Hearing that Grand Theft Auto V’s Online will receive a Heists update on a certain release date should be good news to most gamers, but when this claim is made on April Fools it makes the information that much harder to believe. This is why we avoid reporting a lot of news around this time each year, although this GTA V Heists story seems to be the real deal, even though the DLC news arrived on the best prank day of the year.
Twitter user BriceCoates1 is known to leak news on GTA V and gave solid details about the Online Heists update in the past, but this time a date of April 20th was given as the longest time it will take to bring patch 1.12.
The so-called Lazy Gamer mentions that GTA V update 1.12 will be available to download before April 20th and as most fans expect, GTA Online Heists will be included in the next update.
You can see the tweet in the image above or directly on Twitter right here, although the rumor is met with a lot of jokes about the information arriving on April 1st. He continually denied that the claim was a joke by stating it’s, “Leaked NOT April Fool”.
Do you believe this leak about Heists DLC and the GTA V 1.12 update? To be fair, it’s pretty obvious they will arrive within that time anyway.
We touched on a number of jokes being played in an article yesterday, which revealed some poor attempts along with some quite convincing claims. While we did check for the GTA V 1.12 update yesterday and just before writing this article, it still is yet to release anywhere.
Personally, we believe this is more of a leak and not a joke considering Lazy Gamer is continuing to confirm the claim today as well. The interesting part will be if the GTA V 1.12 patch releases on or around that date, or way before, especially considering release patterns make this claim an obvious one.
