It is set to be a very busy period for all GTA V players over the next few weeks. Rockstar could be preparing to launch the GTA V 1.12 patch with the Capture Creator update this week, but after that attention will surely switch to Heists.
Heists has been the in-demand feature that has been heavily requested since the game launched in September 2013. However, Rockstar has kept gamers waiting and in reality very frustrated considering that it was meant to land ‘shortly’ after launch.
Better late than never though, Rockstar has finally promised that the GTA V Heists release date will come sometime in Spring. The developer has maintained that the Capture Creator and High Life updates will come first, but then it is all about Heists.
When it does come, you’ll be able to team up with a friend as well. Rockstar has confirmed that Heists will be fully supported by co-op, so you’ll be able to play Heists missions with friends for ‘glory and profit’ – a hint that Rockstar will still keep things competitive among your friends.
Is there almost a sense that GTA V Heists has been overhyped though to the point where Rockstar may not be able to meet fan expectations? Every single update that Rockstar release for the game, their comment section on the Newswire is instead flooded by Heists-related requests.
Rockstar knows deep down that this is the mode that will keep everyone interested in GTA V until the first major GTA V DLC arrives, but what will happen if the mode doesn’t live up to the hype?
Hopefully we won’t be talking about this as it’s Rockstar and they usually get things right, but it is something to bear in mind.
Let us know your thoughts on Heists now that it is finally coming in Spring. Are you worried that it may not live up to the dreams you once had?
