Grand Theft Auto V
Rockstar Working on "Cutting Edge" Next-Gen Project

Rockstar North may be busy working away at Grand Theft Auto V, but that doesn’t mean they’re putting all their eggs in one basket.

The studio is also ramping up production on a mystery project for next-gen consoles, according to a job listing for a Core Engine Programmer.

The position calls for "an experienced programmer to focus on core engine development.”

The job ad says the position "is an exciting opportunity to develop cutting-edge architectures and high performance systems for current and next-gen platforms."

It will require the successful candidate to implement all aspects of a game engine, from rendering and graphics to effects and lighting.

There’s more too. A role is also up for grabs at Rockstar San Diego for a Physics Programmer to create "cutting-edge physics and collision systems" and "work closely with game teams to integrate new technologies."

One of the requirements is for "prior experience driving and developing a physics engine.”

So, let the speculation begin. What do you think Rockstar is cooking up for next-gen consoles and perhaps more importantly, what would you like them to make?

Let us know below.

Nothing there really means next-gen, except the line about current AND next-gen games, which could mean in 5 years from now, and I'm sure we all knew rockstar would have next-gen games, so this isn't really news at all, unless you want to apply for one of those jobs (and actually have the knowledge, skills and qualifications for them).

Well it won't be another GTA.

A new Red Dead perhaps?

Last allegedly "cutting edge" project by Rockstar was L.A Noire. And, well, I'll leave it at that...

Well it might be another Red Dead, which was just GTA with horses.

So I would expect another GTA clone.

@9: Pretty mouth animations, awful rest-of-the-face animation, pole-in-arse character animations, texturing without 10 year old technology like, cloned characters, and graphics from 2005?
I'm sure they can do better :P

whoever gets this job will probably move on to something else before any developer really works on something next gen. More hype for something not even close to workable from a job ad is not news. But i guess it is good for page hits and ad views.

Who cares what the game is going to be? If Rockstar is behind it it will be gold no matter what.
