The Real Reason Why Rockstar Games Is Not Working On GTA 5 Story DLC


No Matter how much I complain about Grand Theft Auto 5 it still remains one of my favorite video games. Grand Theft Auto 5 huge open-world provided some of the best ways to play and explore the crazy world of GTA that Rockstar Games created for us.

Sure, GTA 5 has solid gameplay components and fun 3-way protagonist storytelling but as an overall story campaign, it felt kinda weak compared to previous GTA games.

What I really adore about GTA 4 is how Rockstar managed to keep the serious tone with fun and exciting gameplay and it does not end there. Ballad Of Gay Tony and Lost And Damned showed Liberty city through a different perspective and showed more ways to have fun in the world.

In 2014 Rockstar Games teased story DLC for GTA 5 but it was never mentioned again and this disappointed many loyal Rockstar Fans but after nearly 4 years we got a pretty fair statement about this whole DLC debacle from Rockstar director of design Imran Sarwar.

No, it was not really a conscious decision, it’s just what happened,” Sarwar says. “With GTA V, 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 II. The combination of these three factors means for this game, we did not feel single-player expansions were either possible or necessary.

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.
