GTA Online will receive more solo content in the future

By Sean Carey,
Rockstar Games recently added a bunch of new content to GTA Online with the Cayo Perico Heist update. The update introduced a new island location, new weapons, vehicles, and a heist that could be completed solo. Now, Rockstar has revealed that more single-player content will come in the future.

Rockstar design director Scott Butchard told GQ that solo content for GTA Online was something the team had been thinking about for a long time. "It’s something that’s been on our minds for quite some time, and the community has been vocal about it. It’s something we’re keen to carry forward."

Butchard continues by saying that players should be able to choose their own approach when it comes to a heist and that playing with a team or solo has different benefits. "We want to respect teams and players who want to play co-op. But at the same time still allow solo players to still get just as valid an experience out of it. There’s perks to both.

“If you go in there by yourself, you’re taking 100% of the cut, and it’s a lot easier to do stealth and plan when you’re not on comms. With multiple players, you can split up and do multiple things at once. You can take more of the secondary objectives, so I could send Tarek off to the control tower to take down air defences while I start looting from the wee cash piles.”

“I think you can see that with [GTA Online] and I think going forward we’re going to inject more of that single-player element in there,” Butchard confirms.
