As Discovered by Jeff CayleyHauser’s new studio is “live-action and animation, video games and other interactive content, books, graphic novels, and scripted podcasts.” I will also try my hand at the media.
Since 2021, it has been strongly implied that Hauser has launched a new studio after Absurd Ventures in Games has been registered in the UK, with the business listing mentioning Dan Hauser as the studio’s director. was However, there were very few details about the company at the time. Dan Houser co-founded Rockstar Games in 1998 with his brother Sam and three others of his. However, in early 2020, Rockstar’s parent company, Take-Two Interactive, announced that Hauser had resigned from the company.
More than just a co-founder, Houser has played a major role in Rockstar Games’ history. This includes his role as a writer for nearly every Grand Theft Auto game, as well as his role as a writer for every piece in the Red Dead Redemption franchise ever released. This includes executive producing Red Dead Redemption 1 & 2 and Red Dead Online.
Absurd Games has yet to announce its first project, but expect the studio to share more information soon.
