Many Grand Theft Auto fans believe that a few new Rockstar Games job listings could hint at GTA 6 actually being near completion.
It’s difficult to think of an unannounced game ever being as highly anticipated as Grand Theft Auto 6. It has been nearly seven years since the original launch of GTA V, but speculation over a sequel has never quite stopped.
The PS5 reveal was disappointing for many, with a GTA V next-gen remaster being announced instead of GTA 6, but recent job listings could suggest that a sixth installment is not actually that far away.
The GTA V Remaster was met with mixed feedback.
Job listings for Rockstar India, dating back to the start of June, advertise positions for game-testers, suggesting a game is nearing completion. Rockstar has long been known as a global company, with studios in England, Scotland, the USA, and India.
The game’s responsibilities are also advertised, requiring applicants to be able to “test games and applications across various platforms, gaining an extensive knowledge of each”.
The listings suggest that Rockstar are testing a game near completion. If a game – or, at least, large portions of a game – was not nearly completed, the developer’s focus would not be on game testing, but on broader development.
The job listing in full.
Confirmation of a GTA V Remaster was taken as a hint that GTA 6 is not particularly close to completion, but the new job listings have cast doubt on this.
It seems that fans will have to continue to wait for a reveal and official confirmation. Rumors thus far have stated that the game could be up to 70% complete, but these job listings suggest it could be even higher.
Rockstar Games have got a Grand Theft Auto Online update that plays into Black Friday with a whole host of sales for vehicles, businesses, and buildings.
GTA Online’s weekly updates are always something to look forward to for fans, as Rockstar Games rolls out some bonuses so that players can build up their Maze Bank accounts.
The bonuses, both for cash and RP, are the big attention grabbers from the updates, but the sales that Rockstar also drops are nothing to be ignored either. You can save quite a lot on a car that you want or a business you want to own.
With Black Friday getting underway in the real world – marking a few days of sales – Rockstar have also joined in the fun with some pretty interesting discounts as well.
Open Wheel races bonuses – 2x Cash & RP
As already noted, the bonuses are the biggest part of the weekly updates, so we’ll start there. This week, starting November 26, is all about Open Wheel Races for double rewards while King of the Hill pays out triple.
The bonuses for Open Wheel races are not limited to one or two select tracks, but you will have to jump into a Rockstar Created race to earn the bonus. The best way to check this is to simply join a race from the pink F1 car icons that are dotted around the map.
If a lobby then decides to vote for a non-Rockstar Created race, simply back out and find a different lobby. You’ll have up to December 9th to earn the bonus rewards.
GTA Online’s F1 races can be quite difficult for new starters.
