Microsoft possibly working on increasing productivity in games development.
Although Microsoft have faced a pretty uphill battle against Sony for console dominance, there is no doubt that the Redmond based company is staging some kind of a fightback. Xbox One possibly has the best software line up this month and they managed to add hundreds of different features to the console.
Now according to a job listing on Microsoft’s official careers website, the company is looking for Senior Software Engineer. Apparently, the job description states that the company wants to “develop high quality, state of the art solutions that will transform the way we develop and test games” and that the candidate should “implement engineering best practices” and should also be capable in “working directly with users, educating, on-boarding, and supporting of our tools and services.” The candidate also needs to “participate in all parts of the software development cycle.”
Unfortunately, that is all we know as the listing does not give any other detail about what the tech/solution could be. Although the end user might not care or understand the process behind the development of games, it’s intriguing to know that Microsoft might possibly be taking steps to build new technologies and solutions that will make game development and testing easier.
