In the virtual reality gaming space Rockstar Games has so far published a single game, that being L.A. Noire: The VR Case Files by Sydney-based studio Video Games Deluxe. But now, development has started on a new VR venture, according to a recently found public LinkedIn post (via UploadVR) by the studio announcing new job openings.
"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," reads the short message by Video Games Deluxe. "2020 marks our 7th year of working exclusively for Rockstar in Sydney and we are excited [sic] to taking on this ground breaking project."
When the developer says L.A. Noire: The V.R. Case Files' work is finished, it is probably speaking about the recent update that pushed the PlayStation VR exclusive content over to the PC version and brought in improved support for popular VR headsets like Valve Index and Oculus Rift S. This looks to be the final change the studio is planning on making to the title.
The post doesn't reveal any more information about this yet-to-be-announced VR project. It could be an entirely new open-world game or one that is based on an existing Rockstar title similar to L.A. Noire: The V.R. Case Files. We could see this being a Grand Theft Auto V or Red Dead Redemption 2 VR port. The former title is already being ported onto next-generation consoles next year also.
However, it may be a few years until we hear about this project officially, since the LinkedIn post says its development is still starting up.
