That’s right, Rockstar have just posted a job listing, looking for an animations systems engineer for next-gen hardware. The job is for someone to work on open world games. Notice the plural in games.
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.
It’s a given that GTA VI is on the menu for this new employee, but I wonder what else they could have up their sleeve…
