Is GTA V still getting story DLC?

I must admit – I’m quite addicted to GTA V at the moment. While the recent release on PC has been keeping me busy with some truly fun online heists, it’s the single-player that has me hooked. Sure it’s often crass, sometimes silly and always far too serious for its own good, but it really is a fun ride to accompany the three crazy protagonists on. And who knows, we could finally get a bit more to chew on in the future.

Although, it seems like even Rockstar and Take-Two aren’t sure when that’s happening. During an earnings call last night, the question about the announced story DLC cropped up again – which got Take-Two chairman and CEO Strauss Zelnick very confused.

“We haven’t discussed any story-based downloadable content. We did talk about heists. We have different recollections.”

Digging up transcripts from this exact call last year, media on the call pointed out that company president Karl Slatoff did confirm the DLC back then – although in a rather laid back, not incredibly serious way. It’s something that slipped Zelnick’s mind it seems, with the CEO backtracking on his confusion in a statement not too long after the call.

In an email to Game Informer, Take-Two vice president of corporate communications and public affairs Alan Lewis clarified story DLC statements:

“Strauss misspoke during today’s call, as over a year ago Rockstar Games had said that they were exploring story mode content for Grand Theft Auto V. However, no further information has been released since. As always, we leave it to Rockstar Games to share information about their games when they’re ready.”

So the good news is that it’s still, possibly, coming one day. But considering the silence on Rockstar’s part, coupled with the inordinate amount of time Heists took, I wouldn’t look to the horizon with hope for anything soon.

    but but, more DLC would definitely justify a 2016 GOTY edition … which year, 2013, 2014 or 2015? I’m not quite sure. All 3?

      GTA4 had two story DLCs and both were pretty good. Some say it was even better than the main story. So a GOTY is inevitable if there are indeed more DLC to come

          It was. Or you could buy the main game with the DLC. But it was nice of Rockstar. They also released the RDR DLC as standalone

    They can take their time, the thing is GTA Online is more fun than Destiny or any other online game at the moment for me. Even Borderlands. Plus it’s rewarding to spend cash on a new car and pimp it like the NFS games of old.

      its litarraLY games with in games , golf and tennis games should act quick , the next GTA you buy , will be the only game u need

      Car games(Gold , tennis , flying , FPS ) need to rethink how they would appose GTA , if u think about it , rockstar can tweak the engine , so that when u do races u have a “racing engine” vs the normal ingame engine that runs eveything , now with all the activities having specialized engines imagine….

      need i mention all the activities GTA online has….Arm wrestling anybody ?

      Basiicaly my point is NEXT GTA = over 6 games in one …no need to purchase ANOTHER
