The days of the triple-A blockbuster are over, for today the games industry worships a new goal – the quadruple-A title.
Well, that's if you listen to Microsoft, which in a recent job listing spotted by Gamefront used the term quadruple-A (or AAAA, to be precise) no less than three times.
Microsoft Studios (Xbox) is looking for 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,” the listing reads.
The EP will have P&L responsibility for a major Xbox AAAA console title and deliver the end-to-end AAAA title experience (Concept, Prototype, Greenlight, Pre-Production, Production, Release, ongoing revenue streams and a complete franchise plan).”
Those who believe they're packing the prerequisite number of As will need to be able to commute to Redmond in the US. And some other market experience – all of which can be found in the official ad.
