Rockstar CEO Sam Houser has a net worth that eclipses most celebrities

His name might not sound overly familiar, but Rockstar CEO Sam Houser is kind of a big deal.

The British video game producer is the co-founder of the gaming company behind Max Payne and Red Dead Redemption.

But there’s one other video game franchise that Houser’s been at the helm of, making him billions of dollars due to its success.

That’s right, you guessed it: Grand Theft Auto.

Born in 1997, the GTA franchise was the brainchild of David Jones and Mike Dailly.

While the game was flying off the shelves, it was only a prelude of what was about to come for Rockstar Games.

It was unlike any action-adventure game seen before, taking inspiration from some of the biggest gangster films ever made.

Depending on the title, the Grand Theft Auto series has a little bit of The Godfather, Scarface, Miami Vice, and Training Day mashed into it.

The biggest title for Rockstar Games was 2013’s Grand Theft Auto V, which sold 190 million copies worldwide and is currently the second best-selling game in history.

That puts it ahead of Minecraft (300 million sales) but overall, the entire GTA franchise has sold 410 million copies worldwide.

That’s why Rockstar Games is currently valued at $22.5 billion, according to Forbes.

All this success must be a massive paycheck for Rockstar CEO Sam Houser, who’s been overseeing all of its creations since starting the company with his brother and other associates.

As a result of this success, Houser’s current net worth is believed to be in the region of $170 million.

And this is just the start, because his net worth will no doubt become even more impressive when the next chapter of the GTA saga drops.

Last week, Rockstar Games announced the launch of the Grand Theft Auto VI trailer, with the franchise’s next game slated for 2024.
