Overview edit · view history

Founded in 1995, Global Star Software Limited was originally located in Mississauga, Ontario, Canada. The company became active in the software publishing field and branched out from its roots in value PC entertainment to offer a variety of business and utility software, as well as software for a variety of other platforms.

The company became a wholly owned subsidiary of Take-Two Interactive Software Canada, Inc., which in turn was a subsidiary of Take-Two Interactive Software Inc. Although controlled by Take-Two, the company remained intact and published games using its own logo as a publishing label.

In 2002 Global Star Software launched its Global ProBiz lineup of over a dozen business and utility products. Global Star also continued its efforts in the PDA software market, spearheading new initiatives such as multi-platform releases for both Palm and Pocket PC devices.

By the end of 2002, Global Star was reorganized and became a division of Take-Two's Jack of All Games' Canadian operations along with Triad Distributors. Shortly thereafter, Take-Two announced that Global Star's products would henceforth be sold exclusively through their Jack of All Games' sales force to strengthen the company's position in the value-priced product category. In mid-2003, Global Star Software was formed and all distribution operations were consolidated operationally into the new company located within the Take-Two corporate facilities in New York City. On 9 September 2004, Global Star Software took over the publishing operations of Gathering of Developers.

The Global Star Software label was absorbed into the 2K Play label when Take-Two announced its formation on 10 September 2007.
