RocketWerkz has two studios: a AAA studio on the waterfront of Auckland, working on AAA titles such as ambitious sci-fi survival game on Icarus, and our indie studio in Dunedin.
The team features alumni from Bethesda, Activision, Weta Digital, Grinding Gear Games, Bohemia Interactive and the worlds of film and animation. Founded by Dean Hall, creator of hit survival game DayZ, we are independently-run but have the backing of one of the world’s largest games companies, Tencent. Dean returned to New Zealand to found RocketWerkz in 2015, and secured strategic investment from internet giant Tencent in 2016.
