Leeds and North studios praised at big night for games development
Publish date:

Rockstar Games was the proud winner of two Develop Awards last night.

Both its UK studios took home prizes, with Rockstar North named as Best In-house Studio, and Rockstar Leeds winning the Best Handheld Studio prize.

In the past year, North released The Lost and Damed - the Xbox Live episode sequel to GTA IV, which last year helped Rockstar win a handful of prizes at the 2008 Develop Awards. It's been hailed as one of the more significant examples of DLC on the market today.

Rockstar Leeds, meanwhile, released GTA: Chinatown Wars for the DS earlier this year. The game is still the highest rated handheld game on Metacritic and has been widely-praised.
