Microsoft Aiming to Make “Quadruple A” Games

According to a recent job listing, Microsoft may be looking to raise the bar in video game development by creating the first “Quadruple A” title for the Xbox 360. The term “triple A” is usually used in the industry to denote a title as having a large budget as well as a high level of quality and polish. The use of the term “Quadruple A” would suggest that they are aiming to create a game that surpasses current blockbuster releases by a considerable way.

Some quotes from the job listing can be seen below.

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.”

“Major Responsibilities:

-The EP will have P&L responsibility for a major Xbox AAAA console title.

-Deliver the end-to-end AAAA title experience (Concept, Prototype, Greenlight, Pre-Production, Production, Release, ongoing revenue streams and a complete franchise plan).”

As you can see in the quotes, they seem keen to emphasise that this game needs to be of the highest possible quality. It will be very interesting to eventually see the game released, whatever it ends up becoming.

What do you think? Do you think Microsoft is capable of raising the bar in this way? What sort of game do you think this could be? Let us know in the comments below.
