Grand Theft Auto 5 Source Code Leak Unveils 8 Abandoned Single-Player DLCs


In yet another cybersecurity hurdle for Rockstar Games, the source code for Grand Theft Auto 5 has found its way online, courtesy of a substantial leak. And the gaming community has wasted no time dissecting the code, uncovering a treasure trove of information that includes details about eight single-player DLCs that were once in the works but, unfortunately, never made it to the final game.

Insider Gaming shed light on the canceled DLCs, attributing their demise to the overwhelming success of the Online mode and the perception that the original GTA 5 story felt sufficiently complete. Consequently, Rockstar opted to redirect resources towards GTA Online and the production of next-gen versions of the game, leading to the abandonment of these DLC projects.

The leaked source code now sheds light on the canceled single-player DLCs that could have added intriguing layers to the GTA 5 narrative.

Here are the codenames for the eight DLCs that never came to fruition:

  • SP Assassination Pack
  • SP Manhunt Pack
  • SP Norman Pack
  • Agent Trevor
  • Relationship Pack
  • Enterprise Pack
  • Prologue DLC
  • LibertyV DLC

Two names stand out immediately: “Prologue DLC,” suggesting a dive into events preceding the main storyline, and “LibertyV,” hinting at a potential return to Liberty City for another adventure. The intriguing “Agent Trevor” raises the possibility of seeing Trevor taking on the role of (some sort of) an undercover agent.

Regrettably, these single-player DLCs are now consigned to history. As the anticipation for Grand Theft Auto 6 grows, fans await the chance to return to Vice City and experience Rockstar’s next evolution in the iconic franchise!
