A new job listing on its Linkedin account revealed that Microsoft is stepping up its efforts to develop the Xbox 360 successor.
According to the listing, "the Xbox Console Architecture team is hiring for a Graphics hardware architect position. The team is responsible for defining and delivering next generation console architectures from conception through implementation."
The Graphics hardware architect is responsible for architecture analysis, key technology selection and architecture specification for Microsoft's next generation console.
Other job listings found on Microsoft's Linkedin account include posts for a "Senior Architect and Performance Engineer" and a "Senior Hardware Design Verification Engineer."
Those jobs are most likely intended for a new console, but there is a chance that they are meant for Xbox 360 design modifications and enhancements.
