Strauss Zelnick is CEO of Rockstar mother bird Take-Two, and exactly the sort of man to know what’s going on with GTA 5. In a recent investor call, he said that more Lost and Damneds and Ballad of Gay Tonys would definitely follow the new game. He added that “those discussions will come from Rockstar in the normal course” and it was “way too early to discuss those plans”. But it’s November 2nd and the Christmas ads are out in the shops, says I – so we’re ruddy well going to discuss GTA DLC.
Zelnick continued: “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.”
Multiplayer DLC would be a first for the series. Would you rather see new chunks of story or regular map packs dropped into the game?
All of this speculation is to be conducted under a fog of spoiled sulkiness, of course – while GTA 5 is set for a Spring release date on consoles, there’s been no word on when it’s coming to PC.
