    Microsoft is working on something that "fundamentally changes the concept" of Xbox Achievements, according to Xbox Platform corporate vice president Mike Ybarra in an interview with Windows Central.

    "Those are all small things that we can do to the system, and the team looks at them," said Ybarra. "They're in our backlog of things that we want to get done, but there's actually bigger, more bolder changes that we have in mind. 

    "Nothing that I can talk about now, but something that fundamentally changes the concept ... we are working towards a bigger, more meaningful change about somebody's gaming accomplishments in history, as a gamer on Xbox.

    "[W]e can do a lot more to reflect and let people show their gaming history and their status. Whether it's somebody who only plays multiplayer in Halo 5 at a professional level, maybe they only have 2,000 Gamerscore, you want to be able to celebrate that person. You want people to be in the know. This person doesn't play a lot of games, but they're world top ten at Halo 5. All the way to people [with over a million gamerscore].

    "It's that range that we really need to look at and celebrate ... we're going to go big in the area of letting people show off and represent their gaming history and the type of gamer that they are, far more than we do with Gamerscore."
