One of the creative masterminds behind the Grand Theft Auto and Red Dead Redemption series, Dan Houser, is leaving Rockstar Games, the company he co-founded along with his brother Sam in 1998.
Take-two Interactive broke the news today in a piece of tax filling paperwork.
After an extended break beginning in the spring of 2019, Dan Houser, Vice President, Creative at Rockstar Games, will be leaving the company. Dan Houser’s last day will be March 11, 2020. We are extremely grateful for his contributions. Rockstar Games has built some of the most critically acclaimed and commercially successful game worlds, a global community of passionate fans and an incredibly talented team, which remains focused on current and future projects.
What’s next for Mr. Houser? I’m sure he’s made enough money off all these amazing games he has helped create over the years. Is he about to kickback and enjoy a drink or two in the Bahamas? Create yet another new studio? Join forces with another to work his magic once again?
Stay tuned as the news continues to develop.
