When Rockstar Games hit mystery game L.A. Noire was remade in VR, it was a hit. And it seems they want to keep that momentum going. The studio behind L.A. Noire: The V.R. Case Files is looking to hire more staff for work on a new AAA open world VR game.

The studio behind the conversion, Video Games Deluxe, recently posted on Linkedin. Theyre starting a new project for Rockstar, their seven year exclusive partner, and are looking to hire programmers, designers, and animators.

Having finished the critically well received L.A.Noire: The V.R. Case Files we are now gearing up for a new project, a AAA open world title in VR for Rockstar. 2020 marks our 7th year of working exclusively for Rockstar in Sydney and we are excited to [be] taking on this ground breaking project.

We have a number of job openings in our Sydney studio including Senior Programmers, Engine Programmer, Designer and Animator. If you are interested in one of these positions or would like two speak to someone who works here about VGD please get in touch.


Begin speculation!

Rockstar is best known for the Grand Theft Auto series and the Red Dead Redemption series. Both games are open world adventures. But the most recent editions, GTA5 and RDR2, are graphically intensive, and unlikely to run efficiently in VR. And both of these titles are third person perspective. Though yet again, so was L.A. Noire. And let's not forget that GTA5 does have a first person perspective option, which was added post launch.

The studio also has a few other open world games, like Bully, Manhunt, or Max Payne. Its possible they are looking to introduce a VR version of this game.

Alternatively, they might be looking to create VR versions of the original Red Dead Redemption, or of an older Grand Theft Auto game, like GTA4.

The fact is that the only clue we have to go off of is that its an open world game. This helps narrow it down, but not by much. The only way were going to know for sure is when Rockstar announces their next VR game officially. Until then, stay tuned.
