Rockstar's Houser on Potential EA Takeover


Posted May 12, 2008 - By Brian Leahy

The Wall Street Journal has an interesting article and interview with Rockstar Games' Sam Houser on Grand Theft Auto IV and EA's potential buyout of Take-Two.

The article mostly summarizes the release of GTA IV and that it made a boat load of money, but it has an interesting statement from Houser.

If EA gets Take-Two, and therefore Rockstar, Houser doesn't foresee seeking approval from EA on content. He intends to operate independently.

We wouldn't worry about that, as EA has been extremely hands-off with its recently acquired studios like BioWare and Pandemic. That and they probably aren't itching to mess with a franchise that pulls in as much money as GTA.
