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


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.
