The next GTA game is still shrouded in mystery. However, its development might be picking up pace. This month alone, Rockstar posted hundreds of new jobs covering pretty much every gamedev-related discipline.
As spotted by PCGamesN, Rockstar posted 70 new job listings in the last 24 hours. According to the company’s LinkedIn page, there are now 307 open positions, with the vast majority of them having been posted in July.
Rockstar is now hiring people at different locations, including Toronto, San Diego, New York, London, and Edinburgh. The latter is the base for Rockstar North, a studio responsible for major GTA games.
The list of open positions on the company’s official website includes artists, game designers, product managers, engineers, testers, animators, level designers, motion capture developers, and dialog writers.
None of these jobs specifically mention GTA 6. However, words like “cutting-edge physics”, “massive open world”, and “believable vehicle mechanics” indicate that the company is now increasing its staff precisely to work on the new game in its main series.
In February, Rockstar confirmed that GTA 6 development is “well underway.” However, not many details are known about the game, apart from numerous rumors.
