Rockstar has today announced that it has closed down the Vancouver studio behind Bully and Max Payne 3, and will be moving the 35-strong team to a new custom-built facility in Oakville, Ontario over the next six months. This larger, expanded Rockstar Toronto studio will house the Rockstar Vancouver and Rockstar Toronto teams, and is supported by the Ontario government. This will add over 50 new positions to Rockstar's expanded Canadian team.
"Expanding Rockstar Toronto and bringing our Canadian development talent together under one roof underscores our commitment to building world-class teams that can make the kind of groundbreaking entertainment experiences Rockstar Games is known for," said VP of Publishing and Operations for Rockstar Games, Jennifer Kolbe.
"We believe a single Canadian team will make for a powerful creative force on future projects. We plan to add more than 50 new positions to our combined Canadian team, and are pleased to be entering into this strategic partnership with the Ontario government."
Can we have a new Bully game now then, please?
