before. E3 2012 will announce working on, maybe even show some of what it can do.

    2013 E3 will be nothing but the new console and new games coming out on it.

    Released that holiday season.

    Me personally I have decided to not buy the new console day one this time, will finish all my games I got before investing in a new machine.

    This is sweeeeet! Sort of a PS fan boy (guilty), but I’m desperately waiting from some new hardware and games. I’ll be first in line for whoever releases their next gen console first. I just hope that its not some kinect driven sequel with touch screen controllers and only marginally better hardware then the 360, built for casual gamers.

    @7 lolol, lets hope not.
