There have been quite a few Grand Theft Auto spin offs over the years, from Liberty City Stories and Vice City Stories to The Ballad Of Gay Tony and The Lost & The Damned. Since the launch of Grand Theft Auto V there has been a wait for news on some more single player story content. After all San Andreas is a ripe location for all sorts of tales to unfold in, but Rockstar has been silent on the subject. Now, in an interview with IGN, the studio has spoken and has essentially said don’t hold your breath.
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.
The popularity of GTA Online is to blame if you’re waiting for single player content. That alone gets 8 million logins per week which is why Rockstar is so heavily invested in it.
