Rockstar Games, (also known as Rockstar NYC), is a British-founded development division of video game publisher Take-Two Interactive, based in New York City.

While many of the studios Take-Two Interactive has acquired have been merged into the Rockstar brand, several other recent ones have retained their previous identities and have become part of the company's 2K Games division.

The Rockstar Games label was founded in 1998 by Sam Houser, Terry Donovan, Dan Houser, Jamie King and Gary Foreman.
