Rockstar Leeds duo form new studio

Two senior developers are in the process of leaving Rockstar Leeds to kick-start their own indie development studio, Double 11.

The studio’s new director, Lee Hutchinson, was one of Rockstar Leeds’ lead engineers up until the start of the new year. He had worked on a number of Rockstar iPhone projects, including GTA Chinatown Wars and Beaterator.

However, Hutchinson insists that his departure from Leeds was very, very amicable”, and had no traces of the fervent ‘spouse’ allegations that put Rockstar Games’ working standards under scrutiny.
