While the advertisement doesn't explicitly state what game is being worked on, we have a pretty good idea. It's described as involving creativity, having an active and passionate community, and is "one of the most popular video games of all time." Does Minecraft spring to mind?
We'll have to wait until an official statement from Microsoft, but if this is Minecraft that's being talked about, you'll notice that they also mention it is going to be "across multiple platforms." A possible hint towards non-exclusitivity? We'll have to wait and see.
