If you’ve enjoyed swimming through the sea and destroying everything in your path, then odds are you’re interested in learning more about potential Maneater DLC plans. While the game itself only takes about ten hours to beat, some are wondering if developers will continue to expand the story with some DLC. Here’s what we know so far!
What are the Maneater DLC Plans?
At the time of writing, there are no public DLC plans for Maneater. However, not all hope is lost, as there is some talk that the development team at Tripwire is being split into two groups, one focused on main game updates and another focused on DLC. However, these talks are simply industry rumors at the time and have not been publically confirmed by Tripwire.
It’s also worth noting that there is technically a DLC that has been released already, the Tiger Shark Adaptation. This allows players to play the game as a Tiger Shark, instead of the Bull Shark, which is essentially capable of destroying everything in its path. So even if there there isn’t more story-focused DLC in the pipelines, it’s possible that developers could simply add in different kinds of sharks for players to play as, or possibly add in a New Game Plus mode.
In an interview with Indie Obscura, Tripwire’s John Gibson declined to comment about any Maneater DLC plans, indicating that the team could be tossing around some different ideas, but hadn’t settled on anything quite yet. However, it’s really unclear at the time of writing if any DLC is coming in the near future.
It’s also worth noting that Maneater is going to be released on the Nintendo Switch sometime in 2020, so developers are likely focused on that project right now. However, once the game has been successfully adapted for the Switch, developers could possibly begin working on some DLC. Time will tell.
In the meantime, you’ll have to settle for the ten hours of playtime we’ve been given so far! Maneater is now available for purchase on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC.
