Rockstar North hiring programmers for console, DS, PSP and mobile

Looks like Rockstar North’s hiring for a Physics Programmer position with PS3, Xbox 360, and Wii development experience. No biggie, right?

Well, that’s not all – it’s also hiring for a Junior Physics Programmer, with console, handheld and mobile experience.

That’s the interesting part, which means – obviously – that there is something new in the works or a possible port heading our way.

Both listings were posted over on Gamasutra (via G4). Of course, the listings don’t mention whether the positions are for a new IP or one currently in the works, so we’ll send a mail off and see if anyone gets back with us.

Still -  Rockstar is no stranger to Wii or handhelds.  Manhunt 2 and Bully: Scholarship Edition were released for Wii and GTA: Chinatown Wars was released for DS, PSP and mobile.

Hopefully, it’s something new entirely.

    Its pretty amazing how R* did chinatown wars for Nintendo DS and that was their first game for DS. Most developers fuck up their first game for a new platform then blame it on the platform XD But R* made an amazing game

    I know that the guy who animated those 8 Days leaks, went onto Rockstar North. So I expect he is working on Agent.

    I expect any next-gen programmer will be working on Agent, if it isn;t vapourware.
