It’s too good to be true, but it seems that according to the report made by MSPowerUser.com a LinkedIn job listing suggests that Microsoft is looking for a Lead Environment Artist.
The report stated that it clearly came from G3D, a company who specializes finding developers for big publishers and studios of Sony and the like. With the major success of Horizon Zero Dawn, Guerrilla Games’ new IP that launched in February, Microsoft definitely needs brand new IPs for their platform.
However, down in the comment section at MSPowerUser.com, some are speculating that this might be a “fake” job listing to ruin Microsoft’s reputation and making the company look like it’s desperate.
We have reached out to Microsoft directly about this. The story will be updated once we get a response.
