It will still be untold years before we get to see anything from GTA 6, but we forget that Rockstar isn’t just involved in GTA games. We’re still just a short while out from Red Dead Redemption 2, but a new Linkedin announcement from LA Noire: The VR Case Files says that developer Video Games Deluxe is working on a new AAA VR project for Rockstar:

Having finished the critically well received L.A.Noire: The V.R. Case Files we are now gearing up for a new project, a AAA open world title in VR for Rockstar. 2020 marks our 7th year of working exclusively for Rockstar in Sydney and we are excited to taking on this ground breaking project.

We have a number of job openings in our Sydney studio including Senior Programmers, Engine Programmer, Designer and Animator. If you are interested in one of these positions or would like two speak to someone who works here about VGD please get in touch.

It’s not clear if this is based on an existing game—Red Dead Redemption 2 in VR, for example, would be gta 5 apk a whole thing—or if this is a brand-new title.Recommended For You

I am typically skeptical of combining the words “open world” and “VR”. I’m a fan of VR games, generally speaking, but the ones that I like the most are the ones that limit player movement as much as possible, like Beat Saber or Tetris Effect. I know that other people have gotten more comfortable moving characters through control sticks or teleportation systems in VR, but I’m not Episode hack one of them. Combining the notion of wide-open exploration with the movement limitations of VR seems tricky to me.

Still, I try to keep an open mind with this sort of thing, and perhaps there exists the successful formula for open world VR that I just haven’t seen yet. The relative success of Half-Life: Alyx was a major turning point for AAA VR, and I’m curious to see where the whole thing goes from here. Still, I wouldn’t expect to hear more from this particular project for some time, as it seems to be early.
