Prominent game developer Gordon Hall–who founded the studio that would become Rockstar Leeds and would go on to work on Red Dead Redemption, L.A. Noire, and other major games–has died. He was 51.
GI.biz reported Hall’s passing after news broke from members of the Yorkshire game development community, which is where Hall spent a lot of time.
Hall founded Mobius Entertainment in 1997, which worked on numerous Game Boy and Game Boy Advance titles, including Max Payne. Take-Two Interactive acquired Mobius and re-named it Rockstar Leeds. At the studio, Hall worked on GTA: Liberty City Stories and GTA: Chinatown Wars, successfully bringing the GTA franchise to Nintendo’s handheld console for the first time.
