GTA Online: The Contract DLC receives fans’ backlash despite Dr. Dre’s inclusion

Before we go deeper into what the fans had to say, let’s have an overview of what Rockstar has added in The Contract DLC update.

Players can now join forces with Los Santos’ most renowned hustler and his friends in the newly launched GTA Online DLC. As per Rockstar, the update is a whole new adventure for solo players as well as those who join each other in groups.

Moreover, the update also brings GTA V’s protagonist Franklin Clinton, among others. With their partnerships in the Agency, players will work alongside several new and old faces, such as Franklin’s friend Lamar Davis. The loyal sidekick, Chop, and the Agency’s lead in-house hacker, Imani, are also there.

What’s interesting to know is that by working together with partners, players will get to help Dr. Dre in resolving a high-stakes theft. Dr. Dre’s stolen phone is the talk of the town, as the rumors suggest it has some of the exclusive tracks, yet-to-be-released by the musical legend. So, players have to find it before anyone else does and leaks them.

Well, it seems to be a nice contract to take up and finish, isn’t it? However, it seems like the fans of GTA Online don’t really think so.

Following the launch of The Contract, most of the reactions from the players have been heavily negative, to say the least. While some said that they were facing problems in the gameplay, others were just outright ignorant of the update.

They also didn’t like that Rockstar once again avoided any kind of GTA 6 announcement. Some of the fans even went on to complain about the lack of Bully 2-related news, thus criticizing the publisher.

Have a look at the angry reactions:

Everyone seems to only want GTA 6.

 

The issues don’t end here though.
