It may come off as a huge surprise, but there are in fact people working on a next-generation Xbox. Shocking, I know.
Resumes discovered by internet sleuth Supererogatory today reveal several Microsoft employees and their positions on next-gen console development.
Microsoft employee and award-winning brand, web, and interactive creative director/designer Jeff Faulkner is acting as the “Xbox Next Gen Creative Director,” according to his profile.
“Senior Creative Director for Xbox,” currently “designing the next generation of entertainment,” is Jonathan Harris, linked here.
A Patrick Corrigan is “providing groundwork and integration for branding elements for next-gen Xbox on all forms of media. Ranging from print to UI across future releases of the Xbox platform.”
And [name and link removed by request], an “Xbox Hardware Intern at Microsoft,” is listed to be working on “high speed data buses to prevent electromagnetic interference in next-gen devices.”
All of these portfolio listings are from 2010 and onward.
