Purple Lifeless Redemption collection author Michael Unsworth has joined Rockstar co-founder Dan Houser’s Absurd Ventures studio as head of story and artistic administration.

Absurd Ventures was formally unveiled again in June, marking Houser’s first high-profile online game undertaking since departing Rockstar – following an “prolonged break” – in 2020.

Absurd describes itself as a studio centered on “constructing narrative worlds, creating characters, and writing tales for a various number of genres” that span quite a lot of mediums – with the studio particularly calling out live-action, animation, video video games and different interactive content material, books, graphic novels, scripted podcasts, and extra.

As noticed by BeGeek, Rockstar’s former vp of writing Michael Unsworth – who co-wrote each Purple Lifeless Redemption video games, and has contributed dialogue to the likes of LA Noire, GTA 4, and GTA 5 – joined Asburd in October, having departed from Rockstar this August after 16 years with the corporate.

Unsworth is not the one Rockstar veteran to have joined Houser at Absurd Ventures, both; former author and producer Lazlow Jones – who left the GTA maker in 2020 – has been with Absurd since June 2021, the place he is serving as government producer.

There is no phrase but on what Absurd is engaged on, however the studio’s web site has a bunch of summary nonsense to peruse and ponder whereas we await additional particulars.
