GTA Online can be like marmite, you either love it or you hate it. One thing that everyone always seems in unison over, however, is the well crafted stories Rockstar Games has released over the years.
In a recent interview with GQ Magazine about the new Cayo Perico Heist content in GTA Online, two of the developers at Rockstar Games, Tarek Hamad and Scott Butchard, briefly spoke about this topic, confirming that the studio will “absolutely” continue to tell single-player stories in the future, regardless of GTA Online’s success.
“Whatever lies ahead for the inevitable sixth entry in the iconic series, Hamad is conclusive when we ask if Rockstar will continue to tell single-player stories, even as Online goes from strength to strength: ‘Absolutely.'”
The two developers also touched upon the new update’s single-player functionality – a first for Heists in GTA Online – and how Rockstar wants to bring more single player-content into GTA Online in the future:
“I think you can see [a blend of solo and multi-play] with Online and I think going forward we’re going to inject more of that single-player element in there.”
Famously, Grand Theft Auto V has yet to receive any offline single-player DLC, whereas GTA IV featured the two incredible expansions: The Lost and the Damned and The Ballad of Gay Tony. While we’ll probably won’t see anything on that level, it’s good to know Rockstar isn’t planning on giving up on the single player narratives anytime soon.
