A previous Rockstar-boss is making a return.
The last time we heard of Leslie Benzies, it was when he sued Take-Two for forcing him out of the Rockstar North presidential seat. However, a few things have happened since then. Scotsman reports that Benzies has incorporated five companies. We’ll name three here: Royal Circus Games Limited, Starship Group, Everywhere Game Limited.
Royal Circus is the ominous one – the application at the Intellectual Property Office says that this company would develop games for PC, consoles, and mobile devices. The first game could be called Time For A New World, which was trademarked along with the #TFANW trademark.
Benzies, who has played a pivotal role in the success of Grand Theft Auto, might be having a jab at Rockstar with this title. Don’t forget, Benzies joined the team in 1999, and he became the director of the first 3D Grand Theft Auto game, GTA III – the beginning of the GTA-dream tale. Is history repeating itself?
VR might be involved with the new project. The fourth company is VR-Chitect Limited, aimed at making VR hardware (?!) and software. A GTA-styled game in VR would be amazing.
