In an earnings call this week, CEO Straus Zelnick has opened up after it was revealed the Rockstar Games co-founder – who set up the studio with his brother Sam – would be leaving in March, but he doesn’t think more people will be on their way out.
“Things couldn’t be better [at Rockstar]. And to be very specific, no, we certainly don’t expect other departures.
“As an organisation as a whole, we have an extraordinarily low rate of attrition, vastly lower than the industry average.
“I think that’s because we offer a great place to work at all of our labels and at Take-Two corporate as well. To the extent that we fall short, we always aim to do better.”
And Zelnick – who thanked Dan for his contributions and wished him well for the future – pointed to Sam’s commitment as president of the company.
“I don’t typically speak for other people but I confidently can speak and say that Sam is highly committed to the organisation.
“Sam and I work very closely together; it’s an enormous pleasure to be able to be in business with Sam and the entire team at Rockstar.
“Culturally, I’ve only seen ongoing improvement at Rockstar, frankly. I’ve only seen growth and engagement and innovation.”
