LA Noire studio working on triple-A VR game for Rockstar

The developer behind LA Noire Video Games Deluxe is working on a brand new open-world triple-A virtual reality title for Rockstar.

That's according to a post by the company on LinkedIn last weekas spotted by users on GTA Forums – in which the studio celebrated that it had spent seven years exclusively working for the Grand Theft Auto maker. The firm is hiring for a number of roles at its Sydney studio, including senior programmers, engine programmers, designers and animators.

There's no indication if this is a brand new IP or part of an existing Rockstar franchise. The game is potentially one of the 93 titles that Rockstar parent company Take-Two is hoping to launch by the end of the 2025 financial year. 72 of of those are set for console, PC and streaming platforms.

LA Noire launched for PC, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 back in 2011, before Video Games Deluxe brought the title to Nintendo Switch last year. The firm also made a VR spin-off to the detective game – The VR Case Files – in 2019.
