To further lend proof to the notion that Rockstar Games isn't interested in adding single-player content to Grand Theft Auto 5, the company has announced yet another update to its multiplayer component, GTA Online. Called Bikers it lets you form your own Motorcycle Club for up to eight players.
In addition to this, it brings a host of roles ranging from fresh Prospects to club Presidents with a massive slate of new competitive and co-op gameplay, along with a range of new motorcycles, properties that include motorcycle clubhouses with a special custom biker mechanic, and venues for seedy business ventures.
This follows up the game’s last expansion, Further Adventures in Finance in Felony that released in June. With all of Rockstar’s focus on new GTA Online content, we wonder if there are plans to go beyond this. For now though, it seems unlikely.
GTA developer Rockstar has been in the news albeit for the wrong reasons. Most recently erstwhile studio head Leslie Benzies, suing the studio for $150 million over unpaid royalties.
The lawsuit claims that GTA series creators, Dan and Sam Houser tried to force Benzies out of the company and unjustly terminating $150 million in royalty payments "based upon arbitrary actions by the company's royalty Allocation Committee, a committee that may or may not have actually ever met." Benzies also accused Sam Houser specifically of "mounting resentment" that Benzies received the same compensation from Take-Two as the Houser brothers.
