Grand Theft Auto 5 Will Not Be Getting DLC For Single Player

Rockstar Games has seen success with single player DLC content for their past games such as Grand Theft Auto 4 and Red Dead Redemption, however the company’s latest release of Grand Theft Auto 5 had never gotten any story expansion. The developer has finally confirmed that Grand Theft Auto 5 future updates will be exclusive to GTA Online.

“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,” says Sarwar. “With GTA 5, the single player game was absolutely massive and very, very complete. It was three games in one. The next-gen versions took a year of everyone’s time to get right, then the online component had a lot of potential, but to come close to realizing that potential also sucked up a lot of resources. And then there are other games—in particular Red Dead Redemption 2.

“The combination of these three factors means for this game, we did not feel single player expansions were either possible or necessary, but we may well do them for future projects. At Rockstar, we will always have bandwidth issues because we are perfectionists and to make huge complex games takes a lot of time and resources. Not everything is always possible, but we still love single player open-world games more than anything.”

The company focused its efforts on bringing the game to a new generation of consoles and microtransactions on Grand Theft Auto Online where players are spending tons of cash on Shark Cards. Grand Theft Auto 5 has since sold over 80 million copies and with constant content updates for Grand Theft Auto Online, therefore it is difficult to put the blame on Rockstar for not working on single players DLC or Grand Theft Auto 6.
