Rockstar founders will be inducted into AIAS Hall of Fame

The Houser brothers and GTA producer Leslie Benzies will receive the honor on Thursday

Dan and Sam Houser, founders of Rockstar Games, and GTA producer Leslie Benzies will be the latest inductions into the Academy of Interactive Arts and Sciences’ (AIAS) Hall of Fame at the D.I.C.E. awards ceremony on Thursday. The trio will join previous incumbents Gabe Newell, Mark Cerny, and BioWare founders Dr. Greg Zeschuk and Dr. Ray Muzyka. 

The Houser brothers founded Rockstar back in 1998 and acquired original GTA developers DMA Design but the siblings’ cinematic influence has always been credited with helping elevate the series to another level. Like them or not, the Housers and Rockstar have helped shape the industry in a big way.
