It appears that Rockstar Games isn't done digging into the Grand Theft Auto 5 goldmine just yet. After bringing back one of the game's main protagonists, Franklin Clinton, in GTA Online's latest update, fans noticed that Rockstar might have just inadvertently revealed its bigger plans for the popular character.
Prepare for more GTA Online DC in 2022
In GTA Online's latest VIP Contract update, Rockstar brings back a familiar face in Franklin. The said mission sees players help out Clinton alongside a surprise appearance from Dr. Dre, which was "leaked" a few months ago. However, while the latest GTA Online mission has been nothing short of a success, it appears that Rockstar has bigger plans for Franklin.
Although Rockstar hasn't technically confirmed its future DLC plans for GTA Online, the December 23 Rockstar Social Club post does suggest that Franklin is coming back. To be more specific, the post reads "Help Franklin with his first VIP Contract and you'll be duly rewarded for aiding an old friend while also making new connections in the music business."
Fans are speculating that Rockstar specifically used the word "his first" to imply that more Contract DLC missions featuring Franklin are coming to GTA Online.
While this is all just speculation, it is interesting that Rockstar worded it so. At this point, Rockstar knows its audiences. GTA fans will comb through every little detail if they think that it's worth looking into. Case in point, just take a look at those fans thinking that Rockstar dropped clues about GTA 6 in GTA Trilogy.
