Rockstar Games Promises More Single Player Experiences In Future GTA V DLC

While the train has continued to endlessly issue new – and free – content since the debut of GTA Online in 2013, developer Rockstar Games issued that the multiplayer component for Grand Theft Auto V will always be the main focus for add-ons. While its predecessor Grand Theft Auto IV received two story expansions set in the same Liberty City, Grand Theft Auto V has not seen the same light of day.

In actuality, Rockstar Games issued that the firm will be solely committed to supporting free content for GTA Online with the urgency that there is no planned story DLC. The statement was delivered dating back to 2017 and the firm kept its word as multiple online updates were supplied to only expand the experience for GTA Online’s growing formula.

However, after years of requesting from vocal fans, the company is promising that single-player experiences are to come to Grand Theft Auto V after all. While specifics were not offered to elaborate if it will be definitive story DLC or more independent online add-ons, the firm had to say this:

It’s something that’s been on our minds for quite some time and the community has been vocal about it. It’s something we’re keen to carry forward. We want to respect teams and players who want to play co-op. But at the same time still allow solo players to still get just as valid an experience out of it.

There are perks to both. If you go in there by yourself, you’re taking 100 percent of the cut and it’s a lot easier to do stealth and plan when you’re not on comms. With multiple players, you can split up and do multiple things at once.

Evidently, Rockstar Games already took the approach to solo experiences with the most recent Perico Cayo Heist that arrived earlier in December. However, more of the same or exclusively single-player content will be administered in future downloadable content it seems. Though the firm does not elaborate on the distinction of the content, it is reassuring that the firm has listened.

Perhaps Rockstar Games following the booming commercial success of Grand Theft Auto V in the last decade is finally ready to truly experiment with its formula before the next mainline entry – whenever that arrives. According to a report from NPD Group in January, Grand Theft Auto V earned the most sold game of the 2010s which went against close to a dozen Call of Duty releases.
