In a shocking announcement today, Dan Houser, one of the co-founders of Rockstar games, is leaving the company. An SEC document was released from Take-Two earlier today announcing the resignation. Houser is credited with many roles at Rockstar, including writer, voice actor, producer, and Vice President. He has worked on multiple franchises, including Grand Theft Auto, Red Dead Redemption, Bully, and Max Payne. His last day at the company will be March 11th, 2020.
From the document: “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.”
Houser has won multiple awards for his contributions, and has even been considered one of Time Magazine’s 100 most influential people in 2009. It is unknown where he plans to go next, but wherever it is, he’ll surely continue to do great things. We wish him only the best and hope that Rockstar continues to utilize his influence in their future projects. What do you think about Dan Houser’s departure? Let us know in the comments below.
