Grand Theft Auto V‘s solo campaign is massive in scope. I’m currently playing the game and I find myself often floored by the blurred lines between side missions and story events. It’s a huge world. However, Grand Theft Auto IV featured two substantial DLC expansions with The Ballad of Gay Tony and The Lost and the Damned. The lack of additional single-player content in Grand Theft Auto V has been a hot topic for almost two years now. However, Rockstar has stated it doesn’t have plans for Michael, Trevor, and Franklin anytime soon.
Rockstar North has refocused its entire team on
Grand Theft Auto Online, adding additional content and crafting entirely new modes for the multiplayer mode. Single-player DLC is not a priority at this time.
“Right now our focus is on GTA Online which has exceeded our expectations. We currently have all key members of the team that launched Grand Theft Auto V focused on supporting GTA Online in every capacity. The community we’ve been able to foster is massive, growing each day and we have so many ideas that have yet to make it into the game.”
— Imran Sarwar, Director of Design at Rockstar North
While single-player DLC isn’t out of the question, it’s clear we won’t be getting an expansion anytime soon. Lamar will have his time in the sun some other day.
