New rumors about Grand Theft Auto 6 have come to light, with one tipster suggesting that the next entry in the series could include more traditional single-player DLC that GTA V fans asked for but never got.
Well-known GTA tipster Tez2 shared new rumors in a post on GTAForums. In response to a comment about reports of how GTA 6 will feature a world that “expands over time,” the source said this means “Rockstar will go back to the way they were planning future content before the hit of GTA Online grew.
According to Tez2, Rockstar was working on single-player DLC for Grand Theft Auto V, but the studio ended these projects and shifted their focus to GTA Online.
For GTA 6, or whatever the game is called, Tez2 stated that “new cities and missions” will be coming to the game as DLC, and will “definitely be planned before the release of VI”.
The insider said he thinks new content for GTA 6 will take the form of “new instanced cities or islands,” similar to Cayo Perico or North Yankton from GTA V. “That way Rockstar can come up with a new heist for the next GTA.” On-line”. mode with each new DLC. If we’re lucky, we might get a whole new city from time to time,” Tez2 said.
GTA IV had major story-based expansions including The Lost and Damned and The Ballad of Gay Tony. For GTA V, Rockstar said, “We didn’t feel single-player expansions were possible or necessary”, though the company said it “might as well do so for future projects”.
While GTA V did not receive any new single-player DLC, main character Franklin’s story continued in GTA Online’s 2022 expansion The Contract.
Development on GTA 6 is now “well underway,” but Rockstar has yet to announce a release date for the game. The game has big shoes to fill, as GTA V has sold a staggering 170 million copies.
Very little is known about GTA 6, but it is rumored that the game will feature two main characters, one of which is a Latin woman. The game is rumored to take place in Vice City on a map that will continually expand over time. The game is said to be at least two years away from release.
