Michael Unsworth, one of the main juggernauts behind the narratives for Rockstar Games, is officially departing from the company after serving sixteen years. The confirmation of this was found and reported on his LinkedIn page.
At this time it has not been said where he will be going, but he will surely be missed. Micheal Unsworth has been with Rockstar Games since 2007, serving as a writer for many Rockstar titles. A description has been updated on his LinkedIn Page;
