Ok, I'm just kidding. These are not of any GTA game currently in development. However they are the work of one guy who recently acquired a job at the studio in Edinburgh, Scotland. He was kind enough to show us the work that he did that got him this snazzy job at Rockstar North as an enviroment artist. Be sure to read this topic to check out his work. If you think you're up for it, then why not submit your portfolio to Rockstar? Currently job openings are available at Rockstar North and at Rockstar Leeds, both developing another Grand Theft Auto title. One for next generation consoles, the other for the PSP.

Those pics were interesting, one has post office in (which is a british shop) it could be anywhere in the UK with that pic or just did that since he needed a shop, and some signs saying jubilee which is what some shops are called in london, so it might be in london or just another pic to throw people off the trail, but 2 british things that both include in london, so it might be in london or not.

And there is a bin with the word london on it, and arsenal football grounds, yet another london clue since they are a london football team, and are these clues to it been in london or a show off to show how the game is going to look.

Quite a change for him, from london up more than half the country to edinburgh, Well if those were what he made while working there thats a lot of clues, but if thats what got him the job I can only hope to see the real pics of the game, cause the detail in the pics was excellent, im hoping these standards of the pics will be in the next game. Shame the real places and cars wont be, unless rockstar got the owners to let the likeness of the company be in the game.

No those environments were not created while working for R* North, he made those to demonstrate to Rockstar what he was capable of, obviously he's a brilliant designer and that's why they've hired him. Let's hope he'll being working on GTA4.
