Rockstar “Absolutely” Intends to Continue Making Single Player Content

GTA Online's continued success doesn't mean Rockstar is going to stop focusing on single player stories.

Grand Theft Auto 5 has enjoyed far greater success than anyone could have predicted when it launched, even for a GTA game, and GTA Online has been hugely responsible for that continued, enduring success. Of course, that’s come at the cost of something, with Rockstar having not only taken their sweet time to getting to the next mainline game in the series, but also having roundly ignored post-launch single player expansions, contrary to what happened with GTA 4.

If Rockstar North’s director of design Tarek Hamad’s words are anything to go by though, that’s not necessarily indicative of what the future holds for the company. Speaking with GQ, Hamad says that Rockstar “absolutely” intends to keep making single player stories for players to experience.

In fact, some of it might even drop in GTA Online itself, similar to the recent Heist update, which delivers a blend of solo and multiplayer content. “I think you can see that with Online and I think going forward we’re going to inject more of that single-player element in there,” said design director Scott Butchard.

GTA Online, of course, shows no signs of stopping down. GTA 5 is releasing on PS5 and Xbox Series X/S in 2021, and when it does, it will arrive with new, exclusive content.

Meanwhile, reports have also claimed that Grand Theft Auto 6 is in development, and that it will allegedly launch as a relatively medium-scale game, with Rockstar intending to add to it with post-launch updates.
