Once again, GTA 6 is in the news. New GTA 6 rumors have been circulating on forums since Rockstar Games, the studio behind the franchise, posted several job ads hinting to the future Grand Theft Auto title which could be next-gen.
According to the job ads that Rockstar Games posted on the Internet, the games studio is looking for an artist with experience in designing transportation models, “including but not limited to Cars, Trucks and Vans, Motorbikes, Helicopters, Planes, Military, and Boats.” However, Rockstar mentioned that the models should not be carbon copies of real-life vehicles, but they have to retain the essence and the design feel of real-world references.
In short, everything Rockstar Games demands in its new job ads hints to a Grand Theft Auto title. In GTA games, we also have fictive cars but which look pretty much like real-life cars. With that in mind, the job ads might indeed refer to GTA 6. But wait, there’s more!
Job Ads Posted by Rockstar Games Hint To a Next-Gen GTA 6
In addition to all that we’ve already mentioned above, the job ads Rockstar Games posted in their search for an experienced artist also indicate that the future employee should conduct “the development of new approaches and workflows to facial tracking, facial animation, facial recognition, improving tools/pipelines currently in place.
Also, the ads mention that the future artist must also work on the creation of “next-generation worlds for some exciting upcoming projects.” That could mean the next Grand Theft Auto title, GTA 6 would be next-gen, so, accordingly, it would roll out for PlayStation 5 and Xbox Scarlett.
If that is indeed correct, then we would have to wait until the next-generation video game consoles roll out to see GTA 6 launch. Accordingly, GTA 6 would come out somewhen between 2020 and 2021 since some rumors reported that both PlayStation 5 and Xbox Scarlett would also launch in that period.
