Rockstar Games none too pleased with BBC GTA drama

Rockstar Games wasn’t too happy about BBC GTA drama, The Gamechangers.

The show, which aired on BBC Two last night, is based on the true story of the battle between Rockstar co-founders Sam and Daniel Houser and now-disbarred lawyer Jack Thompson.

Although the show’s creative process involved plenty of research and interviews, Rockstar Games is less than impressed with the end result.

Here’s what the developer had to say on the topic:


Remember, though, that Rockstar Games had nothing to do with the BBC drama, and even threatened legal action against the broadcaster.

The Gamechangers hasn’t been well received by viewers or Rockstar, and this extends to ex-Rockstar developers too.

Here’s what former GTA dev, Mike Dailly, said on Twitter:
