In a job listing found by Neogaf, it looks like Microsoft is working on “super secret” Xbox team. The new-found team is looking to collect previous members from Xbox development teams to push the bounds of what can be achieved.

“Changing the world with technology takes a special kind of person in just the right environment,” the job listing states. “A new team has formed in Microsoft’s Xbox division with a specific purpose: to push the envelope of today’s and tomorrow’s technology as we explore new ideas from the ground floor. It begins with veterans from Xbox 360, Xbox LIVE, and Kinect. But we’re growing as quickly as our imaginations can be translated into code.”

The job listing really doesn’t say much about the intention of the super secret Xbox team. It even goes as far to say that it’s a risky position and not for those “looking for a safe job”.

“Joining this team comes with risks. Most of what we work on is top-secret; you may not know what your new project is until you’ve accepted an offer. Not all of our ideas will fly. We will fail, and fail fast, on some projects. We will celebrate those failures because they are vital to making sure the right ideas take off in a big way. If you want a comfortable, standard-role job at Microsoft with no ambiguity or risk, please don’t apply.”

The most the listing says relates to Kinect and creating premium experiences for it. There are no details on specific games, apps, or intentions – just that it’s risky, it’s for Kinect, and that it’s a new, secret team.

Microsoft emailed GameSpot on Tuesday the 7th a statement relating to the new super secret Xbox team. However, it doesn’t give any additional information. “We’re always looking for talented people to innovate now and in the future. We don’t have any further comment on this or any other job posting,” it said.
