Many dedicated GTA 5 fans were wondering when the game would get some single-player content. Recent source code leaks have revealed several single-player DLCs that have since been cancelled.
In the days of GTA IV, developers were interested in creating single-player DLC to expand the story of their game. DLCs for GTA IV like The Ballad of Gay Tony and The Lost and the Damned raised the game to new heights.
Long-time fans were hoping for single-player DLC to evolve GTA 5 in the same way as GTA IV, but it wasn’t in the cards. There was DLC in development at one point according to leaked files in the source code.
The scale of these single-player DLCs varies, but the biggest ones would have really made waves. According to the files, there could have even been a plan to return to Liberty City, the setting of GTA IV and GTA Chinatown Wars.
Some of these single-player DLCs were converted into GTA Online content. This decision has disappointed fans of the series who were hoping for strong storytelling in single-player DLCs.
Additionally, there were some ancient files for what appears to be a scrapped GTA Tokyo game for the Playstation 2. It seems it didn’t make it far past the early stages of development and will likely never see the light of day.
