BioShock CEO, GTA Publisher Take-Two Stepping Down

Ben Feder, CEO of Take Two Interactive since 2007, will be stepping down from his post at the end of the year, the publisher of Grand Theft Auto, Red Dead Redemption, BioShock and Carnival Games revealed this morning.

Feder is leaving so he can pursue plans to travel in Asia with his family for an extended period, according to a press release issued by the company this morning.

Take Two chairman Strauss Zelnick will assume the additional role of CEO. The company also said that Take Two executive vice president Karl Slatoff has become the company's first chief operating officer as of four days ago.

Maybe he can hang out with ex-Capcom development lead Keiji Inafune during his Asia swing?


    Wow, that heading is a mess. Take Two is stepping down?

    Actually, Dan, the first Bioshock was a satire of untetfered Libertarianism. Yes, Libertarians can be very right-wing on some issues, but they also fight against drug prohibition and theocracies. There are a ton of references to Ayn Rand, who is the high priestess of Libertarians (though she herself called herself an Objectivist). But on a more simple level, Bioshock is a basic dystopian nightmare which can happen in any political environment.
