Rockstar-to-Merge-Canadian-Studios-Into-OneMax Payne 3 development studio, Rockstar Vancouver is to be closed as Rockstar looks to bring their Canadian teams together under one roof.

Rockstar today confirmed plans to open a studio in Oakville, Ontario for their other Canadian studio, Rockstar Toronto.

The move will create an additional 50 positions; reports suggest Rockstar will offer all 35 people from Vancouver a place within the new studio.

Jennifer Kolbe, Vice President of Publishing and Operations for Rockstar Games said:

Expanding Rockstar Toronto and bringing our Canadian development talent together under one roof underscores our commitment to building world-class teams. A single Canadian team will make for a powerful creative force on future projects.
