Rockstar North Currently Hiring Game Testers

Although we still don't have an official release date for the game, it's widely expected to be launched before the end of 2012 and the fact that Rockstar are actively looking to bring in a team of dedicated testers would appear to hint that the game is nearing completion. Testing does of course happen all throughout the development process, however a full team of testers would be expected to check every part of the game - something which wouldn't be possible until development was complete.
For anyone who is thinking this opportunity is a dream job, be warned; testing is a long and repetitive process which generally requires something to be tested and re-tested sometimes hundreds of times over. We'd all love to play through GTA 5 before it's launch, but bear in mind it's a totally different thing compared to enjoying the game as a fan when the final product is launched. I think the excitement might start to wear off after you've played through the same mission 50 times in a row!
If you think you've got what it takes and you'd like to get your foot in the door of the gaming industry (with the best company in the business), head over to Rockstar Jobs and get your application in. Good luck to anyone who applies.
As for what this means for GTA 5... It just continues to back up our belief that the game will launch this year, most probably in mid-to-late 2012... Although hundreds of you think it'll be launched on May 24th in our Release Date Competition!
