According to a new Job Vacancy advertised on Microsoft’s Cororate website, Avatars for your gamer profile could be about to get some much-needed makeover time with Jenny Frost and POD, nowhere in sight.
Spotted originally by Dualshockers, the vacancy is looking for a graphics engineer that will:
..work with us to grow the avatar platform across all of our platforms, leveraging the power of the Xbox One, the far reach of Windows, and the intimacy of touch on mobile devices.
Further on in the description, it’s clear that Microsoft are looking to take advantage of the better processing power of the One, asking potential candidates if they are prepared to send Xbox Avatars on:
..their biggest adventure yet with higher fidelity and a bigger stage in new Xbox experiences.
Does this mean that Avatars are making a comeback? When was the last time you updated or even looked at your Avatar? I can’t even remember what mine looks like if I’m honest, it’s not even mine at the top of this article, can you guess who’s it is? There are no prizes for guessing and we promise we won’t ask you to Snog, Marry, Avoid.
Would this encourage you to spend more hard-earned currency on Avatar items, or is it something that’s simply had it’s day?
