Ian Bowden, formerly art director at Rockstar and a Grand Theft Auto veteran, has left the company to join casual and social game studio GameDuell.
Bowden originally founded Mobius Entertainment back in 1997, which then became Rockstar Leeds in 2005. For the last decade, Bowden has been art director on games like GTA IV, GTA V, Max Payne 3 and L.A. Noire.
As GameDuell's new art director, he now plans to boost the company's visual style for its mobile games.
"After two decades in the field of core game production, I felt that the time was right to dive into the exciting new business field of social and mobile games," Bowden explained.
