Since the news about the Freemode DLC hit yesterday. GTA V Story DLC is on hold once again. Since the focus is now solely on GTA V Online. There's no time to work on the story DLC at the moment. I was really hoping to see a story DLC, but that's probably not going to happen. IGN recently had an interview with the design director, and Producer of GTA V Imran Sarwar regarding if there will be any story mode dlc content in the works. This is the answer he gave.

“Right now our focus is on GTA Online which has exceeded our expectations. We currently have all key members of the team that launched Grand Theft Auto V focused on supporting GTA Online in every capacity. The community we’ve been able to foster is massive, growing each day and we have so many ideas that have yet to make it into the game. The evolution of GTA Online on these newer platforms is also an exciting prospect as the power of those systems is going to allow us to achieve even more.”

So basically there's no hope for the story Mode DLC. Rockstar's main focus is GTA Online right at this moment. We've had Story Mode DLC's in the past for the Grand Theft Auto series', but from the looks of it Grand Theft Auto V will not be having any Story DLC in the near future. Freemode is going to come out this Tuesday, but many people are going to be having that one question in the back of their mind. When will the Story mode get a DLC. Time will only tell, but for now we'll just have to wait.

R* is not fooling anyone.. The state of GTAO and the recent additions of updates and DLC has shown that their team has gotten smaller and that the content has also gradually gotten smaller with the exception of heists. I'm not buying into the whole "everyone is working their a**'s off on GTAO".

Their servers are still an issue and that stems back to 2013. There are tons of glitches/bugs that have been around since 2013 and more added with the 8th gen releases.. etc.

I'm grateful for what R* has given us and done, but don't sit there and tell us that you are pulling out all the stops for GTAO when it's very evident that your putting minimal work in while cashing in on your shark card scheme.

Just look at the Freemode events DLC. It's simply 17 "events" Which R* is tooting their horn like it's the second coming of GTAO. "new advancement in open world gameplay" Umm.. Sorry R*, but events and challenges like these are already in the game and in the Freemode. (gang attacks, distract cops, smuggler planes, Lester contracts, armored trucks etc).

The new events are welcomed, but don't pat yourself on the back like you're paving the way with innovation R*.

Exactly. They take months on end to push out a few new cars for DLC, while any experienced GTA V PC modder can crank something out in a matter of days.

Community they've "fostered" my ***. Community they've jerked around, pushed away, and screwed over. There are some serious *** hat monkey brained dumb mother ****ers making the big decisions about GTAO.

Article makes no official announcement to change the upcoming release of story mode DLC, this is all conjecture. The only mention of single player DLC was in a question which was not directly answered.

GTA V Story DLC is on hold once again.
Please tell me where this information comes from. It certainly is not from the article you linked.

The last official word from Rockstar on the story mode DLC is they are still working on it. This only shows they have been prioritizing GTA Online, which is something we have known since they last talked about story mode in january 2014. The only hold this is on is the hold its been on for the last year and a half. This article says absolutely nothing new.

This information is not solid. That article doesn't say anything at all about the story mode DLC. GOD GOHAN is just making assumptions.

I think a story mode DLC will happen, but we will probably have a long wait until we see it. I do think there's strong possibility that a story mode DLC will be next gen only.

There WILL be a SP DLC at some point, because they've already done some production with the VO actors and motion tracking suits, more than a year after the release.

How am I making assumptions when I read it from the article. Right now their main focus is not Story Mode, but Online. Like I said above.
Time will only tell, but for now we'll just have to wait.

Sarwar even states that. "Right now our focus is on GTA Online which has exceeded our expectations."

So there will be Story Mode DLC in the near future, but they haven't announced it yet. Because they're not working on it at the moment.

The only statement is that their focus is on Online. There is no statement that they are NOT focusing on story mode, like you say. That is assumption.

Yep they would rather put online first because it brings in more money from people who buy shark cards etc. I'd personally would like to see a SP DLC kinda disappointing tho. That they can't work on both.

What about Shawn Fonteno's instagram page 12 weeks ago? You can see him wearing a motion capture suit.... Also make sure you read the last post by aja.jade...
