Take2 closes Rockstar Vienna in a surprise combo attack!
Well, those who read this blog on a regular basis will know by now: Rockstar Vienna, as we came to love it, no longer exists.
The studio was closed on May 11th after no storm signs whatsoever. The crew had been working on two major Rockstar IPs, one of them close to completion. It remains to be seen what T2's reasons for the rather unorthodox timing where, but one thing it clear: the 97 employees that where kept from entering the site will most likely not finish any of the two games in Vienna.
We're all curious about the next steps regarding the products.
We're also enjoying the summer sun, so at least this part of the timing came as a welcome treat :)
Let's just see how fast one can compile a resumé with a perfect weather like that...
(shameless self-pimping coming up)
