Online heists are finally coming to GTA V

1 min read


One of the features that drew me to GTA V’s online component was the promise of Online heists, where a group of players can work co-operatively to break in to places and rob them blind. A year on from the game’s original release and that particular feature still isn’t in the game. Rockstar has finally given us an indication of when they’ll be coming.

The house of GTA released an infographic detailing just how much time you’ve all spent playing GTA Online since its launch. It’s really quite staggering. Players from 224 countries have spent 2.3 billion hours in the game between the game’s online launch in October last year, to the end of October this year. That’s 33,834,423 players globally (making destiny’s 9.5 million accounts a little laughable), for a total of 5.9 billion jobs carried out. In that time there have been 245, 682, 645 in-game selfies captured – about 432 every minute. That’s mental.


In the same post, Rockstar re-iterated that online heists will be coming soon – with the game’s first update to the online section for the Ps4 and Xbox One. The game will have a day one update on those systems, but that’s for the game proper. As soon as the online gets patched, you’ll be ready to jump in to online heists. Finally.

“We know you’re all excited for more Updates to come and we’ve got some really exciting stuff in the works to continue adding to, expanding and evolving the world of Grand Theft Auto Online – including the highly anticipated launch of Online Heists which will be available for all four consoles as the first GTA Online Update to happen after the game launches on PS4 and Xbox One,” said Rockstar.

“We’ll have some details on that very soon as well.”

GTA V is out on the newer systems next week Tuesday. Are you heading back to Los Santos?

    I’ll be highly pissed off if heists hit the current gen before it hits previous gen.

      Dude if it even goes to last gen , sounds like it’s only new gen to be honest

        Yeah, they state “all four consoles” but I won’t hold my breath.

      I wouldn’t be surprised if that happens, judging from Rockstar’s actions lately.

    Ok , so basically , rock star are giving us what was promised a year ago , the catch is , U need to upgrade to new gen or be a master race bitch ?

    It angers me , if I had known I would never have gotten gta v on launch day I would of waited until the next feb version

    Some fucking dogey businesse practices going on here

    I wonder when the class action lawsuit starts , mis information much rockstar ?

    For real if the hesits don’t work with last feb but do with new gen then rockstar have truly fucked up

    I will get gta v for pc , purely to rampage with a mate trough the streets , won’t replay the whole game to much time

    Hopefully online works with in the first 3 months ? And the city is not so bare bones like its gta 4

    I personally feel rockstar have slipped from top developer to 2nd best , lies lies lies and PR marketing bullshit

    Hmmmmmm…. I didn’t buy this last year, and I don’t think I will this year!! Next game on my radar will be Far Cry 4 but only a month after it launches so that they can fix whatever is going to be wrong with it!! Other than that, I have Fifa, Destiny and Sherlock and all 3 of them makes me happy!!

      Month after release ?

      With the current state of Ass Creep Unity, you might want to wait 2-3 months 😉
