THE makers of the hugely popular video game Grand Theft Auto have slammed a BBC drama about them.

BBC drama ‘The Gamechangers’, starring Daniel Radcliffe, was broadcast last night.

It focuses on the company Rockstar Games in  2002, the period between GTA: Vice City and its sequel GTA: San Andreas.

During this time US lawyer Jack Thompson launched a legal action against the makers of the game claiming it had a negative impact on its young players.

On its official Twitter account, the company sent two tweets to the BBC during the broadcast of the drama.

The first tweet said: “This new Rentaghost isn't as good as I remember"

While the second said: “Was Basil Brush busy? What exactly is this random, made up bo****ks?”
