Microsoft is working on a secret VR MMO
Microsoft and MMORPGs haven’t had the best of relationship in history, with the company approving and then canceling several promising games over the past couple of decades. But the software giant is giving them another go, albeit in a different format, as it has been revealed that Microsoft is working on a “mixed-reality” MMO in its labs.
The news comes from a job listing for a senior design manager that hints at the unnamed title and links both MMOs and virtual reality together in the same sentence. The game in question is being developed for both PC and Xbox and is described as a “massively social gaming and entertainment experience.”
The full job description is as follows:
Do you love MMOs? Are you excited about virtual reality? Would you like every Xbox user to experience your design every time they use it?

The Xbox Mixed Reality team is looking for an experienced senior design manager with deep expertise and passion around crafting immersive social systems and experiences.
