GTA co-creator Dan Houser announces new open-world game

GTA co-creator Dan Houser announces new open-world game

The studio's new game was spotted on their website

Rockstar co-founder Dan Houser's new studio, Absurd Ventures, has announced a new open-world game through a job listing that can be found on the studio's website.

Per a job listing for a lead gameplay designer on Absurd Ventures official page, the title will be a open world action-adventure game, which isn't a far cry from games that Houser has worked on previously.

GTA fans will soon get to enjoy GTA VI.

"Become the primary vision holder and hands on contributor for character, controls, and camera design in an open world action-adventure game. The person in this role will lead a team of multi-disciplinary specialists to deliver best-in-class combat and third person action across multiple game modes," the job listing reads.

Houser left Rockstar in 2020, over 20 years after he co-founded the studio in 1998. Several other former Rockstar staff members also joined Houser at his new team, chief among them being Michael Unsworth, the former Red Dead Redemption series writer, and Lazlow Jones, the co-chair of Rockstar's production department. The studio is also currently looking for an art director, lead designer, senior art director, senior producer, senior technical director and technical director.

Absurd Ventures was first founded in 2021, and per VGC is listed as a "ready-made interactive leisure and entertainment software development" studio. VGC also notes that in addition to Absurd Ventures in Games being registered with Companies House (the UK database of all operating companies, past and present), Houser also registered a separate company named Absurd Ventures LLC in the US, likely due to the fact that the studio is also publishing a graphic novel named American Caper (which sounds a whole lot like the plot of every Grand Theft Auto game) and an audio drama named A Better Paradise. It's currently unclear whether either of these properties will eventually make their way over to games, however.
