Rockstar North, the developer of GTA, is hiring network programmers. This may indicate that future Grand Theft Auto games may have online play.
The clue comes in the form of a job listing posted by Rockstar North, creators of the Grand Theft Auto franchise. The minimal listing says that the Scotland-based shop is "looking to expand their experienced and talented teams" with the addition of...network programmers.
Network programmers specialize in code that allows for multiplayer gaming via a LAN, wireless connection, or online. The ad in question has been up for more than a month, meaning that positions remain open. That's a sign the company is hiring for more than a few slots--which could indicate a potentially large project is in the offing.
