Rockstar Games purchases Ruffian Games

Development studio is rebranded as Rockstar Dundee

Posted on

Rockstar Games has announced that it has acquired Ruffian Games.

Based in Dundee, Scotland, the studio will operate under the new name of Rockstar Dundee. Terms of the acquisition were not disclosed.

Founded in 2008 by Gary Liddon and Billy Thomson, Ruffian partnered with Microsoft to work on the Crackdown series, and with 343 Industries on Halo: Reach from the Halo Master Chief Collection, among other projects. Ruffian’s team of just over 40 staff even includes those with experience on some early Rockstar titles from the Grand Theft Auto and Manhunt series. Both Liddon and Thomson will remain on-board as Co-Studio Directors of Rockstar Dundee.
