GTA Online publisher praises single-player as 50% of players solo Cayo Perico

GTA Online is wildly popular, but for some players that old single-player itch is getting tougher to ignore every day. Rockstar's decision to forgo single-player GTA 5 DLC in favour of non-stop updates for GTA Online has always been controversial, but story-driven content like the Cayo Perico heist has managed to pretty effectively split the difference. A lot of players are doing Cayo Perico solo, and it seems parent company Take-Two is happy about the single-player possibilities.

"More than 50% of those playing the Cayo Perico heist are engaging with this as a new single-player experience," Take-Two revealed in its latest financial earnings call. CEO Straus Zelnick says the success of Cayo Perico as single-player content "wasn't coincidental", either.

"The folks at Rockstar Games intended to create a powerful single-player experience - a story-driven experience," Zelnick says. He adds that it's "a reminder" that Rockstar can do both multiplayer and single-player content at "the highest possible level of execution in our business."
