Rockstar Games seems to be ramping up the staff in its India studio. Rockstar India’s careers listings show around 40 job openings. The listing was spotted on Rockstar India’s careers page by business analyst Roberto Serrano on Twitter. The Indian studio is primarily responsible for support on games like Red Dead Redemption 2, and older games like L.A. Noire and Max Payne 3.
The fact that Rockstar is ramping up hiring in its India studio might indicate that the company is working on its next major release, which is widely speculated to be a new entry in the Grand Theft Auto series.
Back in February, Take-Two CEO Strauss Zelnick stated that Rockstar would continue to make single-player games. Zelnick’s comments suggest that GTA 6 will definitely have a single-player campaign.
“The folks at Rockstar Games intended to create a powerful single-player experience a story driven experience. And Rockstar has always been known for great stories and great single-player experiences and then developed in addition, a massive multiplayer opportunity over the past years,” said Zelnick in an earning call back in February.
Zelnick has also expressed that the next GTA game will likely sport a higher price tag than in the past. During the Morgan Stanley Technology, Media & Telecom Conference, Zelnick spoke about the possibility of pricing Take-Two’s games at the $70 price point. In India, that price would translate to roughly Rs. 4,999.
“We announced a $70 price point for NBA 2K21, our view was that we’re offering an array of extraordinary experiences, lots of replayability, and the last time there was a frontline price increase in the US was 2005, 2006, so we think consumers were ready for it,” Zelnick said.
