Do you think Dan Houser finished writing GTA 6's story?

Recommended Posts

If not, how different will GTA 6's story be? Dan Houser has always had a very specific style. I can see the GTA series becoming more generic without him

I am pretty sure a good chunk of it is written if not the whole of it. But undoubtedly some details will be changed.

Houser probably finished the story and script with his team but their script also evolve to some extent with production. And Rupert Humphries, Michael Unsworth, Lazlow worked with him for over 10 years. So I guess they know what makes GTA truly GTA.

His co-writers are still there, so his sardonic style of writing will continue even without him unless they decide to write differently this time, which I don't see the point of unless they plan to reboot the series. 

 

Did his finish it? Well, we don't even know if he contributed to its writing.

The f*ck? 

Good he is gone. I got bored of the same outlaw Redemption story, characters with the same moral codes. 

I stopped RDR2 after the first few missions. 

Played this over and over. A bad guy with a heart and common garden morality. 

 

Leslie Benzies was the one who put the quality into gta anyway. 

f*ck Dan Houser or better yet don't f*ck him, he is unf*ckworthy. 

 

Hopefully there is a fresh new mind or team in control of writing

Thats your rather unpopular opinion, most would say RDR2 has one of the best stories in any game (this gen).

 

Leslie Benzies had nothing to do with writing. He wasn't missed at all in RDR2

Sure. Lel. 

 

You mind elaborating on that? What is so brilliant about RDR 2's story? 

 

Oh Benzies missing. Not houser.

Leslie Benzies is a guy who people didn't even know before he quit lol, but suddenly after his departure he suddenly became the mastermind of a billion dollar company and every single game that this company has released because that's how it works!

I mean you didn't even play it so you won't get it. It did a great job with showing the downfall of the gang, had fantastic character development for Arthur, Dutch, John etc. and great dialogue.


Not sure why you are so obsessed with Benzies, you don't even know what he actually did for the games. You just assume RDR2 is somehow bad compared to other Rockstar games because he wasn't there which is stupid

I mean, if we take Houser at his word and he hadn't even started (still had no idea what they'd even do with it) when he was doing interviews for RDR2 and then he went on an "extended break" in the Spring of 2019 then it seems unlikely. By most accounts it sounds like Dan does the bulk of the writing as they do the mocap stuff and that takes years to do. I'm not sure where he would have found the time.

 

It's always possible though that he took a more traditional approach this time and just sat down and wrote the thing, then left the script with Rockstar.

Then I elaborate for you. I did not play it through. 

But I watched it. 

My friend played it through. Seen all deaths. Seen the downfall. 

And it's not like I hate the game. 

I actually found it very suspenseful when Dutch gave that gravity speech

I think Houser didn't take part in GTA 6, and I also think GTA 6 will be very similar to GTA 5 in story terms, which will disappoint many of the fans of this forum. It's an unpopular opinion obviously.

I'm comfortable not having him as the writer. Unsworth and Humphries are great writers too and they are still around. And I'm sure if any of them get stuck, which I'm sure they won't, he will be available on a consultation basis. So it'll be ok. From what I hear him not being around will ease the crunch significantly with lack of rewrites. So I take it as a positive really. In terms of his style, until RDR2, it was mainly just movie plot ripoffs. So i'm not too protective over his style.

I think it’s because there was an email leaked from Dan or Sam Houser begging him to come and fix RDR. So clearly his contributions were important.

Is there an actual proof of this? I thought it was a made up story to prove Benzies importance and win the court case against Housers. One email doesn't mean anything as it could be interpreted in different ways.

Yeah, everything you saw word-for-word was used in court. Everyone interpreted it the same way.
