Rockstar Acquires Mad Doc

Rockstar Games Acquires Mad Doc Software (thanks Gamer's Hell) has word that the formerly indie developers are now Rockstars:

NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Rockstar Games, a publishing label of Take-Two Interactive Software, Inc. (NASDAQ: TTWO - News), announced today the formation of Rockstar New England through the acquisition of substantially all of the assets of Andover, MA-based Mad Doc Software, one of the premier independent development studios in North America.

“The team at Mad Doc Software is extremely talented,” said Sam Houser, Founder of Rockstar Games. “Bringing them within the Rockstar Games family will enhance our core technology and further support our commitment to creating progressive and innovative gaming experiences.”

Established in 1999 by Dr. Ian Lane Davis, Mad Doc Software has led development on and provided contracting services for triple-A titles, with a particular focus on artificial intelligence and networking. The studio most recently worked with Rockstar Games on the Xbox 360 version of the critically acclaimed Bully: Scholarship Edition.

“To be a part of Rockstar Games is an amazing opportunity for everyone here,” said Dr. Davis, Studio Head of the new Rockstar New England. “We’re eager to bring our expertise to bear in the character-driven, open-world stories that make Rockstar Games titles so uniquely compelling.”
