New Studio: Rockstar India

Apparently R* has opened a new development studio in Bangalore, India.

 

http://www.rockstargames.com/careers/openings/rockstar-india

 

I'm pretty sure this is the "Rockstar dedicated unit at Technicolor" that has been transformed into a Rockstar branded studio. It states on the website that they have been working on every title since RDR. That's the first time I saw the Technicolor unit in the game credits.

 

 

Our team in Bengaluru (Bangalore) has been working with our global family of studios on all our titles since Red Dead Redemption. We are looking for talented and passionate individuals to join us at our new state of the art studio facility to ensure that Rockstar continues to reach new heights in immersion and innovation.

I like the logotype!

I doubt that that it's a completely separate team with its own building and facilities similar to other Rockstar's studios like North and San Diego. I believe that it's the same team 'Rockstar Games Dedicated Unit' which works under Technicolor, but now it has grown substantially and recognizably that Rockstar started to advertise jobs in India at their website and call it 'Rockstar India' at the same time.

 

EDIT: Am I wrong about what I said?

It seems that they've got their own facility (building, too?) in India.

For some reason I came to think about this:

 

 

End credits (10:20) "Visual Effects - Bangladesh Sweatshop VFX" :D

 

I hope it's not sweatshop working conditions at Rockstar India. Both these countries are very cheap to outsource to.

Moving Idiot

Isn't every Rockstar studio a sweatshop though? :pp

So they turned the RDU (Rockstar Dedicated Unit) into an actual studio? Damn! I find this weird though, because the RDU is purely an outsourcing studio.

 

Edit: Fisher had already said it but oh well.

Could it be just a 'Localisation' Studio?

Nope, the Rockstar Dedicated Unit was a full outsource studio integrated into Technicolor, artists, programmers, the like. Rockstar basically 'seceded' from Technicolor and made their own independent studio.

That's quite a news to me. Seems like it has turned in to actual studio recently. Finally Computer engineers who are passionate in gaming have got something to cherish. It would surely open up some good opportunities for talented guys(in that field). Also, Imran Sarwar who is one of lead game designer in GTA is from Pakistan if I am not wrong.

R* India! A good Idea. Keep it up.

Imagine if R* would set up shop in Southeast Asia as a jab at Ubisoft who recently established a studio in Laguna.
