The co-founder of Rockstar Games has unveiled the initial projects for his new business. Being one of the largest video game companies in the world, Rockstar Games has succeeded in maintaining a great deal of secrecy surrounding its operations. Sam and Dan Houser, the company’s founders, avoided the spotlight for a long time.
They only did the odd newspaper interview when a new game was coming out, otherwise, they kept their heads buried in their games. Other than that, there aren’t many pictures or videos of them on the internet. But their names are all over the Rockstar games, and a lot of people credit Dan Houser, who worked as a producer and writer on several of the company’s major titles, such as Grand Theft Auto V and Red Dead Redemption 2, as one of the main creatives on Rockstar’s finest games.
Regretfully, Sam Houser took over as CEO of Rockstar Games when Dan Houser departed. Dan Houser has been quietly developing Absurd Ventures, his own business. Houser embarked on this new adventure accompanied by two of Rockstar’s most well-known writers and creatives, Michael Umsworth and Lazlow Jones.
