“Grand Theft Auto V’s” developers at Rockstar Games may have revealed story DLC or a brand new title behind closed doors at Gamescom 2015. Pictures and recent trademark filings have sparked rumors that the studio is gearing up for its next big project.
The news comes to Design Trend via fresh tweets from Gamescom 2015 attendees that show an obviously blocked off Rockstar Games booth at the convention. Given some of the software outfit’s most recent developments, speculation is on the rise.
Such murmurs begin with the fact that “Grand Theft Auto V” still doesn’t have any single player DLC to flesh out its campaign. Since the game’s original release nearly two years ago, Rockstar has spent most of its time expanding upon the wildly popular “Grand Theft Auto Online” mode. In March of this year, a collection of multiplayer heists was patched into the platform. They had been promised since launch.
That being said, many of “Grand Theft Auto V’s” predecessors have featured story DLC expansions. In “Grand Theft Auto IV” The Lost And Damned and Ballad Of Gay Tony missions were generally well received. As of now, it looks like the fifth game may not feature anything like it. That is, unless this secret Gamescom presence debuts it.
This issue is compounded by Rockstar’s recent trademark filings as well. Just ahead of E3 2015, a longstanding filing for a software product called “Agent” was renewed by the company. The game was first announced at E3 2009 as a PS3 exclusive, and it features a Cold War espionage motif set in the late 1970s. Other than a few vague images, little about the endeavor has been publicly acknowledged since. Is it possible that the first “Agent” reboot footage might have been shown to press this week? The evidence is certainly there to suggest it.
Possibly the most intriguing question to ask about “Agent’s” revival is if its exclusivity will stick. An exclusive title from a top-tier developer like Rockstar would be a major win for Sony platforms that could desperately use exclusive games. However, contracts can expire and plans can change.
This essentially leaves Rockstar’s Gamescom booth caught between two rumors. In the best case scenario, both of them could be true.
Which one of the two would you rather have: brand new story DLC for “Grand Theft Auto V” or a completely new experience with “Agent?” Let us know in the comments section!
