Worrying rumors about GTA V DLC are spreading over the Internet. According to a source on GTA Forums, Rockstar has decided to replace the Single player on GTA V.
This source, which previously appeared back in 2013 before the release of GTA V, providing accurate info, states that, due the unforeseen success of micro transactions and GTA online in general, the company has replaced the SP DLC with an Online Map expansion model.
This model would consist of two paid DLC. The first of them, set to release in 2017, will take place on North Yankton and Liberty City. The second one would be released in 2018 and takes place on San Fierro and Las Ventures, locations that were built alongside Los Santos way back in the early development stages of GTA V and were finally scrapped from PS3 and Xbox 360 versions.
Down below you can read a summary of the original text from the GTA forums:
**Biker DLC: (Bikes, clothes, free roam missions) purchase clubhouse to activate biker free roam missions
Law and order DLC (Police free roam and vehicles) Purchase police vehicles to activate free roam police missions
The Luxury Living DLC (Mansions & Pets) Purchase Mansion to purchase exotic pets (Mansion grounds only)
The Blaine County and Paleto DLC (Animals in free roam) Animals online syncing workaround via VIP mission type activation
(Purchase hunting license and equipment to activate hunting objectives) (Purchase New warehouses and properties)
North Yankton and Liberty City (Online Map expansion) $£ Paid DLC 1 2017 sept (Not Yet Complete)
San Fierro and Las ventures (Online Map expansion) $£ Paid DLC 2 2018 oct Not Yet Complete
Vice City…. Not until GTA VI, some time around 2020 At the VERY earliest!
San Fierro and Las Ventures were built alongside Los santos way back in the early development stages of GTAV, Scrapped on PS3/Xbox for obvious reasons!! After more then 3 years of re building for PS4/XBO/PC, Both are still being worked on with a release target of October 2018!
Single player DLC has been replaced with Online Map expansion model! Mainly due to the unforeseen success of micro transactions and GTA online in general!
Liberty City will be released September 2017.. The DLC will include:
– A Open ticket (for city slickers) to Liberty City!
– A Open ticket (for Snow Blowers) to North Yankton!
– EXCLUSIVE VIP Membership (for High rollers) which grants Exclusive access to THE CASINO in Los Santos!
– Pre Order Bonus of 1 million GTA Casino chips for pre order!!
Micro transactions can NOT buy GTA CASINO CHIPS!
Liberty City, North Yankton and the Los Santos Casino scheduled together to keep player migration relatively balanced!!
Liberty City will enable you to trade on the stock market, once a Office has been Purchased! Similar to the current crate set up!
Both DLC’s will be priced equivalent to a full game!!
I’ve posted on this forum twice! (Not including this post) one was BEFORE the release of GTAV back in 2013 (Check back and have a careful read, compare it to what we have today) and one post was yesterday (2016)
Most if not everything mentioned in that 2013 post has been implemented or reworked into the current GTA Online we have today, from the old mission set up format, to individual heist roles, to the current free mode events!
With the Next four Updates to come, GTA Online will have utilised most if not all the work that went into GTAV such as animals, police vehicles, Stock Market, Blaine County etc.. Can’t say much more, there on to me…..
Keep Speculating and Keep up the great work GTA FORUM! You guys Rock!! **
He later says along with yan2295 that free dlc is supposed to end in Spring 2017.
This guy, softsecrets, leaked the heists, ceo, and free roam challenges months before gta v was released.
As always, take this info with tons of salt.
