Rockstar Games & Technicolour form new animation unit
Rockstar Games and Technicolour have launched a new animation team in Bangalore, India. Technicolour has assisted the developer on animation duties in Red Dead Redemption, L.A. Noire and Max Payne 3, but is now taking a more integrated role on future projects.
WebWire reports that French company Technicolour’s “game artists, animators and state-of-the-art technology infrastructure” will be put to work on Rockstar titles going forward.
“This partnership reinforces Technicolor’s strong commitment and strategy to growing its art and animation business for the video game industry and we are proud to work with cutting edge industry leaders like Rockstar Games,” said Tim Sarnoff, President of Technicolor Digital Productions.”
“Technicolor were a fantastic resource for us during the development of Max Payne 3”, said Jeronimo Barrera, VP of Development at Rockstar Games. “We’re looking forward to building the partnership on future projects.”
Expansion is good, but it’s still not quite a GTA 5 release date announcement is it?
