The lights are on
Grand Theft Auto V developer Rockstar North in Edinburgh, Scotland is hiring for, "core engine development."
"This is an exciting opportunity to develop cutting-edge architectures and high performance systems for current and next-gen platforms," reads the listing for the core engine programmer position.
The studio is also hiring a character animator and physics programmer (neither of which mention next-gen development), as well as other positions.
Furthermore, Rockstar San Diego is also looking for a network programmer for the, "synchronization of the wide range of gameplay mechanics found in a Rockstar open world game." Whether this refers to Grand Theft Auto V or another title, is unknown.

Good to get a head start on next gen. And whatever Rockstar does is usually gold anyway.
ah~ I wish I live in Edinburgh.
I can't imagine what a new engine would look like.
No wonder, what with the sheer mind-boggling size of GTA V. If they're only working on this core gameplay engine now, will this delay GTA V any?. . . the release date is by spring after all.
Expanding the team eh? Sweet. If I were more qualified for that area I'd apply, but I'm not, therefore...I will not.
Woohoo! GTAV on PC and Wii U!
