Dan Houser Leaving Rockstar.

Recommended Posts

The Shakermaker

I just read that. Big news. I wonder why he is leaving, stress maybe, disillusioned in the industry. Sad

True. One of the head writers for both Redemption1 & Redemption2. Two great stories with amazing writing. I wonder how his absence will be felt in future Red Dead stories.

Hopefully Rockstar can fill his shoes with somebody worthy. It won’t be easy.

Just a guess: maybe because of the focus on online instead of single player?

Holy sh*t, did not see this coming.

It sucks because he seemed to be the one most dedicated to Story telling rather than online... It's hard to find anything good from this😕

Yeah I saw the IGN article as well

 

Really sad news.

I'm sure he'll do well no matter what. He's obviously a very talented individual.

...but this does leave me too wonder what will become of the franchise moving forward?

I think I read somewhere last year he was going to start writing scripts for movies or something (may have read it on this site).  That would explain things if true - more focus on the new endeavor.

I've been thinking about something since RDR2 released, Leopold Strauss missions about collecting debts is ultimately the reason Arthur Morgan dies, perhaps Dan Houser wrote the game's storyline like that to represent Take Two making Rockstar Games kill their own singleplayer aspect which they are famous for and shifting the focus to Online, so Arthur Morgan's death also represents Rockstar Games' singleplayer death.

Damn.. that's f'd up. No matter how much personal despise I have towards the corporate mouses, Housers duo and Benz were kinda " legends ". I wonder how and to what exact extent does this change things..?

Whatever is behind this (besides big ego), it will most likely be bad news for the GTA and RDR franchices in the long run. I would put my money on creative differences with TakeTwo. MP over SP? The presumed anti-Trump sentiment of GTA6? A cancelled RDR SP dlc?

Sad news that one of the driving forces behind a lot of Rockstar's greatest games is leaving them. But RDR2 is a hell of a way to leave.

Not sure how anyone can imply that Rockstar short changed SP in RDR2.

 

Anyhow, sad news. Pretty sure Rockstar games will not be the same without Dan. I think they'll start making smaller games, as Strauss has implied a few times.

No one wants that. I hate Strauss for saying that. He needs to realise the reasons why the games are successful. Making them shorter will only piss people off.

I think that if R* would start to focus on making short games instead of the open world games that they are famous for, it will not take long until another actor takes their place as the new masters of open world games. As it stands now it is not as if there are too few short games, the opposite is  in fact true and I think the gamers would appreciate even more and larger games instead.

BUT THE BENZ

RDR2 was the last R* game I've bought anyways. It could have never been realized without benzies'  heritage, the way and structure every R* game has been built since GTA 3 with, that golden formula. anyways, FAKE-TWO won't ever see another dime from me again. CLUCK YOU ZELNICK, BIG TIME!

This along with Take Two loving shark cards and wanting Rockstar games sooner bodes extremely bad for the future of Rockstar. GTA 6 could be something entirely different than we expected...

Sad, T2 is taking what I loved of Rockstar. They are like EA.

I sad of how they became. I hope that one day, Rockstar leaves T2 behind to follow their own path, but I don't know if it will happen.

When I talk about about Leopold Strauss you guys know exactly who I'm talking about, don't need to mention the name, and Arthur Morgan being Dan Houser and the rest of the crew members who cares about singleplayer.

Here's hoping Mr. Houser doesn't just decide to retire on his £76.5 million (?!)... Although I wouldn't blame him for it.
