accusations of Colin Bundschu (former designer of Rockstar Games who worked on Red Dead Redemption 2) against Jeronimo Barrera, VP Producer who left the company earlier this year 20 years of service to the Houser brothers.
According to Bundschu (who abandoned the video game industry just after this episode), Barrera would have molested him during a work meeting: the former executive would have asked the boy to sit on his lap and then groped him in his private parts.
Colin Bundschu has reported what happened to the human resources department of Rockstar Games and says he ” reported it to at least four other people “. Kotaku’s article speaks of investigations actually carried out by the company but then ended after hearing Barrera’s defense, declaring himself totally alien to the facts disputed by the former designer.
The boy told the story in an eBook published on Amazon in 2017 but without directly mentioning the people involved, but now he decided to definitely go out in the open to avoid a similar situation happening again.
Kotaku contacted Jeronimo Barrera, who denied the allegations, while Rockstar Games and Take-Two Interactive did not release statements on the specific case, merely reiterating that ” the two companies are always careful and take such accusations seriously. “
