The company is looking to enlist 48 new recruits across the UK but only the Edinburgh site seem to have the opening for game testers.

The selected candidates would join the testing team and test out products of Rockstar North.


Rockstar's career page goes on to provide more detail, stating that the peson joining the team must be "passionate, enthusiastic and self-motivated".

The mere fact that Rockstar is looking to hire additional testers have fans speculalting a new release - one that they simply cannot wait to get their hands on.
