Ruffian Games hiring talent for an upcoming Rockstar title
Ruffian Games is on the prowl for programmers and developers to help work on a brand new Rockstar title.
The news was first shared by the Scottish Games Industry before later being confirmed by the developer itself.
The most recent project that it worked on was Halo Reach in tandem with 343 Industries to bring it into The Master Chief collection as well as releasing its own title ‘Fragmental’.
It is perhaps best-known for creating Crackdown 2 but it is now working with the behemoth behind Grand Theft Auto and Red Dead Redemption.
The latter franchise had a brand new release at the end of 2018 and it is unlikely the studio would outsource talent to work on its biggest franchise in GTA – but there are still numerous titles Ruffian could be working on that would set the world abuzz.
In particular fans have been longing for sequels to Bully, LA Noire and Max Payne – all three of which could well be the next Rockstar title.
While many are hoping for a brand new release, the project could also be a port for an existing title under the giant’s name.
The positions it is looking to hire range from graphics engineers and a user interface engineer alongside people with “generalised experience in multiplayer action games”.
This could also indicate that the project has nothing to do with single player modes at all and rather it will be fleshing out the multiplayer experience for the unnamed title.
Ruffian is based in Dundee, Scotland which is relatively near Rockstar North’s base of operations in Edinburgh which could entail the former working with the latter as opposed to a division located abroad.
