With GTA 6 underway, Rockstar Games has released dozens of new jobs
Development of Grand Theft Auto 6 is underway at Rockstar, and dozens of new job openings for the company have recently gone live.
As noted by PCGamesN, 70 new Rockstar posts have been posted in the past 24 hours or so. In total, there are 227 vacancies, with jobs ranging from Associate Designer responsible for “open world events” to Associate Dialogue Designer to help create “groundbreaking interactive stories.”
Job postings also include calls for animators, engineers, testers, and more. The jobs are spread across a number of Rockstar studios, including Rockstar New York, Rockstar North, Rockstar San Diego, Rockstar New England, and Rockstar India.
While it’s assumed that most of these new job postings would be for GTA-related positions, the jobs don’t specifically mention Rockstar’s upcoming open world title by name. One position mentions GTA+, the new subscription service for GTA Online that could potentially factor into GTA 6 in a yet unknown way. But for the most part, the positions, if they refer to a specific type of game, tend to mention “open world” games and all the different aspects and challenges that games like GTA entail.
Rumors surrounding GTA 6 have been circulating recently claiming that the game will be set in Vice City, Liberty City or possibly both. The game is said to be set in the present day and may feature a female protagonist to some degree. Last February, Rockstar confirmed that the development of the next GTA was “on track”. More recently, Rockstar outlined some of its future plans regarding GTA Online and Red Dead Online, stating that the developer “has been steadily shifting more development resources to the next entry in the Grand Theft Auto series” and is fully aware of his need to “exceed player expectations and make this next entry the best it can be”.
Reports released earlier this month that planned remakes of earlier Rockstar titles like Red Dead Redemption and GTA IV have been shelved, in part due to negative reviews surrounding the launch of Grand Theft Auto: The Trilogy – The Definitive Edition.
