A new Rockstar Games job listing has been shared by the company, with the Grand Theft Auto developer looking for a new Video Editor to join its studio at Rockstar Games NYC – its headquarters.
While this seems typical, some fans and other outlets have speculated at a particular sentence in the job listing which they believe might hint at an incoming game reveal, or at least something that is new. Let me give you some context.
In the Video Editor job listing, a quality the developer is looking for is that applicants “must be able to communicate the emotional content and excitement of a game within a 60 second format.”
Some people have questioned what this means, saying that it might hint at Rockstar getting ready to showcase a game in 60 seconds – therefore a teaser trailer. And sure, it might mean that, but I’m not convinced that Rockstar just threw this at us through a job listing of all things.
A majority of AAA games have a large marketing process and budget, especially with Rockstar Games titles. We see trailers and advertisements for every single notable Grand Theft Auto Online update, and a lot of trailers are usually cut down from their original cut to between 30 and 60 seconds long so they are the correct format for advertising on television, radio, and mid-roll commercials on sites like YouTube, Facebook, Twitter and Twitch.
Although, the phrase “emotional content and excitement” is intriguing. Yes, the time is due for a new Rockstar Games project – and we’re assuming the next game will be Bully 2, as per insider leaks and rumors. However, when we’ll actually see Rockstar’s next project get revealed is yet to be seen. We are hoping for a reveal trailer and more information this year but there are no promises. Rockstar’s plans change all the time.
So, at the end of the day, does this Rockstar Games job listing hint at an incoming game reveal? Not on its own, no.
