Venom Games

From the Audiovisual Identity Database, the motion graphics museum


Venom Games was initially formed in January 2003 from the remnants of Rage Software's Newcastle studio after its parent company went into administration. Their first game released in September 2004, Rocky Legends, was a successor to the team's previous adaptation of the popular film franchise. That same month, Take-Two Interactive Software purchased the studio, but after the release of their final game in June 2008, Don King Presents: Prizefighter, Take-Two shuttered the studio a month later, intending to wind down its operations in Western Europe to focus on Eastern Europe and Asia.
