Rockstar Games Responds to the BBC’s The Gamechangers, Calls It “Random, Made up Bollocks”

September 16, 2015 Written by Jason Dunning

Aired last night by the BBC, The Gamechangers is a film starring Daniel Radcliffe and Bill Paxton that follows Grand Theft Auto developer Rockstar Games and attorney Jack Thompson throughout the development of San Andreas.

In a pair of tweets aimed at the BBC, Rockstar showed their displeasure:

Take-Two actually sued the BBC for trademark infringement back in May, telling IGN in a statement that Rockstar had no involvement with the film:

While holders of the trademarks referenced in the film title and its promotion, Rockstar Games has had no involvement with this project. Our goal is to ensure that our trademarks are not misused in the BBC’s pursuit of an unofficial depiction of purported events related to Rockstar Games. We have attempted multiple times to resolve this matter with the BBC without any meaningful resolution. It is our obligation to protect our intellectual property and unfortunately in this case litigation was necessary.

We don’t know if the timing is intentional, but Rockstar is currently holding a Grand Theft Auto sale on the PlayStation Store in North America.

Did you watch The Gamechangers?
