Rockstar London's studio head, Mark Washbrook, has resigned from the company after working with Rockstar since 2005.
A studio rep confirmed
the news to consumer site IGN's UK arm, and noted that the studio head of internal QA facility Rockstar Lincoln, Mark Lloyd, has also left his position. Both Washbrook and Lloyd resigned this month.
Washbrook has worked on Midnight Club: LA Remix
, the PSP edition of Rockstar San Diego's multiplatform console racing title. He's also credited with having worked on 2007's controversial Manhunt 2
, which was developed at Rockstar London with supervision from Rockstar North and input from numerous other Rockstar studios.
The rep said that the departures of Washbrook and Lloyd, whose next roles are not known, would not affect any projects underway at Rockstar's studios.
Rockstar London only has one job posting currently on its official site for an IT Systems developer, and its current work has not yet been announced.
