Take-Two Shares Fall

The parent company of Rockstar Games, Take-Two, saw their shares take a hit on the 5th February off the back of Dan Houser (co-founder of Rockstar) announcing he will depart from the studio.

According to Video Games Chronicle, the publisher’s share price peaked at $127.74 during trading on Tuesday, prior to Houser leaving Rockstar.

After the news announced, the share price dropped to $119.31 at once stage (down 6.6%) - it eventually closed at $120.76.

Dan Houser has been on an extended break since the spring of 2019. He will depart Rockstar on the 11th March 2020.

 

What Does This Mean For GTA 6?

So how does that impact GTA 6? It could mean an announcement for GTA 6 is brought forward or the release date will come sooner than anticipated to bring the share price up.

It may be a hasty conclusion as it will no doubt resolve itself in time. We'll know more soon as we are still waiting for Rockstar to announce its third-quarter financial results, which should happen this week.

It's also important to remember that he played his part in writing almost of the Grand Theft Auto titles up to this point.

It's hard to question whether the story will be up to the same standard without him playing a part in the game.
