It has been three years since the release of GTA Online and it is still the pride, joy, and biggest money maker for Rockstar. However we may have seen the end of Rockstar’s efforts to keep GTA Online afloat.
According to reports from “Yan2295” a trusted source inside Rockstar, GTA Online will see a sharp decline in DLC production, then a complete stop near the release of Red Dead Redemption 2. The Export/Import DLC seems to have been the last big add on we will get.
“Rockstar North is “divided” in 4 parts as of right now. Some people are helping San Diego with RDR2, some people started working on the next GTA, and some people are working on another game. So you’re left with only a few people to work on GTA Online.” Yan said on his website.
I’m sad to see that GTA Online DLCs are coming to an end. I still enjoy exploring new updates and messing around with new gadgets. I can’t say I’m too surprised however. With the imminent release of RDR2, and its own online multiplayer, the time has come for Rockstar to put their focus elsewhere.
