Although the interactive entertainment conglomerate that is Rockstar Games continues to flourish with the continued success of Grand Theft Auto V since 2013 now entering a new decade, there is one takeaway from the game studio. In that, co-founder Dan Houser has walked away from the operation. In that, Houser back in February last year announced to be departing from Rockstar Games by March the month following.
And while it is unsure where the future leads for Rockstar Games or where Houser will be next, it was understood Houser is to embrace retirement after founding a tent pole developer since the late 1990s. But, a new report from GTAForums reveals that Houser is starting a new company within the video game industry.
Over on Companies House, a government-operated domain for filings, Houser is a “persons with significant control” for a new venture, ‘Absurd Ventures in Games’. Additionally, Houser is also listed as a Producer and Creative Director for the new pursuit.
Grasping further understanding for this new pursuit, the filing is submitted under 62011 which is acknowledged under “Ready-made interactive leisure and entertainment software development.” While Absurd Ventures in Games is filed as an LTD in the United Kingdom, Houser also filed the same name as a LLC in the United States residing Delaware.
In regards to Houser’s previous work, Rockstar Games in a recent announcement shared that GTA Online for Grand Theft Auto V is to shut down later this summer. However, the decision will only be put into effect for the PlayStation 3 & Xbox 360 versions of the game. You can read the full report by heading here.
