Remember that incredible trailer for GTA V’s online features way before the game was released? That essentially sold me on Grand Theft Auto with its hints and promises of co-operative online heists. The game was released in October last year without any online functionality at all; that was all patched in later. Three quarters of a year on, and we’re still waiting for online heists. Originally planned for release this autumn, it’s unfortunately been delayed.
“We know many fans have been eagerly awaiting the release of the Online Heists that we had planned to release for you this spring, and they are taking more time to create than originally anticipated,” Rockstar said in a post about the I’m Not a Hipster” update that’s hitting GTA online instead of the much anticipated Online Heists.
“We are very sorry for the delay, and are working hard to bring them to you as soon as we can. Please know that we are focused as always on making the best possible content for you to play and we are thankful to all of you for your patience, understanding and support.”
It’s cool that Rockstar is continuing to support the game, but I think most people are past GTA V by now. Of course, the game will soon be coming to the new consoles and PC along with a visual upgrade. If you haven’t played the game yet, I certainly recommend picking it up for those platforms when it is available, then you can join everyone else in waiting for Online Heists.
Do you still play GTA V online? Are you waiting for Online Heists?
