What we'd like to see from a PC version of Rockstar's blockbuster

A recently-posted job listing for Rockstar Leeds called for a 'graphic programmer' that would work to "help bring our latest titles to the PC platform".

Perhaps even more interestingly, the vacancy post has been swiftly removed by Rockstar, but not before PC Gamer grabbed the full description, which read:

"Rockstar Leeds are currently looking for a talented graphics programmer to help bring our latest titles to the PC platform. Working together with the other Rockstar studios, you will be responsible for maintaining the studio's uncompromising quality bar, delivering the highest quality PC experience possible."

The firm's "latest titles" that are yet to appear on PC include GTA 5 and Red Dead Redemption - the latter of which is now over three years old, and would seem the less likely candidate for a PC port in 2013.

According to the post, the position would also require "working with skilled developers on Next Generation games", which is another area the firm has avoided discussing with regards to GTA 5.

In a recent Q&A, Rockstar said, "We don't have anything to share about the possibility of a next-gen or a PC platform release at this time and we are completely focused on delivering the best possible experience for the consoles people have right now."

Despite this, a PC version of Grand Theft Auto 5 was listed by the German arm of Amazon, as well as a second European retailer.

The GTA 5 release date has been confirmed as September 17 worldwide.

Rockstar released the first GTA 5 gameplay video earlier today, offering he first glimpse of both single and multiplayer gameplay.
