Rockstar hiring to bring "latest titles" to PC

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

786 Comments

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.

No Caption Provided

"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.

I suppose the point really is that Rock Star maybe trying to do something for PC Sales. By "latest Titles" not counting Max Payne or GTA IV, this can only mean GTA V (Since it has to be optimized) and maybe but just maybe RDR.

Honestly though I think RS might be thinking about Steam style DD just like Uplay/Origin, they already have their Social Club which is their own exclusive product. Just hope that's not the case.

@marioSNAKEeyes @Tripwolf LOL you are funny man:))you talk like it's our choice to miss the game on purpose..like the developers port it on PC and we didn't want to play it..R* forgot the comunity they started with and now ignore us for the weaker platforms just because they are paid to give them exclusivity..so we are indeed the master race:))you have to admit that almost any game moves better,looks better,feels better and offers a better experience on the PC then any other platform..

@acelogan1989 @marioSNAKEeyes @Tripwolf Please. When gamespot post an halo article up, there is always some pc only gamer complaining about halo not being on pc. Speak for yourself.

Really?? like (almost) 4 years after the release of RDR you're thinking of us?(pc gamers)..I've already bought a ps3 and an xbox 360 in these past 4 years, so, thx but no thx......Seriously this is a lack of respect: after they force us to buy a console, they decide to launch an out of date game for the pc?????? shame on you Rockstar. Well I guess pc gamers can expect gta V to come out in December/2018...

Of course I'll buy the next gen consoles, but c'mon show us pc gamers some sugar Rock$tar...

@violeirolouco "after they force us to buy a console"

No, no one forced you to do anything. And they don't owe PC gamers anything. You complained about it not being there and now that it might be you're complaining about that. Get off your high horse and shut up.

@PlasmaBeam44 @violeirolouco are u dumb or just plain stupid? never said they owe pc gamers anything, besides when a game u want to play comes out only to certain platforms u are kinda "forced" to buy them, otherwise u'll just have to wait and hope for the release of a port, like 4 years later. When I said "force us"I was just emphasizing that fact. It's like when all u want is to stay home and have a good night of sex, but ur girlfriend wants to go out and dance,etc. U're kinda forced to do that in order to get what you want...were you able to understand, or do you want me to draw it to you?

Xoxo-->plasmy....lol

@violeirolouco @PlasmaBeam44 A better analogy would be your girlfriend is leaving for the weekend and you can go with her or stay. Then you complain to your friends how you were forced to go with her.

@PlasmaBeam44 @violeirolouco They do owe us something. They started the damn franchise on PC, it's basically a PC franchise. Good people stick to their roots and don't pretend to have no interest in their oldest fans and their own history. Good people care about all of their fans instead of saying: "We don't want to tell you anything. If we decide to give you anything you can pay for be happy. If not leave us alone." Only jerks act like this.

@LordCrash88 @PlasmaBeam44 @violeirolouco When people think GTA, they think GTA3, which was multiplatform. And not sticking to their roots was is exactly what got them so popular. Do you expect them to make another top down PC game?

@PlasmaBeam44 agree- you can't be 'forced' into buying a console. I couldn't. I don't care if others own them, but 'forced' doesn't really apply.

@PlasmaBeam44 @violeirolouco Well how would you feel if you didn't own a console and a great game that you are expecting for a very long time will not be released on the platform you like?not too good..and now after the game is outdated(RDR) they finaly think of us..that is s**t..and so will be with GTA V..when all will get bored of it cause once you finished it you can't do sh*t with it on consoles then they might think of bringing it to PC and then say they don't make enough money..ofcourse you don't..who would like to be mocked like that..you can keep your games for consoles there are other great companies out there like Bethesda,Activision and others that still respect our platform..

@violeirolouco Only 0.1 million sales for GTA 4 in PC, compared to PS3 and Xbox 360 approximately 10Million sales each. Why do they waste their time in making a pc port.

@victorcom @violeirolouco Yeah and if they bothered to make a decent port ON TIME and not a year later, maybe the retail sales would have been higher.

@victorcom @Kishobran @violeirolouco PC is daed. I heard that "argument" years ago. Tbh I hear it every year......strange that it has not happened yet......:P
Wake up, dude. PC userbase is much bigger than the console user base apart from the US...and it's still growing . PC gamers just want to play deep and good games and not necessarily CoD style games.....

@victorcom LOL Thanks I needed a good laugh. (Referring to 'PC is dead'). Tell Billionaire Gabe Newell that (billionaire both in private life finances and as co-head of Steam, I'll make it simple and not even bring Valve into the picture). Billionaire- hard to do on a dead platform. Guess he gets extra credit for pulling that off? lol...

@Kishobran @victorcom @violeirolouco Even Call of Duty Black ops 2 sold only 0.93 million. That's low sales compared to consoles. So port is not the reason for poor sales. PC is dead.

@victorcom @violeirolouco gta 4 sold 730000 copies on pc . 730000 x $50 = $36.5 millions .

who doesnt want to get $36.5 millions ??

source :
http://www.vgchartz.com/game/25503/grand-theft-auto-iv/

@acelogan1989 0.73 million is not a big number for a game like GTA4. Compare it to PS3 or Xbox360 10 million each(approx.). Where PC stands?.Most of the games PC sales are very bad.

By now, if you really wanted to play RDR, you would own either a PS3 or 360. Considering how cheap they are. Just saying.

@Puckhog04 Well it's not about the price but more of what it can do..thats why i chose PC platform as my favourite,not just because of endless mods and better online experience but the way it runs the game..the experience it gives..that will not be equaled by any console..not even next gen..and i won't get a console just for one game..

RDR on the PC would be the greatest thing ever. Playing such a beautiful game with even more beauty. I'm hoping at the least GTAV comes out on the PC. Want that game so bad :(

And to all the people who talk about piracy, I used to pirate, but I haven't pirated a single PC game for years after the popularity of Steam. Its not worth viruses, bugs, and lack of multiplayer.

@Gears_0f_L0ve I commend you for not pirating anymore. I've never pirated a single PC game, and none of my friends have, and much of the PC community can honestly say the same, not all of course, some only do it to show displeasure (I don't agree with that personally), activision and ea and ubi= they've all felt that before but they're all so good at enraging the user base.

@Gears_0f_L0ve If you still opened this subject there is piracy on consoles aswell so this is not the main reason they disregard PC comunity..it's all about money that consoles pay for exclusivity..this all thing with only on PS3 and XBOX sounds more like a conspiracy against PC..NOT FAIR!!!

Really hope they find someone. I don't want to have to wait some months after GTA V is already released to play it on PC. Red Dead would also be amazing on PC.
