Grand Theft Auto giant Rockstar has said that it will be letting its staff work from home.
In a post on Twitter (below), the game studio said that "after significant research and consultation" with its various studios, it has started letting developers work remotely due to concerns about the COVID-19 coronavirus.
Rockstar follows the likes of Microsoft, Bungie, Google and Facebook in asking staff to work from home during the viral pandemic. Of note to the millions around the world who are self-isolating at home over health concerns is the fact that Rockstar says its online games will continue to run with support teams still assisting users.
The coronavirus has led to the cancellation of events including GDC, E3, Eve Fanfest and Game Connection America due to concerns of the virus being spread by such huge, international shows. Meanwhile, the BAFTA Game Awards has been changed to become an online-only event.
