Rockstar Games acquires Crackdown 2 Developer

Rockstar Games has officially confirmed its acquisition of Crackdown 2 developer, Ruffian Games and rebranded it ‘Rockstar Dundee’.

The acquisition seems to have gone through on 1st October, with everything confirmed by the 6th, according to the Companies House Listing

The two companies have been working together for at least a year, and are now hiring, according to a job posting to work on ‘ unspecified titles.’

Although Ruffian is best well known for Crackdown 2, the studio has also recently been working with 343 Industries on The Master Chief Collection.

Kinda one sided

It’s unclear what the studio will be working on, but with their experience modernising old games, Rockstar may get them working on ‘Legacy Editions’ of their games… which is what everyone wants….. not.

Rockstar’s next release is GTA V on PS5 and Xbox Series X. Yaaaay…
