On January 10, a new job listing for a video editor at Rockstar Games swirled the rumor mill again among fans thirsty for any hint of news on Grand Theft Auto 6 or Bully 2.
It’s been over six years since GTA V came out, and over 13 since the release of Bully on PlayStation 2, so naturally players are itching for details on new titles in the franchises.
In November 2019, a job listing for a Character Costume & Wardrobe Stylist popped up on the developer’s website looking for someone with “deep appreciation” for the importance clothing plays in society, and now a new opening has jump-started the anticipation once more.
Rockstar video editor job listing
The new post asks for a video editor “to communicate the emotional content and excitement of a game within a 60 second format” – something that caused many to wonder if it could be for Bully 2 or GTA VI.
It also requested that the hire has "experience with both drama and documentary and able to craft a compelling narrative.”
Infamous Rockstar YouTuber TheNathanNS has also speculated that it could be something Red Dead Redemption related due to the nature of the “drama and emotional” comments in the listing.
IMO this could be Red Dead related because of the "drama and emotional content", as GTA and Bully's trailers are fairly light hearted while RDR's trailers were constantly serious/dramatic.

It could also be for a new game set in medieval times, if a “leak” posted onto Reddit in November 2019 is to be believed.
The rumor stated that Rockstar’s next project will focus heavily on sword fighting and duelling, and will release between January and March 2021.
If the leaker is telling the truth, the reveal “isn't that long away” which could line up with the new job opening, and the developer needing to make a trailer for it.
As far as Rockstar’s listing goes, it’s impossible to say at this point what it could be – perhaps it could be as simple as an update for Red Dead Online, who knows?
As always, take every “leak” and rumor with a grain of salt until confirmed officially by the developers themselves.
