To make development easier, Rockstar has split itself into a few different development teams. For example, Rockstar North is currently developing Grand Theft Auto 5, but another team, Rockstar Toronto are one of the development teams behind the Max Payne series, and it looks like they will be the team behind an upcoming next gen game too.This next gen game will come to both the Xbox One and the Playstation 4. No remarks have revealed any connection with the Wii U as of today.
As a side note, Max Payne 3 under Rockstar Toronto was a highly successful game. Max Payne 3 is a third-person shooter video game developed by Rockstar Studios and published by Rockstar Games. It is the third title in the Max Payne franchise and was released for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 in May 2012, for Microsoft Windows in June 2012, and for Mac OS X in June 2013. Development is led by Rockstar Vancouver in collaboration with the New England, London and Toronto studios. This is the first game in the series that was not developed by Finnish game developer Remedy Entertainment and not written by series creator Sam Lake.The lead writer of Max Payne 3 was Dan Houser, who was also the writer of Red Dead Redemption, Grand Theft Auto IV and Bully. I personally suggest purchasing it if you haven't already.
It was previously revealed that Rockstar San Diego, the devs behind Red Dead Redemption, are also making an open world game for next generation consoles, but Rockstar Toronto has posted up a job listing hiring those that are capable of developing for a "Large Scale" title. This puts massive intrigue in fans of GTA or RDR, but disliked the Max Payne series.I t's also apparent that the game is currently untitled, meaning that it's very unlikely that Rockstar Toronto are working on an open world Max Payne game.
Seeing as Max Payne is usually a rather linear game anyway, and that Toronto are fairly unheard of, it makes much more sense that this new development team could be working on a completely brand new open-world Rockstar game. With an amazing engine and a promising development team to boot, this may be a blockbuster for the coming season. Seeing new IP from companies like Rockstar is always very exciting, and I cannot wait to learn more about what Rockstar has coming for the next generation. The rabbit isn't out of the hat yet.
