Leaker claims that GTA 6 will be getting single-player DLCs

If we believe this report, Rockstar Games is making up for the complete lack of DLCs for Grand Theft Auto 5.

Ever since Rockstar Games confirmed that it's working on Grand Theft Auto VI earlier this year, we've received a boatload of information from different sources.

The Ballad of Gay Tony is widely considered one of the best pieces of DLC content of all time.

For example, a recent Bloomberg report claimed that GTA 6 will have a female lead and that Rockstar has been working on the upcoming installment since 2014. It also added that Rockstar will expand on GTA 6 once the game is out, which stands in contrast to what it has done with Grand Theft Auto 5.

A short while later, a different report emerged that claimed that Rockstar scaled down its ambition for GTA 6. Instead of having just one city and two protagonists, GTA VI was going to have four protagonists with three cities as its setting.

Now, Tez2 reports that Rockstar has a robust post-launch content roadmap for GTA 6. They claim that Rockstar will have at least one single-player DLC ready for GTA 6 way before the game even comes out.

Here's an excerpt of what Tez2 wrote on GTAForums:

The first wave of "new cities and missions" we will receive as DLC will definitely be planned out before VI releases. And Rockstar will be able to allocate resources towards whatever new title they will work on after VI release. As for the new cities, I think for the most part we will receive instanced new cities or islands. Like Cayo Perico or North Yankon style. That way, Rockstar can introduce a new heist for the new GTA Online mode with each new DLC. If we are lucky, we could receive a fully fledged new city from time to time.

Everything we've heard about GTA 6 implies that Rockstar still hasn't finalized its plans for the game. All the rumors could have been true at some point. The good news is that Rockstar's recent hiring push and the statement about Red Dead Online all but confirm its intensified focus on GTA 6.

If nothing else, pouring more resources towards GTA 6's development guarantees we'll hear more about the game sooner rather than later.

It's a shame that the success of GTA Online came at the expense of more GTA 5 content.

In other news, Take-Two Interactive had high praise for GTA 6, saying that the game will "set creative benchmarks" for the entire industry. In the same earnings report, Take-Two re-revealed its expanded slate of upcoming games until 2025. Finally, John Marston's voice actor just revealed that he is up for a Red Dead Redemption remaster or remake.
