Rockstar Leeds Founder Gordon Hall Dies At Age 51

Rockstar Leeds founder Gordon Hall passed away at the age of 51. This sad news comes from multiple sources in the Yorkshire development scene – where he was based.

His Legacy

Gordon Hall’s game career began when he founded Möbius Entertainment in 1997 (now known as Rockstar Leeds Limited), which produced a variety of Game Boy and Game Boy Advance titles.

The developer also collaborated with other Rockstar teams on projects such as Grand Theft Auto: Liberty City Stories and GTA: Chinatown Wars. In addition, in 2009, he worked at Rockstar San Diego, where he contributed to the work on Red Dead Redemption.

He is also credited for a whole list of well-beloved games. Check out his whole body of work here.

Between 2011 and 2013, Gordon took a leave of absence in order to research player psychology and micro-transactions strategy. He later returned to the gaming industry as chief creative officer for Activision Blizzard Mobile.

“His pursuit of excellence was staggering and he formed a great, trusting bond with those who chose to work (hard) alongside him. As a close friend, he was truly inspirational and socially speaking a real energetic one-off who could endlessly entertain at the drop of a hat, holding everyone in the palm of his hand. Gordon will be very sadly missed.”
