According to the leaked GTA V source code, Rockstar Games scraped a whole game named GTA Tokyo! Here are the details!
Grand Theft Auto V (GTA 5) fans have been hoping for extra solo adventures in the game. Recently, folks dug into the game’s secret files and found clues about new single-player content.
But now, it looks like Rockstar Games might have said no to these plans, leaving fans feeling unsure.
What is GTA Tokyo?
Before it could become a big deal, GTA Tokyo got canceled. This game was going to be set in Tokyo, bringing a fresh vibe to the Grand Theft Auto series.
It was designed for the old PS2, offering a new place for players to explore in the GTA world.
Rumors about this Tokyo-themed Grand Theft Auto game started floating around back in 2016. The recent leak from the studio confirms that these rumors were true.
Sadly, the game got canceled before the creators could officially tell everyone about it.
GTA Tokyo had the potential to be a really cool game. Games like Yakuza have already shown us how awesome it can be to have open-world adventures in the lively streets of Japan.
It’s a bit of a bummer that we won’t get to experience that with GTA Tokyo.
GTA 5 Online cost us a couple of single-player DLCs
During the era of Grand Theft Auto IV, the concept of single-player downloadable content (DLC) was a thriving endeavor for game developers.
The success of DLCs like “The Ballad of Gay Tony” and “The Lost and the Damned” propelled the game to new heights, marking a pivotal moment in the industry.
Fast forward to GTA 5, a game that would surpass its predecessor, and the anticipation among long-time fans for a similar DLC experience reached a crescendo.
However, the landscape of the gaming industry had transformed, with the live service business model overshadowing the traditional narrative-focused DLCs.
No extra stories in GTA 5
Despite early indications from leaked source code files that suggested the development of single-player DLCs for GTA 5, Rockstar Games ultimately steered away from this path.
These canceled DLCs and whispers of a scrapped GTA Tokyo game for the PS2 now exist as fragments of unrealized potential.
The disappointment among the fanbase is palpable. The fans had hoped for an evolution of GTA 5’s narrative akin to the impactful expansions seen in GTA IV.
As the gaming community grapples with this revelation, questions linger about what could have been and what Rockstar’s future holds for the iconic franchise.
