Free to Play is the name of the game this generation. It was proven to be deeply profitable in the last generation, and it will be seeing a great uptick in prevalence this one. Now, it’s Microsoft’s turn to jump on the train.
Microsoft posted a job listing asking for a Technical Producer to “drive the future of gaming through a hybrid of quality AAA quality games and service-based experiences, technology, and business models…support service components of a new game based on an existing, successful Microsoft Studios IP.”
According to Dualshockers, the first part of that is business speak for a free-to-play game. Also in there is mention of a collaboration between external and internal developers. The real kicker, however, is the mention of this being based on an existing IP. What Microsoft property could possibly be good free to play title?
