 Rumor: Rockstar North Getting Help for GTA V - briefly
(hx) 05:24 AM EST - Mar,08 2012
A new rumor suggests that Rockstar North may be hitting up 2K Czech for an assist in the development of Grand Theft Auto V. The developer best known for their work on Mafia II will be contributing to the highly anticipated release if sources close to VG247 are correct. According to the website, 2K Czech has been helping out Rockstar by creating animations, cut-scenes, and general gameplay work for almost a year.
A source told us the Czech studio has been working on the game for almost a year, putting its cinematic expertise to work in producing animations for cutscenes and general gameplay.

The Rockstar-led project was announced in November 2011, but platform and release information is yet to surface.

The tech sharing goes both way, with Rockstar opening its secrets to 2K Czech. Our source tells us the collaboration is part of Take Two’s plan to turn the Mafia series into a major franchise.

2K Czech’s next game, Mafia III, has apparently just gone into full development after a year of thorough pre-production, in which the game’s concepts and tech were stripped back to basics and rebuilt.

Our source has no details on Mafia III’s intended release window or platforms, but noted that 2K was in attendance at the “Durango” developer’s summit in London, rumoured to be an insider reveal of the next Xbox console. Mafia II released in August 2010 and received extremely divisive reviews, with critics praising its story, characters and richly-detailed world but criticising the gameplay.

When approached for a statement, 2K advised it does not comment on rumours.
