Rockstar Games Co-Founder Leaves Company

Rockstar Games co-founder and one of the titans of the video games industry, Dan Houser, has officially left the company. It was revealed back in February that Houser would be leaving Rockstar, and that sad day has now arrived.

Houser helped to found the company back in 1998, and has lent his talents to a number of Rockstar’s most iconic games, including the Grand Theft Auto series and Red Dead Redemption. Along with being co-founder of the studio, Houser was its head writer, producer, and its vice president of creativity.

It’s not clear what’s motivated Houser’s split from Rockstar, but considering his status within the company, it’s rumoured to be a less-than-amicable divide.

Rockstar Games has yet to issue a statement on Houser’s move from the company, lending fuel to the rumours of something unpleasant possibly having taken place behind the scenes.

Where Houser’s amazing career will take him next is also unknown, but if he stays in the video games industry, expect great things from his next endeavours!

People have been flooding social media with gratitude to Houser for his contributions to video games.

One user on Twitter shared the following: “Dan Houser will part ways with Rockstar Games today following to founding the company in December 1998. You’ll be deeply missed and I wish you all the best for the future endeavours in your life ahead.
