Job postings from developer studios often give rise to speculation: This is how it is this time at Rockstar Games. The studio is to work on a new video game that is thematically set in the European Middle Ages. Similar rumors existed a few years ago, but such plans did not actually reach the public. New finds from Reddit users are now making the rumor mill simmer again.


Rockstar Games is not known for releasing a large number of video games. Instead, in view of rising costs and extended support for the titles, the developers want to publish few, but good games. Especially fans of the current generation of consoles “suffer” from the motto of “quality instead of quantity”. It is all the more gratifying that at least rumors about a possible medieval video game from Rockstar Games are making the rounds again. 

Job postings indicate development am

Years ago, Rockstar Games was rumored to be working on a video game set in the European Middle Ages. However, none of this has seen the light of day. Gamers rightly assumed that such a game would not exist - now new leaks suggest one Reddit user suggest that Rockstar Games could develop a medieval game after all.

Accordingly, the game should focus on sword fights and duels. Rather unlikely: According to the user, the game should appear in the first quarter of 2021. The marketing machinery would have been up and running long ago. Except for his “trust”, the user has no proof of his suspicion.

Taking into account another utterance of a other Reddit users the “trustworthy statement” is at least somewhat condensed. He found a job advertisement that Rockstar Games is looking for someone who can create environments in “medieval architectural style”. It could be a coincidence and it does not confirm the rumors. Everything remains vague: the chances of announcing a medieval game are not particularly good today.

So which game Rockstar Games will actually develop is uncertain. It is clear, however, that a new project for next-generation consoles is in the works, because vacancies for an “Animation System Programmer”, a “Junior Animation Programmer” and a “Environment Terrain Artist”Rockstar actually switched.

The job ads are not related to medieval titles - it could therefore also be the GTA successor GTA 6. Or a completely new title, probably with an open world concept, which can then be supported again in the long term.
