THE BUZZ: That’s right, you’re eyes don’t deceive you it does say AAAA and not AAA. Microsoft is currently looking for an executive producer to work on a “major Xbox AAAA console title.”

The successful candidate will be expected, “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.”

The full job advert reads:

“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 and, more importantly, creates a fun gaming experience for our audience. The EP will be responsible for identifying a great development partner who shares our passion and goals, mapping the product roadmap, all aspects of production, from initial concept development through retaining world-class production capacity to delivering high-quality games that are on time and on budget, and improving the viral performance of the games.”

EGM’s TAKE: This is obviously no ordinary console title. At first we thought it was just a typing error and the extra A had been added, but it’s repeated at least three times in the listing, making a mistake unlikely. With no mention of the Xbox 360, could this project be for the next-Xbox? That may explain why it is listed as a AAAA project. Microsoft is obviously going to be starting next-generation projects even if the console itself is still years away as games are not developed over night. It’s the AAAA part that’s most interesting.
