Gamecock Media Group was a video game publisher based in Austin, Texas. It was founded in 2007 by video game industry veterans Mike Wilson, Harry A. Miller IV, and Rick Stults, original founders of Gathering of Developers. They used a more hands-off approach and allowed developers creative freedom with their work, as well as letting them keep their own intellectual property. On October 14, 2008, SouthPeak Games acquired and dissolved the company.

Controversy at the 2007 VGAs
During the 2007 Spike Video Game Awards in Las Vegas, Gamecock employees rushed the stage in capes and rooster heads as Ken Levine was about to take the stage to give an acceptance speech for winning the Game of the Year award for BioShock. Using the microphone for self-promotion, the interruption resulted in Levine being unable to talk before he was ushered offstage. Gamecock's CEO later apologised.
