GTA V Heists release deadline

By Updated on

Are you starting to get a little anxious on the seemingly never-ending wait for a GTA V Heists release date? Rockstar has promised that they will bring this GTA Online DLC to everyone in Spring, but with Spring ending officially in June, will Rockstar be able to deliver on their self-imposed deadline?

You won’t need us to remind you that GTA V Heists is the single most requested feature of the entire game since launch last year. Rockstar has kept everyone waiting ever since with smaller pieces of DLC, but as we move into May Rockstar will have to crank up their work load to ensure that they are able to get Heists out by June.

For those that are not aware, Spring 2014 officially ends on June 20, 2014. That means that Rockstar essentially has from now until that date to deliver the GTA V 1.13 update, the High Life update and the Heists content – all within Spring.

Having said that, it’s logical to assume that the High Life update may come with GTA V 1.13 combined, and then GTA V 1.14 will be the update which arrives with Heists, so they definitely have time to do it. As we told you in a previous report though, many gamers were expecting to see GTA V 1.13 and the High Life update last week, but Rockstar has kept completely silent.

You have told us that one of the reasons for this, is due to the persistent glitchers and cheaters in the game, with Rockstar having to spend extra time to fix the glitches before releasing another official update.

Obviously, this is just an assumption though. Rockstar could be having a problem with aspects of the High Life update which require further testing – owning multiple garages and preventing money glitches using duplicate cars for example.

Back to Heists though, are you confident that Rockstar can meet the theoretical deadline of June 20 when Spring 2014 ends? Imagine a scenario if they cannot meet this timeframe though – how would you feel about it?

  • Francis Jairam

    I bet its the glitching that is preventing them from release the update caused by the cheaters.

    • C@PO

      How can they blame the hackers gta v online has had its own problems from launch so rockstar need to stop with the bullshite and just deliver they sold 35 million copies of game, that’s more than enough to pay for the man power to resolve these so called glitches.

  • csagets

    I’d be more mad at cheaters to be be honest. It’s pretty likely that constant exploit fixes are pushing back actual updates.

  • Will

    Just saying Rockstar needs to give everyone a release date on this because i’m dying to know when the update comes out!!!

  • krstopherson

    if they’d just give us what we want we wouldn’t need cheats and in my opinion thats that reason behind people cheating to begin with. rockstar has been slacking on gtav online its entire existence.

  • Jack Harmis

    Hopefully the High Life update will come out this Tuesday since Rock* has yet to release an update for April. If Heists make it before June 20th, they will probably be released in May, or early June. Shame on Rockstar. These heists better be worth it, otherwise I will quit GTA online… Not that anyone else would care lol

  • KELVIN

    ITS ALL THE CHEATERS FALT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    • KELVIN die dummkopf

      “falt”?? The hell is that and by the way it is “IT’S” not “ITS”.

      STAY IN SCHOOL

      • heilzegrammarnazi

        Do you feel better about yourself, now?

  • obama_approved_it

    Someone who works for rockstar are the cheaters because I doubt that someone jus randomly figures out a way how to duplicate cars or even the money glitches

  • Anubis_360

    a good hacker can do anything all it takes is the right software on your PC to read coding and work out where the floors are or even the holes in the script where you can place your own code, you dont have to work for rockstar to hack the servers I know hackers who have blown aspects of gaming out of this world with hacks on MW3, MW2 and other top seller games. I do agree that the hackers have been the cause of the delayed DLC release but I also believe that Rockstar have done this on purpose to wait until the release of the XB1/PS4 and PC version because who would want to release a game such as GTA V and occur the same problems on the Next Gen Consoles…………..I think in a way the hackers have given Rockstar an excuse not to release and touch up the patches tbh

  • Rob ‘Richard Hammond’ Picken

    I’m just gonna call bs, it’s gotten to the point now where we’ve been waiting for ages and they’re still not doing anything remotely useful

  • andy

    Spring ends in May

    • bowden

      lol

  • Bigjoe275

    Watchdogs meet granftheftauto 5 trade in because I’ll be playing your game instead. Rockstar has deliberately trashed the money payouts.Then set in crap cards. Then blame the cheaters for exploiting the money glitch. Because it ruins the fun of the game. Wait that’s not all cheaters are the sole reason heist are not out yet. But here’s the problem rockstar cheated first with exploiting taking money away glitch. Then didn’t release the heist glitch then put in crap cards glitch. Seems to me rockstar are the biggest cheaters in grandtheftauto online. So I’ll be banning them for good and pick up watchdogs May 27th

  • Lee

    just give us the god damn heists already or atleast give us a realise date! rockstar have took the complete piss with this heists should of been on there too start with bit stange how they have heists for story mode but leave it out on online why would u do that…

  • anoynomous

    I am so close to trading gta 5 with watchdogs……its beyond a joke now

  • Darren Mc Carthy

    GTA online is dead. a lot of ppl i know and even myself have given up on it now. we need new content and i dont mean cars guns and such i mean actual new content

    • bowden

      (COUGH) hiest’s !

    • SonJake21

      Then why are you still reading about it?

      • Darren Mc Carthy

        because maybe i want to. maybe there is nothing else for me to do at this moment. or maybe i am actually interested in the heist update. i need to explain myself

  • Eli Silva

    OK thus is getting ridiculous honestly is the heist coming with 1.13 or not I mean come on. I don’t have extra money blaying around for watchdogs and if I did it would be for Batman or the deadpool game. I won’t lie I enjoy playing gta5 online it’d be more fun if more players actually can give me a real dog fight with the fighter jets then it’d be kewl as hell anyone interested????? I’m off Tuesday tag handle shadow21482 on PS3 COME one come all oh and I prefer every man for themselves just saying I don’t mind team but I prefer solo.

  • Patients_people

    It will launch the same time as GTAV on PS4, Xbox One and PC. Which will be in June. I wouldn’t be surprised if a new story for the campaign launches then too.

    A lot of you people are such spoilt cry babies.

    • Charlie

      Resource?

    • Butterboy

      I wouldn’t say we’re spoilt since they originally promised this in what? November? Then in February, then for early April, then late April, and now in June which probably won’t happen either

    • theboxer

      I heard that they will not be releasing it for PC.

    • DlCKBUTT

      This update was promised by rockstar since the begging, and no they’re gonna update the game before pc release, so that the game will be done for next gen.

  • Denis NiTo

    Let tell you something gta v the spring end on may… Why we have to wait ultil june…. I gonna be really honest i dont play like a week ago cuz waiting for something new ………….. Release allready the update 1.13

    • Daniel

      You rally need to work on your English.

      • Kotton

        You really need to work on your English to. Lol

        • Ymmit

          You really need to work on your English too.

        • rail

          Hhhhhh that was funny

        • Se7en

          Too funny. Good times, gentlemen..

        • Lol

          No too means too much to means as well, owned by a Brit!!!!

        • Hi

          Nope, too means in excess or also, so it would as Ymmit wrote.
          Use to before a verb infinitive or noun.
          Use too before an adjective or adverb.

        • DlCKBUTT

          He meant to say rally as a joke

  • bowden

    They should do a dlc every week just to keep the game active !

  • guillo

    They should release it as soon as possible; with Watchdogs coming out soon, most people who already own a PS4 won’t even bother to go back to GTA V.

  • theboxer

    Heists is to over rated were all expecting something good but give it a week after its out then it will be boring AGAIN im going with watchdogs

  • Rick Freezy

    You whiners couldn’t enjoy a game even if you were the best ones in it. Whatever happened to improvise, overcome,adapt. The only thing I would love changed is I wish it was a first person shooter and keep the third person driver. I get my arse kicked all the time, still keep playing cuz it’s fun and our crew just likes hanging out and doing whatever like parkour with crotch rockets. Suck it up people YKZA

  • Dan Potts

    Good go play watchdogs maybe without u lazy gamers rockstar can get to where it should be all thats gona happen to watchdogs is exactly the same thing as gta online another words with the hackers and general cheaters about….GOODLUCK!!!!

  • ian

    Too bad they are over hyped and ill be too busy playing watch dogs to enjoy the content that was supposed to come with my 60 dollar purchase of the game.

  • GTAHAXXER 19

    Heist havnt been released cuz rockstar knows if they release them us hackers can make the pay out 5 million to any amount we please and then split large amounts of money to players.I hack to and make cool mods.

    • juniormodz

      whats your gamertad

      • hey123

        playsation or xbox??

    • Butterboy

      No actually that’s not why. They said it so themselves. And it’s likely that people are going to hack and glitch far less (there will still be some) when it’s possible to make a few 100k in 20 minutes rather than 100k in an hour

  • hey123

    ATLEAST GIVE US A RELEASE DATE!!!!!!!! IAM TIRED OF GOING ON SOCIAL MEDIA AND ON THESE THIRD PARTY SITES JUST TO FIGURE OUT WHEN THE UPDATE IS DROPPING!!!! AND LETS BE HONEST HERE…… THE GLITCHES MADE THE GAME EVEN MORE FUN BECAUSE YOU CAN GET MORE OUT OF IT .. I’LL MISS DUPLICATING CARS AND TRADING THEM IN FOR MONEY …… I MEAN I HATE TO SAY THIS BUT GTA V IS GETTING PRETTY PLAIN .. IT GETS BORING FROM TIME TO TIME JUST DOING MISSIONS AND KILLING PEOPLE FOR NO REASON I WANT TO DO SOMETHING REALLY FUN ALREADY LIKE ROBBING A BANK AND HAVING A MANSION …… I HAVE WATCHED THE WATCHDOG TRAILER A LONG TIME AGO AND IT LOOKS LIKE IT IS WORTH THE BUY.. BUT BOTTOM LINE IF GTA V DOES NOT UPDATE SOON IT’S PROFIT WILL GO DOWN THE DRAIN.

    • hey123

      I MEAN I FEEL BAD FOR DUPLICATING CARS IN A WAY BEACAUSE NOW IT WILL GIVE GTA ANOTHER REASON TO TAKE A LONG TIME ON THE UPDATE :((((

      • supbrah

        NICE CAPS DUDE EVER TRIED WRITING WITHOUT THEM?!?!?!?!?

        You know like a civilised person would…

        • hey123

          Iam , but waiting 1,000 years for a update would drive you nuts! :)

  • Butterboy

    This is pissing me off, they said there would be heists in April. GIVE US A SET RELEASE DATE AND STICK TO IT. People saying that it’s because of glitchers then they should make it so that you don’t have to grind missions for hours and hours to make some money. I personally don’t get a lot of time to play this game so I did some glitch ing to get money and level up so I didn’t have to spend all the time doing missions instead of having fun. That’s just my 2 cents.

  • Kevin Vela

    Another shameless bump in the google search engine. Nothing to see here.

    • CDL

      Actually basically, there’s a lot of information here, where realistically before June 29th they will really need to work their work up basically.

      The terrible writing is worse than the fact that the article has no reason to exist.

  • Possible Allies

    Ha, yeah you know GTA is dying when this comment section is not being spammed by crew recruiters lol just saying. And yeah grinding out rooftop rumble sometimes makes my nose bleed wtf. New missions plzzzz oh heists that what it will be.

    • Remy Lebeau

      Also when people aren’t even spamming or mentioning heists anymore. A lot of people gave it in or traded gta already including myself. There is only so much you can do before boredom sets in.

      • Possible Allies

        Exactly, not to mention the damage freezing issues are doing to our gaming systems. Even better, I had to open my ps3 weeks ago and fix the gears on my disk drive. I never knew GTA caused that much strain on my drive, it ejected my disk and my ps3 wouldn’t take any disks lol until i fixed it. but Google it, I would have given up on GTA a long time ago but I still have alot friends that play online with me, being that I myself have a growing crew I feel trapped lol I just try to make the best of it and unbore the boredom haha watchdogs can’t wait.

        • Remy Lebeau

          At least you have a large group you guys can make stuff more interesting and fun. :)

  • Adam Glader

    So it will be another, ” hey guys, we are planing on it coming out on this date, but really its going to come out in a year.” Don’t get me wrong, GTA 5 is a pretty good game, but the consistent delay in the updates and add on’s are getting annoying.

  • Lol

    They have got a good game, but they are to lazy to improve it.
    It was excellent last year but now with watchdogs round the corner and other next gen games gta 5 is getting dated.
    Basically if any weirdo read the ramblings of moi more dlc content, not just a gun here and a car there, like episodic dlcs. I know they said no to them but really it would be worth having las venturas or San fearo or something just as long as there are more fun missions.

    • Danny MacFarlane

      Gta v is coming out on next gen, June-July I don’t think they want to be dated.

  • Lol

    I really need to stop rambling on and get out of my parents attic

  • Lol

    Jk I they live in my attic… Honest make me stop pls.

  • Lol

    I live at 1 Charlotte street Ayr Scotland
    My real name is Kasim Naczk

  • Lol

    Shoot me pls

  • Lol

    GTA Online sucks me p3n1s

    Saved by the bell my wife is calling

  • XxTVirusxX

    They realize they are making every single thing in the game way to overpriced, like 25,000 for a camo, that’s about 30+ minutes of doing straight up missions. More for lower levelled players. If rockstar released a way to make sufficient funds to keep up with what we have to pay then less people will resort to glitches for making money, simple as that

    • Jesus

      2 runs of rooftop rumble gets you 36k atleast and that takes 10 min so idk what the hell you are saying

  • GTAFAN669

    If they brought the heists in earlier people maybe would glitch so much. Saving up for a tank doing jobs and that is an absolute slog.

  • Corey

    The fact is this.

    You CANNOT progress in the online mode unless you have an insane amount of time to dedicate. You cant casually play the game and have fun. Thats why i stopped playing months ago. To hard to level up to hard to make any money. I get that they wanted to keep the game fair but the only people that were able to progress were the people cheating. Online was a huge let down for me.

    • Timothy

      It’s not that hard to level up without glitching. Do Rooftop Rumble multiple times it gives you alot of RP and money. It gives you 3800 RP and $18,750 on hard. There for it’s not that hard to level up. And yes there are alot of cheaters but, there are a few high leveled players that actually worked their way up by doing missions.

      • sweg

        But rooftop rumble is available at level 75(?) I’ve been playing for months and im only at 50. I have only a coquette, jester, turismo, and comet. ALLLLL from cheating cars in to sell. Im not one to do glitches, but i was so bored and desperate.

        • DarkKokiri

          You can download the “all coveted” playlist that has 16 coveted missions which gets you the same amount of cash as rooftop rumble.

        • shushakali

          750 GTA$ less….

        • GTAisProbablyHD

          $750 less and half the amount of RP

        • Matt

          Keep doing missions, Missions are the fastest way to rank up.

      • greg

        I’m almost level 320 legit

      • greg

        Been playing since day one. Spent hours and paid off

    • Ryan J Ashby

      I’m rank 94 it’s easy to rank up & earn money just takes dedication, i never cheated i earned & gained the proper way being a good sport like it should be done, do things like Rooftop Rumble, Bounties, Selling Cars, Robbing Armored Trucks & Robbing Stores etc.. that earns you money & RP think like a criminal when playing GTA not like a law abiding citizen & i don’t mean cheat i just mean how you play there’s different types of players in GTA Online.

    • KingGuwop1017

      Uhhh if u have 5-10 mins all u have to do is pick a high RP mission to do a few times and u will b set

    • kronickyle

      i work almost 50 hours a week and im almost level 80 just need to play the right missions and kill lots of randoms :p

  • Bob

    Quit playing GTA V awhile ago now. Forgot I even had it. Leveling up is tedious as all hell, can’t wait for proper, big pay-offs from the heists.

  • anonymous

    The only reason they haven’t released heists yet is due to them waiting till the release of Watchdogs. I guarantee that maybe a week before or a day or two after the release of Watchdogs they’ll give us heists just to keep the Competition between games going strong.

    • Danny MacFarlane

      I highly doubt it’s due to the release of watchdogs as there big trick up there sleeves is bringing it out on next gen consoles, rumoured to be around June-July.

  • Danny MacFarlane

    The reason they haven’t released anything is more to the glitches as they are spending time and man power fixing all the hackers and glitches, the gamers are doing it to themselves. But saying that people are getting bored and start looking for new things to do even cheating, vicious circle.

  • KingGuwop1017

    I bet the hackers and glitchers are the ones wondering why the update isnt out yet

  • http://white-rabbit-berlin.com/ GTA 5 Cheats Xbox 360

    The heist will be released as soon as all gamers can learn to behave

  • Damian

    Ill have Xbox one before heists, gg rock star gg

  • iRyAn

    Rofl at these people going on about rooftop mission, who wants to play a game redoing the same mission over and over.. rockstar failed at online, fair enough its good to just drive about and mess around for an hour but really this is the best rockstar could do for their ‘last gta game’

  • Ethan Rae

    If they don’t have it by June 20 I’m gonna go to rock* and force them to

  • GTAisProbablyHD

    who knows.

    they did say GTAV would release spring 2013. and was pushed back 4 months longer. so same thing might happen here to. they said spring to release the game and they didnt. so who knows. it might happen again with their dlc
