Will never happen, but that's what my reaction would be. Think of the Persian guy as Sam or Dan Houser making the announcement that single player's been removed.

if that happened it would not surprise me that rockstar would go to that level.

 

to answer your question OP, i would just play other games. i've been playing HITMAN and battlefield 1 regularly, and those are well made games. i heard doom and witcher 3 are excellent too although i never got the chance to play them. the point is that there are too many good games out there to linger on to GTA all the time when it does not deliver anymore.

I agree. There was a time when all I really had was GTA and FIFA. Now I play any type of game from Skyrim, The Witcher to Sonic and The Crew. There are just so many other games that are great out there.

 

If there's no SP in RDR2 then I will say I've outgrown Rockstar in general. Online focus with micro-transactions may appeal to teenagers but not to my sorry old ass.

Look forward to the next Saints Row, Watch Dogs, Far Cry, Yakuza, or new IP sandbox game.

 

I mean, I gotta be honest, the only way in which GTA really impresses anymore is in the technical aspect. Beyond that, the stories are getting confusing, the cheats that make free roam fun for me are slowly dying off, and the gameplay seems to be trending towards superfluous crap. I mean, I can browse the internet and watch TV and watch movies and do yoga, but why? Why?

 

It's still fun, though, which is why if the game has single player I will buy it. But if it goes full MMO, bye, felicia.

Microtransactions are guaranteed. There's absolutely no way you're going to escape from an EA or R* title without seeing atleast one instance of microtransactions. And this dogsh*t gets even worse considering I can't retreat to my cave since Cockstar has officially decided to let me eat my own sh*t by activating their crap every three or 5 f*ckall days. f*ck it, I'd rather buy a gun and go around shooting up sh*t and not activate myself every 3 days.

And what do I get for coming out of my cave every three days?

14 year old little nitwits online shoot me up as soon as i spawn and I have to update this pile of poop every month and not get any of the dlc features in sp.

wow what a pile of sh*t

Considering R* made half a billion dollars from multiplayer -- I assume from microtransactions like buying cars and weapons and shee~ -- this is a very real possibility. Well, maybe not that there would be NO single player, but that it would be scaled-down to allow more programming resource to be applied to MP.

 

How would I react? Meh. Frankly, I think GTAV proved the Housers are kinda past their prime, so I might not worry too much. I guess it would depend on how dumbed-down SP was. I'd be disappointed, certainly, because it would be an ignominious end to what started as a fantastic series, one that has been my one game I bought no matter how much of a poorfa9 I was since the 90s. But, V was just so incredibly disappointing -- not because the gameplay or gfx weren't cutting edge, but because the story and characters were not remotely interesting. Plus, San Andreas without the gang territory mini-game just wasn't San Andreas. ;)

Don't give Rockstar any idea, they had 5 years to develop gta 5 and still managed to make a dogs dinner of it.

Not to mention the delay of RDR2 and the whole dragging out release dates of DLC'S for online. Rockstar are a Lazy gaming company on a power trip, with a god complex and they treat fans like crap in my opinion. No new game since 2013 is bloody shameful.

I already don't plan to buy RDR2 near the premiere and definitely I'm not going to pay full price for it, so V will get the same treatment, even if it will have SP. Without it however it's a no-buy from me as I have other games and R* is no longer company I would blindly trust.

Has this been posted before? (warning; it's jimquisition and therefore inherently NSFW; he likes to swear)

 

 

 

The reason I post it is that Jim spends 10 minutes eviscerating the head of Take Two for saying they haven't been making enough money from GTA Online. (Only half a billion dollars, but never mind the details, I guess.) And this got me thinking that if T2 have this attitude then GTA VI is likely to be just a portal to the next generation of GTA Online, if you catch my drift, that making money out of the SP will be nice an' all, but ... hey, buddy... those microtransactions, aye? Thar's gold in them thar hills!

 

tl;dr T2 want your gold, and MP is the way to get more of it than you -- greedy little skiver you've been all these years -- have been giving them. So, single player, that's nice, but only so we can microtransaction you dry, matey!

Hmm this is strange. I remember reading somewhere last year that Online was making a ton of money. But I guess the revenue flow is slowing down. If this is true we can expect the GTA Next announcement this year or early next year. SP won't go away though, that would be dumb.

They decided to not include Singleplayer because Rockstar is busy investigating 3/11

If the whole industry moves to Online-only playing and it's become the standard, then R* would be forced to walk with the rest. However, since that's not happening and there's still a huge emphasis on creating believable graphics and characters, then we still have plenty of story-driven SP games to look forward to for decades. We might see more integration between SP and MP and seamless transition between the two, such as between V and Online minus the godawful loading screen, but there will always be a story to tell that you can complete in solitary. We might also witness some kind of a reboot/back-to-the-basics strategy in order to refresh the GTA formula. Just adding more features, mini games and drawing amazing graphics aren't going to be satisfactory in the long run if there're no fundamental improvements in the aspects of physics, animations, AI and pedestrian simulation. We need to witness another II-III and III-IV kind of transition.

I won't get it and won't play it. I got Yakuza and the old GTA's for now. Hopefully Saints Row goes back to the roots with good game play mechanics so that I can forget about GTA. Watch Dogs might end up replacing GTA for me if they keep on the track they are on now, fix the driving mechanics and make the game plot about crime and it would be a very decent replacement.

There won't be a GTA VI then. GTA Online is the online for the series permanently. They said themselves when it launched that it would be carried over into GTA VI the same way Crews from Max Payne 3 carried over. They also said that the map would expand to include the likes of Liberty City and future locations.

 

Dan Houser also confirmed single player with "45 years worth of plans for the next GTA's storyline."

The Benz also had something to say about single player but he has since left as we know.

 

The Benz is also the only person with the balls and brains to compete with the GTA series and Rockstar as a whole.

Keano, not sure if you seen this..

 

"GTA Online was never intended as a permanent fixture, and that the franchise needs to 'rest." - Strauss Zelnick

 

He also went on to say..

 

"Not only was it not our intention that GTA Online was permanent, but it's important that it not be permanent,” says Zelnick. "We have to rest the franchise at some point."

 

http://ie.ign.com/articles/2016/06/02/gta-online-needs-to-rest-says-take-two-ceo

 

And that's the thing, while these little updates are cool but it's like a buying a new FIFA every year. It's the same game with some tweaks but you do enjoy the little updates. GTA Online is like that now. It's like an annual game with periodic updates. I'll certainly log-on to see the new updates, I might even enjoy it for a few hours but there's an accumulation of things from previous releases that I just can't afford or see myself grinding to get it all. I wont own those things because they don't seem achievable. I wanted a sort of economy like Online has, there's so much to buy, I should be ecstatic but Shard Cards have put a dampener on the whole experience. Even if they are subtle or I don't have to buy them, the extortionate prices for everything else reminds me that I'll have to sit through hours of waiting screens and lobbies to attain all the good stuff I want. Face it, the game isn't that good when you factor in the loading screens, other crappy players, guys playing music down mics, squeekers etc.

 

I don't mind grinding to achieve something in a game. I 100%ed San Andreas. So I collected all the collectibles..No bother. But Online, the Grind to Reward ratio doesn't pay off, especially if you are not an online-centric player, which Rockstar just alienated that fan-base by discontinued SP support. So the "logical" thing would be to buy a Shark Card but then I'd feel like I'm cheating. Pay to win. Sorry for the rant.. Obviously Shark Cards and Online with free small updates appeals to others but I preferred, solid SP, good online with sizable DLC to purchase. The purchasable DLC add items to Online and everyone wins those items by PLAYING the game not by PAYING for them. Puts everyone on the same journey.

 

I don't mean to sound so negative about GTA Online. It is quite an ambitious and monetarily beneficial product for Rockstar/Take 2 and it many people do enjoy it but I just wish it was a little different.

 

I'm grateful Skyrim, The Witcher and Fallout are good dedicated open-world SP games.

This :^:

 

My thoughts exactly. The great thing is, I have a gaming PC now, and I know how to install mods on GTA, so I can either remain playing older GTAs with mods, or hope the new GTA can be modded and has mods released for it. Either way, I'm well-prepared to compensate myself now. .

They wouldn't do that. Rockstar might be greedy and evil and whatever colorful names we use here, but they're no idiots. I mean, a company that makes billions is hardly run by idiots.

 

The problem many people have is that Rockstar seems to be appealing only to casuals and the people who worship Trevor while driving a chromed supercar. That is true, but considerng how much GTAV sold before Online appeared, they are definetly going to keep making Story Mode. GTA IV was a game that lacked gameplay but was more story-driven. Many didn't like that, well, GTAV was a game that lacked storytelling but had a bigger emphasis in gameplay.

 

The only problem I see is that GTA Next will be limited to how much of that can be fit in the multiplayer portion. That sucks, but hey... that could be a good thing. I personally think that they could make a VERY decent GTA title with the things in GTA Online. Which is my main problem with Online: a lot of things that could be done Solo or with NPC allies or even multiple characters like GTAV and you're always obliged to play with other people. That's cool, but all my friends moved on from GTAV/O already.
