Rockstar Toronto previously worked on Max Payne 3 and the PC version of Grand Theft Auto IV, in addition to Grand Theft Auto: Episodes from Liberty City and prior Rockstar titles The Warriors and Max Payne 2. Rockstar Vancouver also contributed to Max Payne 3 in addition to developing both Bully and Bully: Scholarship Edition. According to Rockstar’s vice president of publishing and operations Jennifer Kolbe, combining the two studios “will make for a powerful creative force on future projects.” Kolbe notes that Rockstar plans to add more than 50 new positions to the expanded Canadian team and credits the Ontario government’s cooperation for the ability to do so.


Financial details on the partnership with Ontario’s government weren’t disclosed, though Ontario minister of economic development and innovation Brad Duguid commented that “By providing financial support and tax incentives to help companies grow, we maximize Ontario's competitiveness in the global economy and support job creation.” It’s currently unknown what the new combined Canadian studio will work on first, though it’s worth noting that Max Payne 3 has several downloadable expansions in the works.
