Rockstar seeking animation programmer for “massive open world games” for “next-gen consoles”

Yes, the next-gen machinery has been running for a long time and, obviously Rockstar is in it. We all know that, at some pòint, we will enjoy a new R* game on PS5/Scarlett/PC, and now we have evidence that the company is on it.

A new Rockstar North job listing was posted by the company. Rockstar is currently seeking an Animation Systems Programmer.

We are looking for an experienced, talented engineer to help us in developing advanced animation systems for large open world character-based games. You should have strong coding skills, a good knowledge and interest in character animation systems, and passion for realistic, high quality character motion.

We are a global team of programmers and researchers who collaborate on pushing the boundaries of character animation on next generation hardware.

Agent, GTA VI, a new Bully game? We (still) don’t have a clue, so, stay tuned.
