    Microsoft said that the Xbox "Career" features we reported on were not in active development. But it looks like Redmond patented the systems ... just in case.
    Remember that Xbox "Career" system we posted about previously? It looked as though Microsoft had been working on an all-new system to showcase gamer dedication beyond Gamerscore, complete with EXP gains, and levels.
    but Xbox Corporate Vice President Mike Ybarra said the system as we described it isn't in active development. Regardless, Redmond recently filed this tell-all patent, showcasing many of the Career features we described. As always, patents don't necessarily mean products, and indeed, these patents seem to be pretty old, using Fable Legends and Forza Motorsport 6 as examples.
    However, the documents showcase pretty cool features and accurately depict the information we've seen previously, which seemed to be in active development as recently as the first quarter of 2018.
