According to job listings over at Gamasutra, Rockstar San Diego is hiring for their next big project. The studio that brought Red Dead Redemption, Midnight Club, and also Table Tennis (one of these things is not like the other, one of these things just doesn’t belong) is looking to start work on an “open world” game.
The company is looking specifically for gameplay, network, and tools programmers to address the “challenges posed by large scale open worlds with complex AI and physics” and “the synchronization of the wide range of gameplay mechanics found in a Rockstar open world game.”
What will the open world game be? Will it be an existing franchise turned into an open world, or will it be a new IP? I don’t know, I just really like asking questions.
