GTA 6 might be the most hyped game of all time already. And all we really know about it, is that it's being made. Not a bad result for Rockstar Games, eh? Rumours, leaks and datamines are digging up unconfirmed details - like the reveal it might feature its (almost) first female playable character in a double-act inspired by Bonnie and Clyde.

We've also heard that the next GTA will take place in a fictionalised version of Miami for a possible return to Vice City. The open-world adventure is set to be a big deal, and now, leaks suggest that it'll be even bigger than the product we get when it first launches. The GTA 6 DLC plans might've been leaked way ahead of schedule. 

Is A GTA 6 DLC On The Way?

After the disappointment that GTA V didn't come through with the single-player story DLC that fans wanted, an insider has now revealed that the dream will be fulfilled in the new upcoming game. According to Tez2 - the leaker who first revealed that remakes of GTA IV and Red Dead Redemption 2 were scrapped - new locations are being planned for launch in GTA VI after the game comes out.

"The first wave of 'new cities and missions' we will receive as DLC will definitely be planned out before VI releases," the leaker has said on GTAForums. "And Rockstar will be able to allocate resources towards whatever new title they will work on after release."

This is an interesting touch for the new game, and it's something that fans have wanted for a while - so it looks like Rockstar is definitely planning on keeping the game around for a while. One of the big critiques of GTA V is that efforts soon moved on to giving GTA Online updates. It means we've been playing consistently since 2013, but still, we've been craving a single-player expansion.


What Will The GTA VI DLC Look Like?

Tez2 suggests what the new DLC could look like, and it seems as though the new additions to the map could come in the form of islands. "As for the new cities, I think for the most part we will receive instanced new cities or islands. Like Cayo Perico (GTA Online's heist island) or North Yankton (the state from the start of GTA V's story) style. If this is the case, Rockstar can introduce a new heist for the next GTA Online mode with each new DLC."

Looking back at the history of GTA, it was GTA IV that really blew us away with single-player DLCs. The Lost and Damned and The Ballad of Gay Tony felt like whole new games after the main one was released. If GTA 6 returns to single-player DLCs, this is a huge deal, as Rockstar's focus on longevity could be stronger than ever. GTA VI is going to be a big game - and perhaps, even bigger than we ever could have dreamed.
