2008 Sunday Times: GTA IV took 1000 people and $100m to make
Grand Theft Auto IV - General News | @ 05:02 AM MDT | By Neil
An interesting article about Grand Theft Auto IV appeared in The Sunday Times today. The newspaper was given a rare interview with Leslie Benzies, the producer of every GTA title since GTA III.
The interview gives us a brief look at his life, which has seen him move from one of the most remote areas in Scotland to a leading position at the country's top video game developer. There's also mention of the rivalry between Benzies and David Jones, the top man at competing developer Realtime Worlds. The two companies are the product of a rift between the early GTA team, which has resulted in colorful opinions and competing games - GTA IV and All Points Bulletin.
Moving back to GTA - Benzies says that almost 1000 people played a part in the development of GTA IV. He believes the cost could be around the $100m mark, making this one of the most heavily staffed and expensive video games to date. If you read just one more article about GTA IV before you get the game on Tuesday, make it this one.
