Gamecock Media Group was an American video game publisher based in Austin, Texas. It was founded in February 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 Gamecock Media Group, and dissolved them shortly after.
2007 Spike Video Game Awards controversy
During the 2007 Spike Video Game Awards in Las Vegas, Gamecock Media Group employees rushed the stage in capes and rooster hats, as Ken Levine was about to take the stage and 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 Media Group chief executive officer Mike Wilson later apologized.
