We report a correlation between the isotropic equivalent energy of GRBs and their position offset from their host galaxies. This is possibly due to a dependence of the end point of massive stellar evolution on metallicity. If confirmed in further host observations, this correlation will both complicate interpretation of GRBs as tracers of cosmic star formation, and potentially allow a new probe of the astrophysics in high-redshift galaxies.
