We never got any real DLC packs for Grand Theft Auto 5, which is a crying shame given how brilliant the main story mode is. GTA Online took up most of Rockstar's time, as the mode grew in popularity. However, it looks like we might be moving back towards proper single-player DLC with GTA 6.
Renowned Rockstar reporter Tez2 has taken to the GTA forums to discuss Rockstar's post-launch plans with Grand Theft Auto 6. They say that the developer will be pivoting towards proper expansions this time around, similar to the team's plans before GTA Online exploded in popularity.
The "expanding over time" means Rockstar will go back to how they were planning future content before GTA Online success boomed.
When GTAV released, development on SP DLC already started prior to release. That's how we found out about the audio files mentioning the Casino opening soon and other activities. Additionally, Liberty City was being ported to V, but at very early stages of development. Both projects have been scrapped, of course, back in 2015.
The first wave of "new cities and missions" we will receive as DLC will definitely be planned out before VI releases. And Rockstar will be able to allocate resources towards whatever new title they will work on after VI release.
As for the new cities, I think for the most part we will receive instanced new cities or islands. Like Cayo Perico or North Yankton style. That way, Rockstar can introduce a new heist for the next GTA Online mode with each new DLC. If we are lucky, we could receive a fully fledged new city from time to time.
If true, this is music to our ears. GTA IV received some great post-launch DLCs in the form of The Lost and Damned and The Ballad of Gay Tony, and if we're heading back in that direction that's only good news as far as we're concerned. This is only a report for now, but regardless, here's hoping!
