Rockstar co-founder and former GTA lead Dan Houser is making an “open-world action-adventure game” of his own at his new studio

Dan Houser, one of Rockstar’s co-founders and the former lead writer (among other roles) on both Grand Theft Auto and Red Dead Redemption, announced a new studio called Absurd Ventures last year. We now know at least one concrete thing that the studio, proudly dedicated to making “weird shit from desperate people,” is working on, and yes, it’s a game that sounds a bit like GTA on paper.

Recent job listings at Absurd Ventures, like this lead gameplay designer position, specify “an open world action-adventure game” in the works. This is a pretty broad description for the genre, but the clearly video game-y nature is especially relevant because Absurd Ventures itself is even broader.
