New Xbox Avatars are on the horizon and it seems like Microsoft wants to expand their scope this time around. According to a new job listing on Indeed, the company is looking for a new creative director who will bring them to various platforms like Windows Mixed Reality.
Aside from listing responsibilities and qualifications, the post said the following.
Microsoft is looking for a passionate and talented Creative Director for our new Studio responsible for delivering Microsoft Avatars across all our platforms, from Xbox through to the Modern Workplace. If you have a yearning to create the future for all our digital selves, through a range of characters and styles, and you have ability to lead a team to produce stunning, high quality, real time interactive 3D embodiments, we would like to talk to you.
You need to have deep empathy for the end user experience, while designing for a service and platform that scales across a wide set of endpoints, developers and teams integrating with Avatars. We are very proud of what we've done so far with Avatars over the past 10 years, but we're just getting started and searching for a Creative Director to join the team as we focus on Mixed Reality.
It's great to see Microsoft's commitment to Xbox Avatars, but many may fault this dedication due to the lack of new single-player first-party exclusives on Xbox One. Hopefully the company is investing in all of these experiences rather than just this.
We don't know when the new Xbox Avatars will launch, but they should be coming very soon.
