Rockstar hiring to bring "latest titles" to PC

Since-removed job posting at Rockstar Leeds suggests company's newest games could come to PC.

Rockstar Leeds recently posted (and has since removed) a job listing for a programmer who would assist in bringing the company's "latest titles" to PC.

"Rockstar Leeds are currently looking for a talented graphics programmer to help bring our latest titles to the PC platform," reads a line from the job ad as captured by Rockstar Watch.

"Working together with the other Rockstar studios, you will be responsible for maintaining the studio’s uncompromising quality bar, delivering the highest quality PC experience possible."

The requisition also mentions "working with skilled developers on next generation gamers," suggesting Rockstar will continue to release games on PC in the future.

A Rockstar Games representative was not immediately available to comment.

Some of Rockstar Games' "latest titles" currently unavailable or unannounced for PC include 2010's Red Dead Redemption and this September's Grand Theft Auto V. The company has said a PC version of GTAV is "up for consideration."

Rockstar Games released the first official gameplay trailer for GTAV today. For more, check out GameSpot's editor analysis of the footage.

Good new as long as they do it right.. but with the next generation of consoles it will be a lot easier to port to a PC platform.. so hopefully we wont see the crap that we had with GTA IV..

If this means Red Dead on PC, I can't wait. I enjoyed the hell out of the game on Xbox 360 and I'd love to mod the game to death too.

Hopefully they'll fix the GTA 4 port too.

I think the reason why most of us PC gamers are so elitist when it comes to PC, is because we know how amazing PC gaming is, to have everything installed on your harddrive and never ever have to change CDS, or DVDs or have to do anything to switch games in and out and now with STEAM. Steam is incredible. Plus most games, if not just about ALL games are backwards compatable forever, with a few patches. Also PC gets Console emulators eventually to, so we don't even miss out on Console exclusives either.

To be able to have everything on one platform, to have mods and user created content that extends the life of games we buy. Like Left 4 dead 2 for example, we get the luxery of being able to make maps ourselves and or Download user created campaigns that are sometimes just as good as the original campaigns or better, because users have more time to sit down and create stuff as a hobby for fun, there's no deadlines for them.

To have all the options of different genres of gaming, like RTS games and have simulation games like ARMA and Stalker to choose from, not just arcade shooters , not just quick-time event games like uncharted, we have so many more options to choose from. Not just 3rd person shooters and watered down FPS games all the time, but here's the thing , we don't miss out on many console games either.. Just the 6.9% of games that are exclusive worth owning like Last Of Us. But sometimes those exclusives arrive on PC eventually anyway like Dark Souls and Mortal Kombat did. We also get Simulation racing games to, like Race 07 and Rfactor, that I prefer over GrandTurismo 5 anyday.

Theres just So many more options on PC. Its like unlimited gaming. I almost feel over satisfied PC gaming. Its a friggin hobby and an addiction almost lol. Pc gaming is almost dangerous for the player's health, because its just too good.

Weren't they a couple of years ago said that RDR will never come to PC and gave some retarded reason as a backup? Shift happens I guess, I don't mind...

I played RDR on X360 back in 2010 and the graphics and the frame rate didn't bother me that much back then, but there is no way i'm playing GTA V on X360 or PS3 so i will wait for a PC version.

I don't know why people are still complaining about GTAV not beinf on PC when we know it will be on PC. 

What matters is getting RDR on PC!!! THAT'S ALL THAT MATTERS.

grrrrrrr rockstar.......Red Dead Redemption should of been on PC. Hope it arrives. Dont be so surprisd, it took a year before GTA 3 was released on PC. But i am surprised that red dead never arrived and LA Noire did. Theres a reason why games like Alan Wake and Mortal Kombat and NBA 2K etc eventually arrive on PC. Because like it or not, those 50'000 + sales on PC are still worth it for the company, despite piracy. Besides when Alan Wake and other games etc are only $3 on STEAM on a deal, games dont need pirating.

RDR is already nearly three years old, about time RS pulled their thumbs out of their arses and gave the PC a bit of love. I remain skeptical.

If we do see GTAV on PC, i hope they look back at San Andreas, since that game was modded to hell and back.

GTA V would only make the most sense in the world to put on PC since it's even bigger than Red Dead

@nyran125tk It's all down to preference I guess, I far prefer PC but there is clearly a place for console. Not everyone can be bothered operating a PC properly and let me tell you - having friends who are PC illiterate who have bought a PC and constantly come to you for help is a pain in the backside.

@MatrixGamer78 Not too sure about that, 50-100 years down the road we may be getting new kinds of machines that run much faster than any pc could.

@teh_pwnager GTA 4 wasn't coming to PC at some point either. Popular demand I guess. Can't wait to see the mods.

@onuruca Yeah RDR wasn't as bad on consoles when it was released (although I'd buy a PC version instantly if they released it) but GTA IV was already pretty annoying to play on consoles. The framerate is atrocious in it on 360. Feels like I'm playing a slideshow when the action starts. The low resolution on consoles is especially noticeable after playing it on PC, too.

@bornej Agreed. Since PC gamers will have to wait for a proper GTA 5 port, a remastered port of Red Dead Redemption will suffice.

How a smart comment of you sir

Not hd? Yeah definetly not on hd even if it says 1080p on the box

25 fps? Of course sir you have more credibility than the developers saying it would run at 60 fps on both consoles... -_-

Terrible controls? Yeah how detestable is to play with kinnect detection of the body and those ps3 controls that have triggers sixaxis and pressure. sensitive i will play instead with the best control ever made a KEYBOARD!!!

Please do me a favor and if you want to at least be called "pc gamer" dont embarrass your community like that...

@fillup0 @nyran125tk you right, it does take some knowledge, but with Windows 8, it is getting easier and easier and easier to learn how to use a PC. I meen with Windows 7/8, everything downloads for you, all PC updates, sound cards everything just updates for you by itself. Only thing a user needs to do is sometimes update Motherboard Bios. The only massiv eissue I have with PC gaming , is the cords inside the PC are annoying.

@soulfulDAGGER @bornej I was more hoping that this *confirms* that GTA 5 was coming to PC more so than stating they were going to port RDR. Honestly, I think it's too late for an RDR port, but GTA5 is a MUST for the PC.

@wolfmgs They don't actually run in HD and that's a fact, they are upscaled. The FPS comment varies but for the most part, games are locked to 30 if you're lucky. Also, the controls do limit the games that can be done on console. Complex RTS, MMO or CRPG? It's not happening on console.

Also Kinect sucks as a gaming technology, deal with it.

@wolfmgs IT will never run at 1080p on current gen. next gen by all means. PS3 and xbox just upscale to 1080p. Its like a small picture is stretched out to a bigger frame.Thats way the picture is so blurry and looks bad from close up

YOu will be lucky if its 720p and barely 30 fps

@bornej @soulfulDAGGER too late? wtf dude! it's never too late lol....their little trick (Microsoft and Sony's) to keep exclusive rights for some years for this game in order to make ppl buy consoles didn't work on me,it never had and it'll never do
