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.

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.

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.

The Evo Shields in Apex Legends are set for another balance update that could come in Season 7, as Respawn are still fine-tuning how the armor upgrades to its max level.

Respawn brought the Evo Shields in the System Override patch in March, then made them a staple in the battle royale later on. Ever since then, the studio has been trying to find the right balance with the armor and its scaling defense as the game continues.

As for the studio, the hunt for that equilibrium to the item will continue as Respawn Game Designer Daniel Z. Klein indicated that players could have an increased damage threshold to hit before getting a fully evolved shield.

This change is still in the implementation phases, however, since Respawn need to tinker with the game’s networking to actually bring in the patch.

The Evo Armor values for max level will change, most likely in Season 7.

“We have a change planned for red Evo Shields for patch 7.0, but it required a little networking work (don’t ask; game dev is dumb) so we couldn’t ship it in 6.1,” Klein responded to a player who noticed there weren’t any changes to the shields in the Aftermarket update. “The plan is to increase the damage required to go to Red.”

At the time of writing, the Evo Shields need 500 damage inflicted to reach max level. That requirement is going to change, although the developer gave no indication for how much.

Complaints about the gear stem from how many people seem to have a fully upgraded Evo early in games.

Though this could be attributed to the typical gunfight fiestas that happen at any major POI after dropping into the Arena, the problem is going to get a closer look within the studio.

There’s no word if there will also be a change to the armor max Evo Shields provide, but it’s not likely since Respawn tuned that not too long ago when Season 6 started.

In any case, the company is hoping the next round of changes will leave Apex Legends in a healthier state as it concerns the popular Evo Shields in the game.
