GTA 5’s cut “James Bond Trevor” DLC was already part-shot, actor says

The GTA 5 Agent Trevor DLC episode could have been a real treat for fans on PlayStation and Xbox, before it was scrubbed sometime before 2017.

When Grand Theft Auto 5 confirmed it had canceled its story mode DLC, many – ourselves included – let out a collective groan. Rockstar’s increasing focus on the monolithic GTA Online at the time left little room for expansion elsewhere, robbing us of one of the great what-ifs of the time – Agent Trevor. Now, years later, the GTA 5 character’s actor, Steve Ogg, has offered up a few more details on what the canned project would’ve entailed, and we’re heartbroken all over again.

“Trevor was gonna be undercover – he works for the feds,” Ogg says during a recent Q&A stream about the open-world game. “And we did shoot some of that stuff with ‘James Bond Trevor’ – he’s still kind of a fuck up, but he’s doing his best to pretend to be like [a secret agent]. We shot some stuff and then it just disappeared and [Rockstar] never did it, they never followed up on it.”

As per datamined info from the Rockstar leaks at the end of last year, ‘Agent Trevor’ was originally one of three episodic packs planned for GTA 5’s post-launch story DLC – the other two being ‘Zombie Apocalypse’ and ‘Alien Invasion.’ Based on Ogg’s comments, our favorite off-the-rails protagonist could’ve had a ridiculously funny character arc in on of the best games ever, culminating with him taking a trip into space – we’re not kidding.

While the DLC was silently axed sometime between 2013 (when it was initially announced) and 2017 (when its cancelation was confirmed), much of its content was adapted for GTA Online’s Doomsday and Diamond Casino heists. Agent Trevor, specifically, was folded into the multiplayer game‘s Doomsday heist, as confirmed by a script highlighting AI neural network Clifford as a featured character.

Though Trevor’s 007 moment has, unfortunately, been lost to the annals of time, it’s great to hear it mentioned once again all these years later. We can imagine he would’ve made a splendid not-so-secret agent, especially if he was officially given the license to kill – not that he needed that in the first place.

While all hopes of GTA 5 story DLC are dashed, maybe there’s a small sliver of hope that Rockstar will go back to producing story-based DLC when GTA 6 arrives. However, with GTA Online continuing to be a massive draw, we fear that any additional content after the GTA 6 release date will suffer a similar fate and will be targeted towards Rockstar’s live service money-spinner.
