Take-Two buys Barking Dog
Take-Two Interactive has announced that it has acquired Barking Dog Studios. Barking Dog will be renamed Rockstar Vancouver and is already at work on one military-oriented game and a second game is heading into development. The company is also responsible for beta 5 of Counter-Strike, the squad-based shooter Global Operations, and Homeworld: Cataclysm.
"Barking Dog has a strong history of developing cutting-edge technology and content, with a particular strength in military action," said Sam Houser, president of Rockstar Games. "Going forward Rockstar will continue to look to its internal development studios, Rockstar North, Rockstar Vancouver, and Rockstar Toronto, for the development of premier original entertainment software content."
