Console giant recruiting staff for internal projects

Microsoft may be setting up two new internal studios for Kinect games development, according to jobs listings posted by the console giant.

Spotted be NeoGAF, the recruitment ads state the company is looking for a HR manager for ‘Platform Next Studios’ and a level designer for ‘LEAP’, which may be the studio name or an upcoming project.

The positions are both for work based in Remond, Washington in the US.

“We’re the people that developed Kinect and profoundly changed the way people interact with technology,” reads the LEAP job listing.

“Now our incubation team is ready to change the world again, but we need your help.”

However the new studios and projects have yet to officially be announced by Microsoft.
