Australian developer Video Games Deluxe (VGD) has posted several job listings on LinkedIn as it gears up to work on what it says will be a “AAA” virtual reality game.
“Looking for experienced programmers to help us develop our next AAA Virtual Reality Open World game,” the listing reads.
It’s looking for a senior game play programmer, game designer, and seniior animator. The Motley Fool speculates that the project might be Grand Theft Auto V.
It certainly looks like it’s a pretty big project it’s working on.
We’ve not heard anything about a VR mode for the game from Rockstar itself, but you’d think the main studio behind GTA will want to tease announcements out over time especially if we’ve got to wait the better part of a year before we’re going to see the launch of the PS5 version of the game.
The other possibility is Video Games Deluxe is working on an LA Noire follow-up, which would make sense considering VR Case Files is rather short. However, it seems more likely that Case Files was a testbed for VGD to see what it could do with an open world Rockstar title in virual reality an experiment to gauge the logistics of doing something more ambitious. A full game port akin to Borderlands 2 VR seems more appropriate, but this is just my own musing.
We’ll keep our eyes peeled for any updates about the game, and update you as soon as we learn anything else about what the PS5 version of the game may or may not look like.
