Deciphering the repertoire of projects that have released from developer Rockstar Games essentially is the DNA that imbeds the two founders of the company, Dan Houser and Sam Houser. The two brothers who were fans of cult-classic films of genres spanning from crime-centered entertainment to westerns transformed their ambitions into interactive experiences that the world is well-known of now.

And while the two hold a heavy footing for the entries of differing franchises, the company this week reveals that Vice President Dan Houser will be departing from the company next month.

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.

The news comes from parent company Take-Two Interactive which discloses that Houser will officially be stepping down from his position at Rockstar Games on March 11 in the coming month. The Academy of Interactive Arts & Sciences Hall of Fame recipient has yet to comment on his decision to leave Rockstar Games after founding the company since 1998. A spokesperson for Rockstar Games clarified with IGN that co-founder Sam Houser still resides at the company.

In the midst of the current climate that revolves around Rockstar Games, it was revealed in a recent report that Red Dead Redemption 2 and even Grand Theft Auto V has experienced a very populated holiday season as record high player counts have been recorded entering the new decade.
