Rockstar Games Reveals Why GTA V Never Got Single-Player DLC

Posted on by Ryan


In an interview with Game Informer, Rockstar Games director of design Imran Sarwar address an issue that many within the Grand Theft Auto community ave expressed complaints. That being that Grand Theft Auto V never received any single-player DLC. So why did it not happen? Sarwar states…


“No, it was not really a conscious decision, it’s just what happened. 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.”

“We would love to do more single-player add-ons for games in the future. 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.”
