Dan Houser is officially leaving Rockstar Games after being on an extended break since the spring of 2019. He’s been at the company for over twenty years.
Houser will depart in March, as revealed by a document released via Take-Two Interactive’s IR site. No reason was offered in response to several outlets who enquired as to why exactly Houser’s decided to call time on his tenure at Rockstar. It’s been confirmed that his brother (and Rockstar co-founder) Sam Houser will be staying on as company president, though.
“After an extended break beginning in the spring of 2019, Dan Houser, Vice President, Creative at Rockstar Games, will be leaving the company,” Take-Two’s investor relations filing stated.
“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.”
