According to a post originally published on LinkedIn, it looks like Rockstar Games is working on a brand new VR title headed by Sydney based studio Video Games Deluxe. Video Games Deluxe is a developer from Pyrmont, Sydney established by Brendan McNamara of Team Bondi, the developer behind L.A. Noire. Video Games Deluxe recently completed the multi-platform release of L.A. Noire: The VR Case Files and is reportedly working on a brand new and ‘exciting’ project that will require new Senior Programmers an Engine Programmer, a Designer, and an Animator.
While we don’t have any more details on the new project thus far, many Rockstar fans are speculating that this could be a project for next-generation consoles, since they’re only months away from release now. Others suggest that a standalone GTA experience, perhaps set in one of the various existing GTA maps like Los Santos or Vice City could be in the works. A slightly less exciting prediction is that it could simply be a VR port of GTA V or RDR 2, building upon the first-person perspective option that is already built into each title. Only time will tell for now!
