By this Job posting http://www.compilerjobs.com/db/jobs_view.php?editid1=648 it is rumoured, that microsoft is planning a same native compiler backend for both C++ and C#.....
IF this news comes out to be true, then can C# replace C++ as the AAA game industry standard???
Or, is this job post talking about something else?

Or maybe, everything to CLI and then to machine code.

This should be pretty obvious if you read through the full posting, including the requirements and description of the role.

You can even force it to happen ahead of time by calling 'ngen'.
