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.
