Rockstar Games - goodbye Dan Houser

Post by 0v3rz34l0u5 » Sun Feb 09, 2020 9:25 pm

Co-founder of Rockstar Games, Dan Houser, is leaving the firm he started with his brother Sam in 1998.

Mr Houser was a main creative force behind two of the firm's biggest series, Grand Theft Auto and Red Dead.

His departure comes after an "extended break", Rockstar's parent company Take-Two Interactive said.

Rockstar's series have often courted controversy, but are among the best-selling and most critically-acclaimed games of the past two decades.

Mr Houser will officially depart in March, according to a notice Take-Two sent to US financial regulators. His brother Sam Houser will remain as the company's president.

Dan Houser was one of the lead writers for the Grand Theft Auto series, as well as Rockstar's other hits, Bully and Red Dead Redemption. He also worked as a voice actor on some of the company's projects.

In its filing, Take-Two wrote it was "extremely grateful" for Mr Houser's contributions and that the remaining team was focused on upcoming projects.

Grand Theft Auto V, released in 2013, was one of the most commercially successful games of the decade, selling well over 100 million copies.

Only time will tell. As look as they continue to pump out epic games, I’ll be happy.
