    They are kind of stupid at MS games and only hire senior devs or higher. So if you qualify then just apply.

    Otherwise they are really weird in games at MS about years of experience. It’s a game industry thing. Age discrimination against young talent.

      Discrimination against young talent? I thought ageism is the norm.

      The rest of tech biases towards young folks...

      When I thought about applying for game dev position, it seems most established studios want you to have been through a release. Unclear how to get first release experience.

    Well, if you can’t really wait no longer. Microsoft has no other option I guess.

    Have you tried applying? Or even better, applying with reference?
