Staff increasing from 50 to over 600 in the next four years due to lower costs, Government initiatives, FDI, Talent attraction due to name etc. Can Rockstar's India Studio become the largest in South Asia by 2021?

Note-Edit: Alot of Investments in the Gaming Industry is now moving into India, and China.

Who knows, it's still just another texture sweatshop though who don't have any real contribution to the games design or direction.

Well here's hoping that changes eh...

 

Would love it if some "side" project like a new Midnight Club (highly unlikely unfortunately) ever comes through our gates.

Is it really? Job postings on R*'s Careers page show positions for more than that. Programming, motion capture and animators.

These tasks look much more involved than simple art and 3D modeling. It goes deeper into the technical build of the game.

Well it looks like they're being farmed for the boring stuff as most coders will tell you having to do that stuff is sleep inducing, especially creating paths for EACH type. Curious about the blend animation style, that's what Naughty Dog use, have Rockstar ditched Natural Motion?

I very much doubt they've ditched NM. They were working on their own thing before NM came, then merged both projects, maybe they're developing upon what they have from NM.
