UPDATE: Rockstar Games addresses GTA 5 Single Player DLC
Months later now, it feels like the world has come to terms with this news but is still asking, why? And now we have even more confirmation on this, from more GTA developers.
Imran Sarwar, Director Of Design at Rockstar Games told Game Informer the fate of GTA 5 single player expansions:
“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 potentials 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.”
In the interview, Sarwar made sure to assure fans that Rockstar wouldn’t continue the online-focused trend from this point onwards, and perhaps we could expect some single-player expansions for the likes of Red Dead Redemption 2.
“We would love to do more single-player add-ons for games in the future,” Sarwar says. “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.”
For all things Grand Theft Auto, keep it locked to Mammoth Gamers.
