The respond from Rockstar Games came quickly.
In an interview with the foreign press on the days we left, Dan Houser, one of the bosses of Rockstar Games who stated that they worked 100 hours a week, is the main focus of the social agenda now. The players thought that the video game developers were working too hard, so they were a bit upset with Rockstar Games. A respond came from the company. Rockstar Games commented "We do not expect anyone to work this way." about the interview.
On the other hand, Houser, who is been working for 12 years with their teammates, said that he is not complaining about this situation in an interview. In addition, Rockstar Games was able to turn down the negative criticism from the players with the explanation they made.
But before GTA 4 came out, a similar issue had come up once. As a matter of fact, at that time, video game developers made a statement that they could not see their wives/husbands. Rockstar Games will release Red Dead Redemption 2 with 300,000 animations and 500,000 dialogues on October 26 for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
