Grand Theft Auto V is widely considered one of the greatest video games ever made, but we could have spent even more time in that world until Rockstar Games pulled the plug on eight lots of planned DLC...

Last year, Rockstar Games was hit by a massive hack which saw over 100GB of content released online about various projects they've been developing. While we'd believed that was the end of it, additional data has now surfaced, including the entirety of Grand Theft Auto V's source code and details on the scrapped Bully 2 game. 

This appears to be from the same leak orchestrated by the teenager who was recently sentenced to life in a hospital prison. However, some of the content he shared privately seems to have been made public in response to the punishment handed down to him. 

Many gamers have already taken a deep dive into that GTA V source code, learning that Rockstar once had plans for as many as eight different pieces of DLC for the game. 

These were all scrapped (presumably because there was more money to be made in GTA Online), though we've previously heard it didn't happen because GTA V's story was considered "very, very complete." Next-gen ports also took up much of Rockstar's time, as did the upcoming Grand Theft Auto VI

According to Insider Gaming, the DLC included:

- SP Assassination Pack
- SP Manhunt Pack
- SP Norman Pack
- Agent Trevor
- Relationship Pack
- Enterprise Pack
- Prologue DLC
- LibertyV DLC

So, yes, we were once going to catch up with the game's leads again and even return to Liberty City. Heck, it even sounds like Rockstar was planning a crossover of some sort with 2003's infamous Manhunt game, making it all the more disappointing that none of this DLC got to see the light of day. 

GTA V was developed by Rockstar North. Released in 2013, it is the fifth main instalment in the Grand Theft Auto series and takes place in the fictional state of San Andreas, following three criminals - Michael, Trevor, and Franklin - as they navigate a sprawling open-world environment.

Throughout the game, players engage in heists, missions, and various criminal activities, and it's been praised for its storytelling and vast open-world design, eventually becoming one of the best-selling video games of all time, earning widespread acclaim for its ambitious scope and engaging gameplay.

The sequel, GTA VI recently got its first teaser trailer and confirmation it will be released on the current generation of consoles in 2025.
