Amidst all the controversy
over Rockstar's latest release, Manhunt 2
, comes word that someone else is now upset with the developer. It appears that Rockstar failed to include the staff of more than 50 people at Rockstar Vienna, which worked on the title for nearly two years until it was closed down, and several other people from various other Rockstar teams.
Thankfully, Jurie Horneman, a former Rockstar Vienna producer posted the full list of names on his blog
, but he didn't stop there. According to Horneman, the work him and the rest of his team contributed to the game made it into the retail release of the game.
"I am disappointed and outraged that Rockstar Games tries to pretend that Rockstar Vienna and the work we did on Manhunt 2 never happened - the work of over 50 people, who put years of their lives into the project, trying to make the best game they could. I am proud to have been a part of that team," Horneman wrote. While we've been behind Rockstar during the flood of media scrutiny over Manhunt 2
and its past releases, we can't, like Jurie, help feel a bit disappointed that it failed to properly credit the developers who spent so much time creating its new cashcow.
