GTA 5 DLC: Take-Two promises ‘interesting stuff’

Thursday, 1st November 2012 16:01 GMT By Jeff Dunn

GTA 5 publisher Take-Two has teased in an investor call that the upcoming open-world game’s DLC will feature plenty of “interesting stuff” when it is released.

“I think you can safely assume that Rockstar, as the label that led the charge in downloadable content with Grand Theft Auto 4, I think you’d have every reason to believe, purely because of the ground-breaking nature of the title itself and the multiplayer in the title, that there’s going to be a lot of interesting stuff. But I’ll leave that to Rockstar to announce,” said Take-Two CEO Strauss Zelnick.

With regards to a specific release date, however, Zelnick still would not budge.

“With regard to the date for Grand Theft Auto 5, spring 2013, we make those announcements based on what we think is best to market the title, and we think that’s the right way to describe it, and we’re thrilled with the way that is shaping up.”

In case you haven’t come into contact with the internet over the last week, Rockstar officially confirmed a Spring 2013 window for GTA 5 on the PS3 and Xbox 360 just a couple days ago. And yesterday, we told you about some new pre-order artwork that had surfaced for the game.

Speculation about a more specific release date has run rampant ever since, but it appears we’ll have to continue playing the waiting game for now.

    Rockstar has said awhile ago that they probably wouldn’t do big DLC anymore like the two for GTA IV. I recall them saying that it in the end wasn’t very profitable ro something.

    All fine and dandy…but i just only want to think of playing this very promising game first. DLC? We’ll see that then.

    Well, those DLCs were exclusive to Xbox 360 for quite some time. I wouldn’t be surprised at all if that hurt their overall sales, and therefore, I’m not sure what lessons can be learned from it. Unless 360 sales tanked too, I guess.

    @1 No it wasn’t that it wasn’t profitable, it was that it took quite a bit of time to make. So they’d in other words prefer to make quick snappy DLC to keep you playing. Instead of finishing the game, having a break then when DLC comes out you wonder to return or not as its been a few months.

    Actually it wasn’t profitable because they said less then 50% actually completed game so there wasn’t reason for them to buy DLC.

    I hope “interesting stuff” means more bigger mission packs and alternate interlaced storylunes like GTA4, or alternate-timeline stuff set in-world like Red Dead Redemption’s Undead Nightmare. If they’re going to reduce DLC to multi-player stuff like a good chunk of RDR and even Max Payne 3′s DLC, they’re not gonna sell an awful ton.

    Hopefully they fix how awful GTA4′s multi-player on PS3 was. Man was that ever a clusterfuck.
