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.

Halo Infinite publisher 343 Industries is planning to release multiple betas in the lead-up to the game’s release later this year.

Halo fans had a rough ending to 2020, with the next game in the series, Infinite, being delayed until Fall 2021 according to 343 Industries.

Despite that setback, it appears we’ll get a chance to play the game well before that, since the developers are apparently “actively drafting plans” to roll out multiple “test flights” of the game before its official release, according to information found on the Halo Insider website.

Infinite is the next installment in the Halo franchise, and we could get to play it before it officially releases.

According to the info, 343 Industries is currently planning to use the Halo Insider Program for the multiple beta tests before the game fully launches, which will give devs a chance to find and fix bugs and other glitches that might have slipped through the cracks.

If you’re not already signed up for Halo Insider, the good news is that it’s as easy as entering your email and other information. To make things as simple as possible just follow these steps below to get signed up and be notified when the “test flights” become available:

We don’t have an exact release date for any of the test flights just yet, other than that they will be starting “later this year” according to the publisher, which could be Spring or Summer since the game is slated to come out in Fall.

Rest assured these should be announced well ahead of time by 343, and if you’re signed up as an insider you’ll also receive a notification in your email and on your Xbox account when it does happen.
