Rockstar Leeds job posting hints at possible GTAV PC release
Authored by Rob Newberry
Rockstar Games is looking to hire a graphics programmer and this may mean good things for those of us hoping for a Grand Theft Auto V PC release. In a post on their website, Rockstar Leeds announced they were, “currently looking for a talented graphics programmer to help bring our latest titles to the PC platform.” Not only will the position be at Leeds, but will be working with other Rockstar studios, and, “maintaining the studio’s uncompromising quality bar, delivering the highest quality PC experience possible.”
A posting like this could mean good things for a PC port of the upcoming GTA title, or even a long waited Red Dead Redemption Windows version – but this is more unlikely as the console engine was particularly buggy and would most likely need to be rebuilt from the ground up. One thing to note is that the position mentions “Next Generation games”, meaning Rockstar could be committed to continuing the ports long after the PS4 and Xbox One hit the market.
Typically GTA titles have launched on PC months after the console games have been released, so it’s possible we could see and hear something about a Windows version in the near future.
Full screencap on the position is posted below.
Stay tuned for the GTAV gameplay trailer today at 10am EST.
