He is the latest high-profile exec to leave the company.

A Red Dead Redemption series writer has now left Rockstar Games after long service at the company.

GTAForums user Rucke recently revealed that the Red Dead Redemption series writer Michael Unsworth has now announced his departure from the studio. He has been in Rockstar Games for 16 years and now he has left. The reveal was spotted on his updated LinkedIn profile.

It has been revealed that Unsworth had worked on virtually all of Rockstar’s major releases over the past 16 years. He has been one of the only three writers credited for both Red Dead Redemption games’ stories.

The former writer has also worked on dialogue writing in Grand Theft Auto IV and V, Max Payne 3, LA Noire, Midnight Club: Lost Angeles, and many more games.
