‘GTA 6’ leaks: VR developer confirms new project with Rockstar Games – is it the next ‘Grand Theft Auto’?
A game developer known for working on a VR project for one of Rockstar Games’ IPs recently put up a job listing confirming that it is once again working with the “Grand Theft Auto” maker. Naturally, it has set off speculations that this could be related to highly anticipated “GTA 6.”
‘GTA 6’ rumored features: Next game could be played in VR?
Considering the number of years that went by since “GTA V” was released, it is not hard to understand why gaming fans cannot way to hear “GTA 6” announced. Unfortunately, Rockstar has yet to make that a reality. However, the rumor mill is not tamed by the lack of official updates about the next title.
Most recently, gaming fans got curious when developer Video Games Deluxe posted on LinkedIn about several job opportunities it is currently offering. The company is looking for new Senior Programmers, Engine Programmer, Designer, and Animator for its Sydney office.
What’s more interesting is the part of the post where the developer implied that their ongoing project is still in partnership with Rockstar. “2020 marks our 7th year of working exclusively for Rockstar in Sydney,” the post reads. Video Games Deluxe is known for working on “L.A. Noire: The V.R. Case Files” that was released in 2017. While not mentioning any specific title being developed by the company, its history with Rockstar was enough to spark speculations that it could be working on another VR project related to “GTA 6.”
Why this job listing may not be about ‘GTA 6’
Learning from experience, most fans are no longer assuming Video Games Deluxe’s active project with Rockstar is “GTA 6.” It can be recalled that the gaming community got very excited when a presentation from Rockstar opened the virtual PlayStation 5 event last month.
As soon as Rockstar’s logo came up, fans had a very brief moment of excitement thinking the announcement would be about “GTA 6” – it was not. The presentation turned out to be about another “GTA V” expansion, this time, for the next-generation consoles. Now, many gamers are more subscribing to the theory that the supposed VR project might just be another “GTA V” expansion or it could be for other prominent Rockstar titles such as “Red Dead Redemption.”
