Rockstar Games, the creator of so many iconic games, is looking for environmental artists. The job will put you on upcoming projects to create “next-generation” open worlds.
The job listing on the official website indicates that next-generation games are in development at Rockstar Games. At this point, it is a no-brainer that the studio is working on PlayStation 5 and Xbox Scarlett games.
Next-Generation Grand Theft Auto 6 In Development?
The first thing that comes to mind when we look at the job listing is GTA 6. Rockstar Games released GTA 5 in 2013 so it is time for another GTA games to hit the shelves. Since we are close to the end of this console generation, it is safe to say GTA 6 is coming to PS5 and Xbox Scarlett. However, GTA 5 did release on last-generation platforms so we can’t fully rule out PS4 and Xbox One versions of Grand Theft Auto 6.

The (Probably) Fake Yet Interesting New Rockstar IP Rumor
A couple of weeks ago there was a leak via 4Chan that gave us an idea what a new Rockstar IP could be about, and it isn’t GTA 6. The new game is set in Miami during the 90’s. You play the role of Donald, a dirty cop with a Black partner named Morty. It is a semi-linear open-world game.
The new Rockstar IP is similar to Max Payne 3 in terms of gameplay design. It has stealth mechanics and allows players to explore to some extent.
