Take-Two Interactive and Rockstar Games Renew Contract, Pop Champagne

May 25, 2011Written by Steven Garcia

Despite rumors to the contrary, the trio that serve as the creative force behind Rockstar Games’ massive portfolio of blockbuster titles have agreed to stick around for a few more years. Who, exactly? Well, the brothers Sam and Dan Houser and Les Benzies, that’s who! And if those names don’t ring a bell, you should seriously play through the entire Grand Theft Auto series once more and stick around for the credits. Don’t be alarmed if you feel the urge to send them a thank you letter shortly after. It’s normal.

Announcing the agreement, publisher Take-Two said,

“Sam Houser, Dan Houser and Leslie Benzies, key members of the creative team of Rockstar Games, have agreed to renew their long-term employment agreements with [Take-Two] on substantially similar economic terms. This team has been instrumental in the development and success of Take-Two’s extensive portfolio of multi-million unit internally-owned franchises.” 

We’re sure the terms of the agreement are great for both parties involved and wish them best of luck in the coming years. Now, that all the boring legal stuff is out of the way, can we please get another GTA? Thanks, guys!
