Venom Games was a video game developer based in Newcastle upon Tyne in the UK.

History[edit]

Venom Games was founded in January 2003 in Newcastle upon Tyne following the demise of Rage Software by members of the development team responsible for Rocky. Take-Two acquired the developer in September 2004 for $1.295m.[1] The studio was closed down by 2K in July 2008, [2] along with PAM development in Paris, as part of a move to wind down its Western European development in favour of more cost-effective production sites in Eastern Europe and Asia.
