Rockstar has a lot of games under they’re belt. They’ve made crime dramas, mysteries, western…hell, they’ve even made a ping pong game, but you know what they haven’t made? A first person shooter; a calculated move says the studio’s Dan Houser.
“We’re deliberately avoiding that right now,” he said, according to a 1UP translation of an interview in Famitsu. “It’s in our DNA to avoid doing what other companies are doing.”
“You have to have originality in your games; you have to have some kind of interesting message. You could say that the goalpoint of Rockstar is to have the players really feel what we’re trying to do.”
