An apparent update on GTA 6 and a potential release date have both been revealed through a new Rockstar Games position. Rockstar Games is now looking to employ a voiceover director among other opportunities.
There are probably only two situations when hiring in this role, especially the former, which makes sense. One of these eventualities is the beginning of the voice acting and motion capture work, which usually happens in the second half of game production.
The other possibility is that this job has been completed, the people holding the posts have vacated as a result of this completion, and the positions are now vacant.
The latter is improbable for a number of reasons, but in any case, both scenarios imply that the game has been fully written. If this is the case, the game’s development appears to be very advanced.
One of the job postings reads, “Rockstar is looking for an experienced Director with a track record of crafting compelling performances for theater, TV, or film to join us in making groundbreaking video games.”
“If you are an accomplished Director in your field with a love of games, we want to hear from you. The successful candidate will join our team in directing Voiceover as part of the Production Department at Rockstar. This role requires a collaborative spirit, a passion for narrative storytelling, and a willingness to continue to perfect your craft because learning never stops. Rolling with the punches and the ability to handle quick changes with a positive attitude are essential. You must be comfortable working with different types of personalities, know when to ask for help, and understand that all work here is a true collaborative effort.”
Every studio has a different method for creating games, but generally speaking, the majority of recording and motion capture labor occurs in the middle of the game’s production, if not more so in the last quarter.
Before intensive testing is expected to start, games frequently continue recording and using motion capture until the last few months of production.

Unfortunately, all we have for now is conjecture, but these job advertisements have encouraged many to believe that the release date for the game—which has been pegged for 2024 or 2025—is real.
