>The man in charge of the regional Rockstar studio long credited with handling the bulk of development for the Grand Theft Auto games is no longer at the company, Rockstar confirmed to Kotaku today. The company said Rockstar North studio head Leslie Benzies had been on sabbatical for the past 17 months.

>Rockstar North has had a less GTA-centric role in the past decade, as they and other regional Rockstar studios have been credited with sharing the work on the company’s major games, including the seemingly all-hands-on-deck 2013 GTA V.

Guys remember David Jones ?
He created gta and lemmings, left and produced shitty games
his gta games ( 1, 2 ) were different than leslies gta games design
So the next guy in charge will change the gta design most likely oo and thats what we wanted right ?
His last gta game was 5 btw

Leslie isn't really synonymous with GTA. If the Houser brothers were gone I'd be worried, but as far as I know they're still on board. Don't worry family, the last good AAA franchise is still good for now.

Not referring to you specifically but to everyone in this thread seeing this as writing on the wall for the downfall of GTA and R*.

anyway, dunno how long it's been since you've played GTAO, but loading times have been drastically improved on PC, except for the loading into the game when you boot it up.

I've only repeated like 4 or 5 missions in total and I have 2 garages full of modded cars and motorcycles, as well as a vtol jet. All the money for that came from actually exploring the multiplayer content instead of trying to turn it into a chore.

Yeah, DaS2 isnt as good as the first, but i dont like when people say it is a bad game. It is my GOTY 2014, just slightly worse than DaS1 in some aspects: Level design and Boss Design

People say GTA has grinding. Doesnt cheat engine work on it?, or they are fags and now you must pay for cheats, aka megashark cards?
>>
>>323710789
It's an okay game, but it's one step forward 3 steps back.
2014 was pretty weak year.

I would say DS2 was the best but South Park was really good.

Also I didn't even finish DS2. Dropped it halfway through because I was so let down.
