Rockstar’s parent company Take Two Interactive has admitted that it “misspoke” during an earnings call earlier this week when it claimed that it had not previously discussed plans for story mode DLC for Grand Theft Auto 5.
In a message to Game Informer, Take Two’s VP of corporate communications and public affairs acknowledged that “Strauss [Zelnick, CEO] misspoke during today’s call, as over a year ago Rockstar Games had said that they were exploring story mode content for Grand Theft Auto V”.
Earlier this week, Strauss Zelnick denied that Take Two had ever discussed DLC for GTA 5’s story mode, telling listeners: “No, we haven’t discussed any story-based downloadable content. We did talk about the Heists and they’ve been released.”
Presumably Zelnick meant that they hadn’t talked about the DLC in public before, but who knows? We’re still Getting GTA 5 story DLC, along with the free online content planned, and that’s all that matters!
