Grand Theft Auto V has been wildly successful as an online multiplayer game, thanks to Grand Theft Auto Online, but single-player fans have felt left out. Rockstar Games made statements recently that fully explain why Grand Theft Auto V hasn't seen more single-player downloadable content and why it won't in the future.
The people over at Rockstar seemed like they had made a shift away from single-player games when it came to Grand Theft Auto V. The online content became much more important than any new story releases. According to the director at Rockstar, Imran Sarwar, the team really believed that Grand Theft Auto V's single-player was already expansive. He mentioned it being like three games in one. That's part of the reason why Rockstar never made any moves to add more single-player content. They figured there was enough there already from the start.
The lack of additional single-player content was also due to the development of Red Dead Redemption 2. The team is self-admittedly full of perfectionists, so they want to make sure all of their games are as good as they can be. With a large part of the company focused on making the single-player story content in Red Dead Redemption 2, Grand Theft Auto V fell to the wayside.
Red Dead Redemption 2 is set to release sometime in the spring of 2018. It's at that time we'll be able to see all the hard work that took away from Grand Theft Auto V.. Do you think there should have been more story content in Grand Theft Auto V? Or do you feel the single-player parts of were enough already?
