Rockstar Looking For Programmers to Bring its Games to PC

on July 9, 2013 3:40 AM

Rockstar just posted a career opportunity ad seeking a graphics programmer to help bring its games to the PC platform, possibly hinting to the possibility of seeing more PC support from the developer in the future.

Rockstar Leeds are currently looking for a talented graphics programmer to help bring our latest titles to the PC platform.  Working together with the other Rockstar studios, you will be responsible for maintaining the studio’s uncompromising quality bar, delivering the highest quality PC experience possible.

The ad doesn’t specify on what games the candidates would work. Here’s hoping for a PC version of Grand Theft Auto V, but I also wouldn’t really scoff at the possibility of playing Red Dead Redemption on my PC. That kind of open world games always look better on a more powerful machine.

That said, the ad may not be related to the upcoming chapter of Grand Theft Auto at all, as the “responsibilities” paragraph reads:

Work within a team of skilled developers on Next Generation games.

Unfortunately GTAV doesn’t qualify as “Next Generation”, unless Rockstar is actually planning to bring it to PS4 and Xbox One in the future, of course.
