However, a job advert spotted on the recruitment website Monster, states that Rockstar Leeds are looking for an “Environment Artist”. 

The job requires applicants for “creating and texturing environment assets for the biggest and best open-world environment in the industry”.

They assisted Rockstar North with the development of GTA 5, so it wouldn’t be unreasonable to assume this role will work directly with the development of GTA 6, given the studio’s history.

With other titles such as Red Dead Redemption 2 and Bully 2 looming, it would be naive to rule these games out of the running for the role, but we can be hopeful.

That is all the news we have on GTA 6 for now – stay tuned for our weekly updates.
