I'm not taking sides on this one. The Housers and The Benz are the dogs bollocks to me and have been ever since I played Smuggler's Run. Somehow hope they pull it back and sort it out internally but looks doubtful.

Not to mention it's been known for YEARS Sam had ego issues, but unfortunately I lost most of the articles that reported on this. He legitimately made a huge party after the IV release, he decided to go on a manic helicopter ride that almost crashed (I think this was on the Jacked book) and once he actually brought a baseball bat into the North studio.

 

The Housers are c*nts, I've always said this. So they forced The Benz out, yet they needed him so much.

I hope their future games will be OK regarding the tech.

 

That leaked mail suggests that he was a key person at Rockstargames indeed...

Kinda explains why the Housers acted like poopy babies when that BBC documentary came out.

Wow! so many things are getting exposed. It seems that Sam has ego problems, at least that's how I see it. I found this snippet interesting:

 

43.The Houser brothers had little interest in GTA Online, and did not focus on its development, all as reflected in  Bugstar.

 

 

It puts thing into perspective!

I wonder what the f*ck happened. In the leaked build logs from the PS3 vrsion of the game, somewhere in mid-2013, suddenly almost all the reported bugs were GTA Online related. Something had to have happened.

So does this explain why so many sh*tty decisons were made in GTA Online/GTA V's multiplayer then?

 

At any rate, the company deserves to crumble and burn in my opinion.

All this bullsh*t because of who was mentioned last in the opening credits?
For real R*:

 

 

n late 2013, The Benz had placed his name last in GTA Online’s

opening credits. In previous GTA installments, Sam Houser’s name was last. In gaming,the last position denotes the person deemed the most significant contributor to theparticular game. Sam Houser had actually placed his name last by fiat, not by actualachievement in game development. As to GTA Online, the first not to list Sam Houser last,he claimed to have noticed it only after it had already been released. If true, this wouldmean that he had not played or even viewed the game pre-release – or else he would have

The Housers are already famous for their crap, so it might be pretty hard to counterclaim this. You dun goofed now, Rockstar and it was a matter of time.

So this is how it happened, this is how Rockstar died.

 

Seriously though shame on the Housers, didn't expect this. Now I'm even more sceptical for future Rockstar games, I think their good times might be over.

> working 6 days a week minimum
> very secretive
> overall bad management
> supervisors threat to fire you often if you can't meet their demands

Welp, sounds like a "dream" place to work.

This basically explains why R* games take so long to make. They turn up an unplayable mess until The Benz cleans it up

The new red dead might suck :(

End of an era.

Sounds like all the games are going to suck from now on. I always thought the the Houser Bros had something to do with the games being good, but it seems like "The Benz" was the driving force the whole time.

 

I can't see any other way to look at this. Their games aren't going to be the same ever again. It's literally downhill from here. GTA V will be the last decent game they put out.

It might be an overstretch, but I might say that Leslie being out could very well be one of the reasons Rockstar isn't able to get another project on the line all this damn time. They could be in some kind of mess, mismanagement, confusion and blabbering from the Housers.

Well, that's what Rockstar was always criticised for, I can already see The Benz trying to straighten things out as the Housers just didn't give a sh*t.
