Microsoft hiring for “AAAA” Xbox project

Triple-A? Pfft.

Microsoft has been discovered to be on the lookout for staff for a new, AAAA title. And it’s not a typo.

Referring to it as quadruple-A on several occasions, the project seeks “a dynamic and seasoned Executive Producer to lead and develop a world-class team who will own the creation and delivery of a AAAA experience that delivers on 1st party goals and, more importantly, creates a fun gaming experience for our audience.”

Whatever it is, it’s an Xbox title, possibly next-gen (only “Xbox” is said, no mention of the 360), and it looks to be only in the planning stages; the EP is expected to “deliver the end-to-end AAAA title experience (Concept, Prototype, Greenlight, Pre-Production, Production, Release, ongoing revenue streams and a complete franchise plan).”

The opening is in Microsoft’s Redmond studios. Another listing, for a software development engineer, found last week, mentions “the next generation of Xbox,” so it should be pretty clear what’s cooking.
