Company issues score of new Natal-related job vacancies

A surge of new Microsoft Game Studios recruitment ads have given a clearer picture of Microsoft’s ambitions for Natal game development.

Ten days ago Develop reported that Microsoft had listed 25 job vacancies for Natal development and its Halo division, 343 Industries.

In the intervening days, Microsoft has published another 29 new job vacancies.

Fourteen of those are centred on Natal game development, with another six linked to 343 Industries. One of the new listings, however, is for a lead producer for various Epic Games properties. More on that can be found here.

Microsoft has in the past few weeks conducted secret Natal demos in order to drive development support for its 3D camera peripheral.
 
The move comes ahead of the planned November 2010 launch for the innovative device.
