Rockstar: The Gamechangers is made up bollocks

Rockstar has taken to Twitter to express their displeasure in the BBC’s The Gamechangers.

Purportedly based on the stoush between Rockstar’s President Sam Houser (played by Daniel Radcliffe) and American Attorney Jack Thompson (Bill Paxton), the developer described the show as “bollocks.”

Rockstar’s parent company Take-Two filed suit against the BBC in May saying at the time;

Take-Two Interactive has filed suit against the BBC for trademark infringement based on their movie currently titled‘Game Changer’ as it relates to Rockstar Games’ Grand Theft Auto video game series.

While holders of the trademarks referenced in the film title and its promotion, Rockstar Games has had no involvement with this project. Our goal is to ensure that our trademarks are not misused in the BBC’s pursuit of an unofficial depiction of purported events related to Rockstar Games. We have attempted multiple times to resolve this matter with the BBC without any meaningful resolution. It is our obligation to protect our intellectual property and unfortunately in this case litigation was necessary.

Rockstar’s most recent release, GTAV, is available now.
