Grand Theft Auto fans lifted after Rockstar posts a recruitment drive for game testers


Fans of the hugely popular GTA series have been given a boost after Rockstar Games posted an advert for GTA VI games testers on LinkedIn.

This has been the longest fans of the game have waited for a new version to come out. It has been more than six years since GTA V was first released on the PlayStation3 and Xbox 360.

The game is considered to be one of the greats of all time and fans will be feverish to get their hands on the new release, and seeing as testers are now required, it might be closer than fans think.

Rockstar Games' talent acquisition lead Kiran Kumar posted an advertisement on LinkedIn calling game testers at a recruitment drive at Pune on November 16-17.

It read: "Would you like an opportunity to work amongst some of the most creative talents in the video game industry?"

This bolsters the claim made by actor Steven Ogg -- who played Trevor in GTA V -- that the sixth version will be out 'soon.' During a panel at the Brazil Game Show, Ogg said that Rockstar takes '7-8 years to make, do the math.'

In October last year, Rockstar Games' co-founder Dan Houser had made it clear that he is happy to not release the game during the 'age of Trump'.

He added: "It's really unclear what we would even do with it, let alone how upset people would get with whatever we did, both intense liberal progression and intense conservatism are both very militant, and very angry. It is scary but it's also strange, and yet both of them seem occasionally to veer towards the absurd."


The speculation around the release date for GTA VI is believed to coincide with the release of PlayStation 5, which is expected to be between October and December 2020.

Rockstar will do everything in their power to not rush the release, as GTA VI is expected to be one of the biggest game launches in history.

For now, we will wait for response from the testers, and start the countdown for GTA VI.
