Red Dead Redemption 2 PS4 PlayStation 4

It's been a whopping five years since John Marston... Well, yeah, we won't spoil what happens – but you really should have played Red Dead Redemption by now. A sequel from Rockstar San Diego has always seemed likely, and fortunately, it looks like the studio's really knuckling down now with its next release.

Indeed, the fine folks at GameSpot have uncovered a job listing for a Graphics Programmer. In it, the company explains that it's aiming to achieve "state of the art" graphics with its in-production project. It adds that successful candidates will work with the firm's "next-generation graphics pipeline including advanced lighting and rendering techniques and special effects".

"This is an exciting opportunity to develop cutting-edge graphics and visual effect systems, working together with the art department to create optimal, attractive solutions for our games," the advertisement reads. Interestingly, it furthers that experience with PlayStation platforms is not essential, but certainly preferred.

There's no mention of the PlayStation 4 directly, but a separate promotion for an Animation Programmer does refer to Sony's flagship format by name. Moreover, there's an open Network Programmer role as well, which alludes to "open world game elements" and "dynamic multiplayer". Sounds a lot like Red Redemption 2 to us – hopefully we'll see it soon.
