GTA 5 developer Rockstar North are gearing up for next generation versions of Grand Theft Auto. Hit the link for all the details. 

On a job posting, it list the aid of a ‘experienced programmer’ join there team. “Rockstar North is currently seeking an experienced programmer to focus on core engine development”, and adds, “This is an exciting opportunity to develop cutting-edge architectures and high performance systems for current and next-gen platforms.”

Rockstar San Diego is also hiring for a physics programmer. This could also be related to Rockstar’s next generation technology.

as the descriptor reads, “RAGE team members work closely with game teams to integrate new technologies as well as evangelize best practices and process in using those technologies across Rockstars studios.”

Rockstar North and Rockstar San Diego are both hiring also hiring network programmers.

Many websites are reporting this could lead to multiplayer in GTA 5 or the rumored Red Dead Redemption sequel.

As it calls for “A networking programmer who specializes in the synchronization of the wide range of gameplay mechanics found in a Rockstar open world game”, and will involved, “working with engineering and design staff to integrate dynamic multiplayer into all areas of gameplay”.

Things are definitely going to get busy for Rockstar. What do you guys think. I would personally love to see a Red Dead Redemption game early next generation.
