Rockstar Games may have plans for single-player GTA 6 DLC ahead of the game’s launch, according to reliable insider Tez2. Tez2, whose recent reports of Red Dead Redemption and GTA 4 remasters were corroborated by numerous publications, wrote on popular fan site GTA Forums that Rockstar Games will revert back to how it planned DLC and add-ons before GTA Online’s success changed things. Although the online portion of GTA 5 turned out to be a massive success, players have long expressed their displeasure over lack of single-player DLC, which was in the works at one point before being scrapped.
According to Tez2, Rockstar Games will be working on “new cities and missions” while GTA 6 is still in development. This way, the studio won’t be scrambling to allocate resources to DLC development post launch. Tez2 wrote:
Rockstar will go back to how they were planning future content before GTA Online success boomed. The first wave of ‘new cities and missions’ we will receive as DLC will definitely be planned out before VI releases. And Rockstar will be able to allocate resources towards whatever new title they will work on after VI release. As for the new cities, I think for the most part we will receive instanced new cities or islands. Like Cayo Perico or North Yankton style. That way, Rockstar can introduce a new heist for the next GTA Online mode with each new DLC. If we are lucky, we could receive a fully fledged new city from time to time.
Rockstar Games scrapped plans for GTA 5 single-player DLC back in 2015, much to fans’ disappointment. Later, the developer said that it decided to leave the game’s single-player alone because the campaign is “massive and very complete” as it is. Rockstar Games believes that GTA 5 is “three games in one.”
