Longtime Rockstar North Head Leaves Company


Huge news as Leslie Benzies, Head of Rockstar North, has left the company. The company told Kotaku has pretty much been gone for the past 17 months.

Benzies had been with the company for 2 decades and helped develop Manhunt, Red Dead Redemption, and the Grand Theft Auto series.

There had been reports that Benzies had planned on leaving the company for awhile, but stayed to finish up the development of Grand Theft Auto V. When Kotaku checked to see if he ever came back from his sabbatical, the company stated…

“We can confirm that Leslie Benzies went on sabbatical on September 1, 2014 and has decided not to return to work for the company. We are very grateful for Leslie’s contributions to Rockstar over the last 15 years as we worked together to make some amazing games.

Leslie helped us build an incredible team that will continue to create great experiences for our fans. Leslie will always be a friend to the company and of course we are going to miss him but we wish him the absolute best for the future.”
