Rockstar admits that there is no story DLC in development for Grand Theft Auto V.

The developer clarified in an interview with IGN that the GTA V team will continue to develop GTA Online instead.

In April last year, the Rockstar teased “some very exciting” story mode DLC that was expected to release before Christmas.

However, in May of this year, Grand Theft Auto publisher Take-Two Interactive claimed that story DLC hadn’t been suggested.

"Right now our focus is on GTA Online which has exceeded our expectations," said Rockstar North design director Imran Sarwar this week.

"We currently have all key members of the team that launched Grand Theft Auto V focused on supporting GTA Online in every capacity.

"The community we've been able to foster is massive, growing each day, and we have so many ideas that have yet to make it into the game."

It was also revealed during a financial meeting that GTA Online was the largest source of income for Take-Two during its last financial quarter.

Of the 54 million units of GTA V sold, 70 percent of online users had engaged with the game’s multiplayer component.
