Rockstar co-founder Dan Houser looks to have a new company


Up to some Absurd Ventures

Rockstar co-founder Dan Houser seems to have a new venture in the gaming industry. A new listing details Houser as Director at Absurd Ventures In Games.

As reported by Rockstar Mag, Houser is listed on a new company in the UK called Absurd Ventures In Games. Further details are sparse, outside the business’ nature described as “ready-made interactive leisure and entertainment software development.”

Alongside being a co-founder, Houser was a producer on many major Rockstar Games. He also has writing credits on most of the Grand Theft Auto and Red Dead Redemption series, as well as other Rockstar games like Max Payne 3 and Bully.

Houser left Rockstar last year, following a long hiatus from the company. He founded the Grand Theft Auto studio alongside Terry Donovan, Jamie King, and his brother Sam Houser in 1998. His departure was confirmed in a filing from parent company Take-Two, which said it was “extremely grateful” for Houser’s contributions, and that Rockstar would remain focused on current and future projects.
