Rockstar Games has announced that it will be dissolving Max Payne 3 developer Rockstar Vancouver as part of its Canadian expansion plans.

Rockstar today announced plans to open a larger studio in Oakville, Ontario for its other Canadian studio, Rockstar Toronto. The new studio is backed with full support from the Canadian government. There’s some good news for the Vancouver team though, Rockstar is offering every member of the 35-person team a place at the new studio, along with an additional 50 positions being made available over the next few months.

“Expanding Rockstar Toronto and bringing our Canadian development talent together under one roof underscores our commitment to building world-class teams that can make the kind of groundbreaking entertainment experiences Rockstar Games is known for,” said Jennifer Kolbe, vice president of publishing and operations for Rockstar Games. “A single Canadian team will make for a powerful creative force on future projects. We plan to add more than 50 new positions to our combined Canadian team, and are pleased to be entering into this strategic partnership with the Ontario government.”

Brad Duguid, Minister of Economic Development and Innovation, added that the “decision to expand its Toronto studio demonstrates the confidence in Ontario’s leading-edge digital gaming industry.”
