What happened to the story expansion we were promised on the games initial release? Its been 5 or 6 years and theres been no word since Online became "the only way to get all the DLC", which I dont even have home internet so I basically own 20% of the game. Hopefully they will finish the story and Ill find somewhere to update it.

Single Player is abandoned by Rockstar Games, all the SP DLC planned was cancelled and parts of it was merged with GTAO instead. If anything, GTAO updates are breaking GTAV, the game is getting worse because they don't check if the content affects Single Player.

Yup. This is why I downgraded my game to the Freemode Events update. Didn’t make any changes to SP, and it the previous DLC (IGG2) was the last GTAO DLC that shared content with SP, and no bugs or performance issues.

 

Thank god for SteamDB.

Do we have a thread that documents changes to Singleplayer that have been a permanent negative due to Online updates?

But we still get all the up-dates, gigabytes and gigabytes of them to be honest. Doesn't matter that they are Online updates that we didn't ask for, but we still get them :D

Shark card sales happened.

 

Shark cards are a steady income for take two and rockstar. 

 

Single player DLC wouldn't make them as much money since is something players would only have to buy once. 

 

This also relates as to why cockstar stop putting new dlc cars on sp they want your money and sp makes them none. Simple.

Yes. Cockstar has completely abandoned their original SP fan base.

 

With so many updates solely for Online, it's no wonder SP crashes randomly.

 

But I also put blame on those who continually buy their shark cards.

It's been done since 2015. The game has been rotting since with new bugs introduced with each online exclusive update.

Unlike my silly, likely dumb, initial expectation, I do believe it's been long "archived" now, not really that profitable enough (they thought), when comparing with sharks and sh*ts, you know? Better times will soon come nonetheless, RDR maybe, for starters? ;) Not that sure yet about it's about SP longevity's true value though, we'll see....

V will certainly tag along "most likable previous ones" and stand as yet another iconic's original for it's greatest fans... I guess some sh*ts will never change...

No better option atm though, gotta go cowboy! :D

I've recently talked to a developer who joined in my session, he has pretty cool. He explained to me that no sp updates were released because of how big gta v online is. That's his pov, from my pov rockstar gets enough money from shark cards and will never release sp content

Did you ask him why they treat single player like sh*t? About why they stopped adding anything like the Heist vehicles that they told us to keep asking for when we learned they were blocked from single player and deleting topics asking for vehicles to be added to single player? I know its because of Shark Cards but still.

Damm dude this is late. Sadly Rockstar f*cked us over regarding SP DLC and focused on GTA:O instead. But whats done is done

I suppose a wondering to why a newer GTA game (even extensions/campaigns) has been stalled later or hasn't been released. Focus is on other non-GTA games it seems, and with GTA...the Online feature has been a huge focal point. Man, I remember when GTA lll came out, in came Vice City, then VC Stories, San Andreas. Then IV, EFLC and 5 years later after IV, was V. After V, while the honeymoon is over and it's still alright, I'm also not holding much after it. VI will have to wow and be different than V. 🤓

I would pay for a single player Online car pack DLC. Even if it was just Trevors Online TPI tank top, I would buy it. I wish that the streamers that Rockstar invite would ask for this. If Rockstar did this they would be forgivin for GTA V in my books.

To be honest, R* has no excuse for not notifying us of the DLC's cancellation.

They could of easily said 'Sorry, no DLC; Online's too successful'.

Not to mention they could of at least released something very small in SP as compensation (see poster above for an idea of "something small".)

Yeah, they should have at least apologized for lying to us.

They didn't even give us the new flight school and assassination missions they said we'd get for single player.

The flight school missions were turned into the San Andreas Flight School update for Online(which we at least got the vehicles for in Single player so its not too bad) and the assassination missions were added exclusively to GTA Online on Patch 1.15 on last gen and removed from current gen around the Freemode update. It was promised before the business update was out and SPECIFICALLY said they were for Story Mode.

Yep everything was cancelled to milk GTA Online and soon Red Dead Online. The Casino Heist was a part of the Agent DLC (Starring Trevor and the Canon continuation of the Story) which was partly recycled into the GTA Online Doomsday Heist and parts of it in the original Online Heists particularly the Kuruma steal mission and the Prison Break.

We know how different pieces of GTAO’s DLC fit into the original SP DLC design, but has anyone with any info regarding it ever pieces together the full picture?

 

Last I heard was there were going to be three DLCs. The first and main one being the canon story continuation with Trevor. The other two being more Undead Nightmare-like with Michael and Franklin, and zombies and aliens.

Yep. I don't know the exact order though, but the zombie DLC would have been PS4, X1 and PC only and the alien and agent DLC would have been on all platforms. Plus if anyone DID have substantial info about them, they wouldn't share it since Rockstar and Take Two would be on their ass using every dirty trick they can get away with. Thanks a lot GTA Online.

Also that some of the more sci-fi themed/wacky vehicles were going to be part of Franklin or Michael’s DLC as secret/special/Easter egg vehicles or something - comparable to UN’s Four Horses and Unicorn.

 

I do wonder how Michael and Franklin’s DLCs we’re going to work. Their respective DLCs were going to center around them, but were the other characters still be available to play as? And what genius decided to stick Michael with the zombie DLC instead of the alien one?

 

Pretty amazing too considering that the two “what-if” DLCs would contain complete map overhauls. As well as the alien one basically wrapping up the chiliad mystery. Now I’m getting pissed thinking about all the wasted potentional GTA V had. We could have had some great f*cking content.

Yep. The mural on the mountain is actually for the 3 DLC's. UFO is for the Alien DLC, Egg is for the zombie DLC and the jetpack is for the agent DLC. These will never see the light of day I'm afraid except but scavenged for content by GTA Online. 

@Fun 2 Assuming Yan's prediction about Bully 2 being the next game after RDR2 is correct, Would his prediction for some GTA V Story DLC after RDR2 Hold any water?

R* should be absolutely crazy to release an SP DLC for a game after 5 years. There'll be no profit for them. Even EFLC didn't sold that well.

Why not? GTA Online still gets DLC Updates and the game is as popular as ever. EFLC didn't sell that well due to timed Xbox 360 exclusivity and it was early enough in the gen with WAAAAAY less people with sufficient Internet connection. GTA V is still selling like hotcakes with more than 80 million copies sold so there is still money on the table. The DLC'S were 70% complete according to Yan so honestly anything can happen but I have a feeling nothing will.

If a dev wants to release a DLC they do it at least until one year after the game's release for maximum profit. Not when the game has experienced a price drop. 

 

GTA V still sells because of Online. People who wanted to play the SP are already done.

Quoting myself from another thread...

 

GTA V sold over 90 million copies. A lot of people bought it twice, so cut that number to 45 million. If only a mere 15% of those 45 million purchase DLC, that's still over 6 million copies sold. To put that number in perspective, the original Gears Of War sold 6 million copies total to date.

 

That's 6 million copies sold even though a whopping 85% of people who own the game don't even buy it.
