Rockstar parent Take-Two is currently the target of a hostile buyout by Electronic Arts, but the Take-Two label known best for Grand Theft Auto has done some M&A of its own, the company announced Friday.

Rockstar founder Sam Houser said Mad Doc will "enhance" Rockstar’s "core technology."

Mad Doc has led development and provided contracting and consulting services in the games industry, particularly with graphics, artificial intelligence and networking. and recently worked on the Xbox 360 edition of Bully: Scholarship Edition.

Mad Doc is particularly focused on its efforts in AI, as the company’s technology can be found in Empire Earth II, which used Mad Doc’s Mad3D Game Engine and MadAI Character AI.

Mad Doc, which was behind the Dungeon Siege II expansion, Legends of Aranna and Star Trek: Armada II, was founded in 1999 by Dr. Ian Lane Davis.

“We’re eager to bring our expertise to bear in the character-driven, open-world stories that make Rockstar Games titles so uniquely compelling," Davis said in a statement.
