Microsoft has referred to a next-generation Xbox again, just weeks after allegedly boosting security at its offices to reduce next-gen leaks.

Talk of a new Xbox appeared in a pair of job ads for software engineers at the company, which state that successful applicants will be required to test "the Skype Video Engine solution for current and future Microsoft Xbox platform [sic]."

Microsoft has yet to officially announce plans for a "future Xbox platform", of course, but has inadvertently referred to the new hardware multiple times in recent months.

A previous job ad suggested that the hardware would be launching by early 2014, soon after Windows general manager Brian Hall spoke about a "new Xbox".

EA's Frank Gibeau also made a bit of a boo-boo back in August, saying that next-gen consoles would be "coming out in about a year's time".
