In the same month as Rockstar Games’ co-founder, Terry Donovan, left TakeTwo Interactive, and Capcom’s Gary Dale returned to become COO, the chaps over at Rockstar Vienna have started a new company called, ‘Games That Matter’
At the moment the only sign of life is a single home page with the following text:
”14 years and 14 days after establishing Rockstar Vienna (formerly known as neo Software) Hannes Seifert, Niki Laber and Jürgen Goeldner are proud to present their new company:
Games That Matter Productions GmbH. A new company with a visionary game production business model.
The press conference to announce the goals and business model of Games That Matter will take place on January 25th, 2007. If you are interested in attending the press conference please send your details to the following email address: email@example.com”
Rockstar Vienna was closed May 11th 2006, according to ex-staffer, Jurie Horneman’s blog
”This morning, as I came into work, I was greeted by security guards. It turned out Take-Two has closed their Rockstar Vienna office, effective immediately, "due to the challenging environment facing the video game business and our Company during this platform transition”.
