After working for almost 20 years at Rockstar Games, the company’s vice president of product development Jeronimo Barrera left the company. Will this affect the release date of the long-awaited Grand Theft Auto VI (GTA VI or GTA 6)?
Barrera spoke with Variety. He revealed that he left Rockstar Games back in mid-December 2018 which was really quite a surprise, given his long history with the company.
According to Variety, during the five-year development of Red Dead Redemption 2 (RDR2) and as the project was drawing to a close, that’s when Barrera decided it was about time to open a new chapter in his career. He told the news outlet:
“I pretty much left when it was done, it was a natural progression,” he said. “I looked at what I would be doing for the next few years if I stayed on and where I was in life with my family, my kids, my desire to make cool s**t. I felt like it was hitting all of the right points.”
Will This Affect The Release Date Of GTA 6?
“My job entailed basically steering the ship in the right direction,” he said. “With a studio team that maxed out at two thousand plus, just trying to keep the direction of all of this stuff heading in the right direction was pretty much my job.”
