Rockstar doesn’t want developers talking about Rockstar.

A developer named Obbe Vermeij, who’d worked as a technical director on the early 3D Grand Theft Auto trilogy, started sharing stories about the games’ development on his personal blog earlier this month. But, he wrote yesterday, that’s all over now.

Today (22 Nov 2023) I got an email from R*North. Apparently some of the OG’s there are upset by my blog. I genuinely didn’t think anyone would mind me talking about 20 year old games but I was wrong. Something about ruining the Rockstar mystique or something.

Kotaku picked out some of the stories to summarize — like that Rockstar considered a zombie game, or that one of the devs made a gun that shoots ragdoll characters to test GTA IV maps.
