As detailed and explained in some official documents identified for the first time by the editorial staff of TheGamer and verified by VGC, the Scottish study Ruffian GAMES, developer of Crackdown 2 and Master Chief Collection, last week would officially change his name to Rockstar dundee. According to the documents, the parent Rockstar Take-Two acquired a controlling stake in the company (over 75%) and changed its registered office to the London office of the company GTA, while Ruffian announced last year that he was working on more games together with the developer of Grand Theft Auto, Rockstar Games.
New job advertisements advertised by the studio were asking for people with “generalized experience in multiplayer action games developed for PC, Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and future platforms ". For the uninitiated, among other things, the studio has recently completed the porting of Halo Reach on Xbox One and PC with 343 Industries. The latter also hosts developers who have worked on both the Manhunt series and Grand Theft Auto.
The Dundee-based developer is best known for Crackdown 2 2010, as well as additional work on Kinect Star Wars, Halo: The Master Chief Collection, and Crackdown 3: Wrecking Zone. A recent report by Kotaku said work on the next unannounced GTA title was "still early in development" and that it could be "moderate in size" at release, in part to reduce employee stress and crisis, before being regularly expanded over time. In addition to that, did you know that Take-Two has registered the domain of Vice City Online?
