LA Noire: The VR Case Files developer Video Games Deluxe is working on a new triple-A open-world VR game for Rockstar. We don't have too many details about the project yet, but the Sydney-based studio says it's "gearing up" for the project to start.

What do we know about this new Rockstar game?

This news comes to us from Sydney studio Video Games Deluxe's LinkedIn page, on which the studio posted an advert for some job openings. In the post, Video Games Deluxe says the new game will be "a AAA open world title in VR for Rockstar". 2020 will mark the seventh year of Video Games Deluxe working exclusively for Rockstar, so the studio says it's "excited" to be taking on what it describes as a "ground breaking project". Details about the actual game itself are thin on the ground right now, as you might expect given that Rockstar hasn't officially announced anything yet.

The post also says that Video Games Deluxe is looking for a number of people to shore up its staff count to work on the game. These roles include Senior Programmers, as well as Engine Programmer, Designer, and Animator roles. If you would be a perfect fit for any of those roles - or if you know someone who would - then you should head on over to Video Games Deluxe's LinkedIn page and get in touch with the studio. Video Games Deluxe includes former Team Bondi members among its staff, most notably creative director Brendan McNamara, so the pedigree is pretty high.

When can we expect more news about this game?

Right now, we don't know anything about the game other than that it's a triple-A open-world game in VR. Whether that means the game is exclusively a VR title or will simply support VR as a primary function is unclear. Video Games Deluxe is a pretty small studio - it's got a staff of under 10 - so this could be a case of one studio being in charge of the creative input and another doing the so-called "heavy lifting" of coding, and actually putting the project together. At the moment, details about the project are too thin to speculate much. We'll bring you more about Rockstar and Video Games Deluxe's new project once we've got it.
