It’s official – GTA Online is now a single-player game

The latest bumper update to hit Los Santos confirms what we already knew: GTA Online is now a single-player game. Well, it’s at least a single-player game if you want it to be. The multiplayer offshoot of GTA 5 has dabbled in solo ventures over the last few years, but part two of its latest Drug Wars update – the first, named First Dose, having arrived in December; Last Dose having landed yesterday – drives independent interplay home on a grander, more obvious scale. And that’s no bad thing. 

Sure, you can still buddy up with pals and/or complete strangers within the sparkling San Andreas sprawl to your heart’s content, but as GTA Online fast approaches its 10th birthday, it is now, for my money, best enjoyed on your lonesome. Moreover, I reckon the distinguished steps GTA Online has made over the last few years to reach this juncture might even hint at what GTA 6 and its own online counterpart will look like whenever Rockstar is finally ready to pull the curtain back on its elusive, in-development project.
