Rockstar Games just announced that the character will dive into a new adventure from next December 15, 2021, although this time it will The Contract, the next GTA Online update in which we will meet more than one familiar face and enjoy new Dr. Dre themes made specifically for the game.
As you can see in the trailer on these lines, GTA Online: The Contract it is set several years after GTA V. Franklin has thrived and started his own business, a “celebrity solutions agency” whose services are as murky as they seem. To bring the agency to fruition, Franklin will do pineapple with Lamar Davis and his own Dr. Dre. The famous rapper had collaborated in the past with the saga, for which he had released Some songs (and in which it was even parodied by CJ in San Andreas), but this time he will have his own character and in fact the story will revolve around him.
According to Rockstar’s initial synopsis, Dr. Dre has had the new songs he was composing stolen from him and will commission Franklin’s agency to retrieve them. It is the most important contract they have received so far and they have no intention of spoiling it, so they will undertake “a wild and hilarious trip through Los Santos that will take you from the streets of old Franklin to the hottest parties in town, and from libertine mansions to the FBI offices“. All this while old friends join us as is the case of the mythioc mythical chop.

Far from being the tribute that the saga deserved, this Definitive Edition has ended up having more of disappointment than definitive, as our colleague Francisco J. Brenlla (aka Franchuzas) in the MeriStation analysis.

This resulted in the corresponding sabotage of the community and in which the developer will be forced to withdraw the game from sale. All accompanied by technical problems, bugs and legal disputes for several expired licenses that were still in the title files. The war between modders and Take Two has been fierce in the courts and networks, but with the decisions to bring back the originals and gift them to GTA Trilogy buyers, Rockstar hopes to defuse things and start the game. long road to redemption ahead of this compilation. We will see if with The Contract things work again as they should.
