Games and movies being leaked by resumes and job listings is not unheard of. Only recently, rumors circulated about Bully 2 being Rockstar’s upcoming project due to their call castings. Well, Sony cranked this category of “leaks” up to 11 with their new Linkedin post put up just yesterday. The position is for Senior Product Manager (Campaign Management). Reading further, it is indicating towards an upcoming PlayStation 5 campaign. Here’s an excerpt from the site:
“…you would work across Partners, Product and Engineering and contribute to development and growth of PlayStation Intelligence Platform. You will own the roadmap for next generation PlayStation campaign.”
We previously heard Sony CEO Kenichiro Yoshida mention in an interview with Financial Times that next generation hardware is “necessary”. Seeing that “next generation” is making so many appearances within a small time period, perhaps the PlayStation 5 is just around the corner after all. We’re guessing an E3 2019 announcement. That still aligns with our initial guess, stated in our PlayStation 5 analysis article.
The responsibilities of the position are, as suggested from the name, focused towards contributing towards the PlayStation Campaign. The applicant will also need to develop product & platform positioning, feature development roadmap and other marketing strats. It’s mostly a lot of business and advertising jargon.
The most notable requirement from the website would have to be the 3-5 year product management experience in the ad-tech. Applicants would also have had brought a concept to market. Basically, translate an idea to a commercially available product in a relatively short experience span. This is probably due to the fact that Sony wants someone capable of pushing out their “next-gen” hardware in the not to distant future.
