A new Rockstar Games job listing may have further hinted at the historical context behind GTA 6 as they search for a character costume stylist.
Ever since Grand Theft Auto V was released, GTA fans have been questioning when they’d get a new installment to the uber-popular franchise. Anyone hoping it’d be followed up immediately by Rockstar was left wrong as the game developers finally dropped Red Dead Redemption 2 – a prequel to popular 2010 release.
Since then though, the focus has switched back to GTA 6, with fans clawing from scraps of information from wherever and however they can get it. There have been rumors about the story, characters, and even a release date, but there hasn’t been too much concrete information.
Now, though another new job listing from Rockstar may have given some more insight into what is planned for GTA 6.
The game developers are searching for a Character Costume & Wardrobe Stylist to take up a role within their iconic Edinburgh studio – the one that is renowned for working on the most popular titles.
The role’s job description states that candidates should have a “deep appreciation of the history and cultural importance in which clothing plays in society” including both “past eras” and “modern, global street styles.”

While the listing doesn’t explicitly say which game the employee would be working on, it does seem to link up with a previous ‘leak’ which stated that GTA 6 would crossover decades, stretching back to the 1980s.
Another plausible explanation could be centered around developing DLC for Red Dead Redemption 2 or even the medieval game project that the company is reportedly working on instead of GTA 6.
Of course, it’s hard to say one way or another considering how tight Rockstar usually keeps things when they’re working on a new game.
GTA fans will, no doubt, be hoping that they get their hands on GTA 6 sooner rather than later, but fans of Rockstar’s range of titles will undoubtedly be happy with whatever comes next.
