Max Payne 3 Studio Expanding, Rockstar consolidating Canadian Operations

by | @AttackFanboy | on July 10, 2012

Rockstar Games announced today that they will be undergoing a Canadian consolidation, opening a new studio in Oakville, Ontario. The studio expansion is being funded by Ontario, and will force the closing of Rockstar Vancouver.

“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 Jennifer Kolbe of Rockstar Games.

“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.”

The merger of sorts will bring together studios that were responsible for titles like Max Payne 3, The Grand Theft Auto series, Bully, and other Rockstar Games titles.
