"Pitbull has been undercover for far too long, so we are keen to show the world our exciting K9 Game Engine Technology" said: Carol Oxford Office Manager for PitBull Syndicate. "The games industry has changed, and so has Pitbull: we have to become more aggressive. Instead of whispering under our breath "We did that", we will be shouting it out loud".
