Rockstar co-founder Dan Houser returns with new company Absurd Ventures

Rockstar Games co-founder and creative director Dan Houser, who parted ways with the Grand Theft Auto developer in 2020, has formally unveiled Absurd Ventures, a media company established to create new IP across “all platforms and formats”.

Not much has been heard from Houser since his departure from Rockstar following an “extended break”, but rumblings of a return emerged last year when it was discovered he’d registered companies Absurd Ventures and Absurd Ventures in Games in both the US and UK.
