Videogames Deluxe, studio behind LA Noire: The V.R. Case Files. is hiring for a new project which it is calling a "AAA open world title in VR for Rockstar" according to a LinkedIn post from last month as spotted by an astute Redditor Monday.

The Sydney-based studio is hiring designers, animators, and programmers to work on what it is calling a "ground breaking project."

LA Noire: The V.R. Case Files is the virtual reality, shortened version of 2011's LA Noire for the HTC Vive. The 2017 release received generally favorable reviews on Metacritic.

Rockstar Games is the publisher behind many top titles, including open world favorites like the Red Dead Redemption and Grand Theft Auto series. Grand Theft Auto III is a particular title from Rockstar often considered to be influential in setting the standard for what open world games could be, so it seems fitting Rockstar might lead the way in VR open world experiences on a AAA-scale.

Since the team is just now working on building its ranks to gear up for the efforts this game will require, we expect it will be a while until we hear any more word on this one. Here's hoping for a teaser by summer 2021?
