GTA 6 Almost Ready As Rockstar Games Post Job Posting For Game Testers
GTA 6 has been the subject of many rumors, and given the exact popularity of GTA 5 for the past eight years, this is no surprise. Now, after months of cyber sleuths looking for light clues about the game and its potential launch, developer Rockstar Games seems to have dropped the biggest clue about it. Spotted by The National, the clue comes from job postings that Rockstar has posted at a number of its studios, namely Edinburgh, India and Lincoln for game testers to work on an upcoming project. Since game development studios typically hire testers in the later stages of launching upcoming games, the information seems to indicate that GTA 6 may in fact be about to launch this time around.
The job postings themselves differ somewhat between the three regions that are apparently looking for game testers. At Rockstar Edinburgh, eligible applicants must have an understanding and interest in the current gaming industry, as well as knowledge of the current crop of games, consoles and PCs. While that pretty much suggests the need for testers for new titles, Rockstar India’s job posting is slightly different. In the latter case, the studio is looking for those with knowledge and understanding of previous Rockstar titles, which suggests it could be related to a different project – speculation suggesting the next-gen port of GTA 5 is expected to launch more. late this year. , or a standalone GTA Online title.
However, given the growing number of clues that surface every day, the launch of GTA 6 surely seems to be on the radar. Hints so far have suggested that Rockstar will somehow base the upcoming GTA 6 on Vice City – the fictional version of Miami that featured in Grand Theft Auto’s very first iconic title. Some reports suggest that GTA 6 will combine several previous maps into a large playing field and also involve several criminal cartels. All of these are, of course, speculative, but it will be interesting to see if Rockstar ends up introducing a whole new playing field for the game that pioneered open world storytelling.
Even though the game testers’ lists allude to GTA 6, it will still be at least some time before GTA 6 actually launches. Rockstar has yet to launch any promotional events for the game, and all of this apparently adds to a potential launch in late 2021, at the earliest. The next few weeks should contain more answers to what the game will offer.
