5. Red Dead Redemption 2’s developers overworked
But Red Dead Redemption 2 caused controversy before launch when Rockstar’s head honcho Dan Houser revealed in an interview that the team was putting in 100 hour weeks in order to see the game to completion last year. So it seemed Rockstar had been working its employees as hard as the dwarves from Snow White to complete their latest cowboy masterpiece then, something which put the US company at the centre of controversy in 2018.
Thankfully, Houser cleared up the matter by saying it was only the senior staff which had put in these many hours. Even if other Rockstar employees did have to beaver away for 70 hour weeks often in order to put the finishing touches on Red Dead Redemption 2. Too much ado about nothing, then, especially taking into account what a fantastic game Red Dead Redemption 2 turned out to be in the end.
