Grand Theft Auto V won’t be getting any single-player only DLC now or in the future, Rockstar Games has confirmed.
The Grand Theft Auto, Red Dead Redemption developer revealed in an interview with GameInformer that although it “would love to do more single-player add-ons for games in the future” it “did not feel [GTAV] single-player expansions were either possible or necessary.”
Rockstar cites a lack of resources due to the success of GTA Online and the continued development of Red Dead Redemption II as a combination of reasons for the lack of single player DLC content. But that’s not to say that the studio will now forgo single-player expansions for its future titles. In fact, the studio admits to preferring single-player content over multiplayer content despite focusing all of Grand Theft Auto V‘s post-launch DLC on GTA Online with heists, races and lowrider customisation featured. “We would love to do more single-player add-ons for games in the future,” said the developer. “As a company we love single-player more than anything, and believe in it absolutely – for storytelling and a sense of immersion in a world, multiplayer games don’t rival single-player games.”
Grand Theft Auto V and the world of GTA Online have been a monumental global and commercial success for Rockstar Games following its release in 2013 for Xbox 360 and PS3 before further releases on Xbox One, PS4 and PC.
Earlier this year the studio delayed its current project – Red Dead Redemption II, with the western shooter now set to release in Spring 2018.
