Even though GTA Online has had constant updates for the past eight years, GTA V still hasn’t had any extra single-player DLC. With no GTA 6 is in sight and another remaster on the way, we will explain if fans should expect any more single-player content, including a response from Rockstar.
The adventure of Franklin, Michael, and Trevor will be remembered for years to come as Rockstar’s innovative narrative process in GTA V broke new ground in terms of storytelling creativity.
Players expected to encounter them all once again in the form of some GTA V single-player DLC, similar to how GTA IV expanded upon its universe with The Lost and Damned and Ballad of Gay Tony. This hasn’t proven to be the case, however, with years passing without any new content.
GTA V is set to be re-released onto a third generation of consoles in 2022 on the PS5 and Xbox Series X, and people are still asking the question – will GTA V be getting any additional single-player content?
Is GTA V getting any single-player DLC?
Based on the most recently recorded comments from Rockstar regarding GTA V, the answer sadly seems to be a no.
Despite the love and support shown for GTA V and its characters and story, it appears that Rockstar is content to leave GTA V’s single-player aspect alone.
Rockstar explain why GTA V has had no single-player DLC
In a 2017 interview with GameInformer, Rockstar’s Director of Design at the time – Imran Sarwar – discussed a few reasons as to why GTA V has had no single-player DLC.
“With GTA V, the single-player game was absolutely massive and very, very complete. It was three games in one. The next-gen versions took a year of everyone’s time to get right, then the online component had a lot of potential, but to come close to realizing that potential also sucked up a lot of resources. And then there are other games – in particular Red Dead Redemption II.”
These three key reasons seem to be the stumbling block preventing any further single-player content for GTA V.
GTA Online’s success has been unprecedented. Despite the size of Rockstar Games, the size of GTA Online and RDR2 Online has understandably required a lot of work to maintain and grow.
Given that GTA V is the most successful piece of media ever, selling over 140 million copies and counting, it makes sense for Rockstar to ensure that a large portion of that revenue, GTA Online, continues to pour in.

Given the scope and scale of GTA V, Grand Theft Auto VI is expected to eclipse it in every way, meaning that there just probably isn’t any time to work on GTA V single-player content.

Here’s everything we know about Fortnite’s upcoming Creative 2.0, the next evolution of the extremely popular Creative mode.
Fortnite’s Creative mode is almost as popular as its Battle Royale, and its about to get a lot more advanced with the upcoming Fortnite Creative 2.0. Here’s everything we know about Fortnite’s Unreal Editor including what it is, its release date, and the leaks surrounding it.
Fortnite Creative mode allows players to create their very own experiences inside Fortnite, using assets to build their Creative Island any way they like. Other players can join these islands and earn XP while doing so, and player-made experiences are almost as popular as those created by Epic.
Fortnite Creative is about to get a major overhaul with Creative 2.0, giving players much more freedom to create whatever they like inside Fortnite.
Creative 2.0 shouldn’t be far away, so here’s everything we know including its release window, its Roblox-like monetization, and leaks surrounding it.

What is Fortnite Creative 2.0?
Fortnite Creative 2.0, also known as the Unreal Editor for Fortnite, will be the evolution of Creative mode, allowing the community to build their own games inside Fortnite. This is set to give players much more freedom over what they create, with popular insider HYPEX claiming that it “makes Creative look basic.”

Speaking to Fast Company, Epic Games CEO Tim Sweeney said that Fortnite Creative 2.0 will allow players to “build very high-quality game content and code . . . and deploy it into Fortnite without having to do a deal with us–it’s open to everybody.”
Similar to Roblox, Fortnite’s Unreal Editor will allow creators to monetize their content. “We’re building an economy,” explained Sweeney. “It will support creators actually building businesses around their work and making increasing amounts of profit from the commerce that arises from people playing their content.”
Fortnite Creative 2.0 release window
Fortnite Creative 2.0 is set to arrive at some point in 2022, likely in the final few months of the year.
Tim Sweeney gave an update on June 28, saying that Creative 2.0 is “Still on track for this year, but not ‘soon.'” So it’s unlikely that Fortnite Creative’s major overhaul will arrive during summer, but we could see it towards fall or winter.
HYPEX believes we’ll see it during Chapter 3 Season 4, which is set to go live in September 2022.

Apex Legends dev confirms fix for Ranked stream-sniping issues coming soon
The Apex Legends devs have confirmed a fix for the exploit allowing Bronze players to stream-snipe in high-Ranked lobbies.
Respawn Entertainment have confirmed that they’re currently working on a fix for the exploit that allows bronze Apex Legends accounts to stream-snipe players in high-Ranked lobbies.
Apex Legends players have dealt with their fair share of cheaters using frustrating exploits, such as the recent one that allowed players on Xbox consoles to completely crash the game’s servers.
Another exploit that’s particularly irritating is one that lets newly-made bronze accounts to immediately get into high-ranked lobbies to stream-snipe players. Now, Respawn Entertainment have responded to this issue.
In Ranked play, Apex Legends players have to play extremely well if they want to climb the ladder and access high-Ranked lobbies. However, cheaters were able to bypass this by using an exploit that lets them sneak into theses lobbies and take out the top players.
Pro player ‘HisWattson’ complained about this issue on Twitter, stating that it’s irritating to report cheaters only to encounter them again in different games. This caught the attention of the developers.
Apex’s Security lead Conor Ford confirmed that the devs are aware of the problem: “I can say that the bronze issue is currently being worked on as well so hopefully you won’t be seeing that soon.”
He didn’t provide any details about when exactly this fix will be implemented in the game, but it’s reassuring to know that Respawn Entertainment are aware of the problem and are currently looking into it.
This exploit allows previously-banned players to pop up and start causing problems in high-ranked lobbies. Hopefully, the Apex Legends update patch containing the fix for the exploit will arrive soon.

Apex Legends split date: Season 13 ranked map rotation, rank reset, & rewards
For those wondering what the split date is for the current season of Apex Legends, here are all the details you need to know.
Every season Apex Legends has a halfway-ranked split which resets player rank and also changes the map to keep things fresh. Here are all the details for Apex Legends Season 13’s split date.
The Apex Legends Season 13 split gives players a small mid-season reset to freshen things up. As well as a new map for Ranked Leagues, players will also experience a soft reset, motivating them to get back into playing ranked for either battle royale or Arenas.
For those interested in knowing more about the split, including the date it will occur, map change, how far your rank will be reset, and the kind of rewards you can expect, here’s our guide on the Apex Legends split date.
Apex Legends Season 13 split date
The Apex Legends split for Season 13 will take place on June 28 at around 10 AM PT / 1 PM ET / 6 PM GMT.
On this date, not only will the map change for Ranked Leagues, but a player’s rank for both Battle Royale Ranked Leagues and Ranked Arenas will be soft reset.
In order to keep things fresh and exciting through the season, the Apex Legends halfway split changes the ranked map and also resets a player’s rank by four divisions.
This means that if you finished the first split at Platinum IV, you will be reset back to Gold IV.
For the second split of Apex Legends Season 13, Ranked Leagues will be changing its map from Storm Point to World’s Edge up until the end of the season.
Many consider World’s Edge to be Apex Legend’s best map for ranked, so those who are yet to experience the map in Ranked Leagues are in for a treat.
The reward you receive at the start of the next season will be based on your highest rank achieved in either of the two splits.
For example, if you achieve Diamond rank in Split 1 but don’t play in Split 2, you will still receive the rewards for Diamond rank at the start of the next season. Keep in mind that to gain the rewards for the Apex Predator rank you must retain the rank until the split ends.
Players will obtain a shiny badge if they are able to achieve the same rank across the two splits within a season.
Here are the following rewards for each rank:
- Bronze – Badge & Holospray
- Silver – Badge & Holospray
- Gold – Badge, Holospray, & Weapon Cosmetic
- Platinum – Badge, Holospray, & Weapon Cosmetic
- Diamond – Badge, Holospray, Weapon Cosmetic, & Season-Long Dive Trial
- Master – Badge, Holospray, Weapon Cosmetic, & Season-Long Dive Trial
- Apex Predator – Badge, Holospray, Weapon Cosmetic, & Season-Long Dive Trial
