GTA V 1.15 Heists update, next-gen fears

By Updated on

We were the first site to report the GTA V 1.14 update going live with the ‘I’m not a Hipster’ patch. However, as many of you have noticed since installing, there is still no word on the missing GTA V Heists release with Rockstar saying nothing on the matter.

Usually at the end of each update post on Rockstar’s website, the developer will make some comment on how they are still working on Heists and for gamers to remain patient as they work to deliver the highly anticipated content.

With the GTA V 1.14 update notes though, Rockstar has not mentioned Heists at all. If you have been following the release closely since announcement, you’ll know that Heists was initially promised for Spring, along with the Capture Creator and other updates that we have already had.

With Spring officially ending on June 20, 2014 though, it looks like Rockstar will not be able to meet their own deadline, unfortunately. As you can imagine, many players are not happy about this and now we have seen increased fears from those who think that Rockstar may save Heists for PS4, Xbox One and PC only.

Obviously, it would be a nightmare scenario for PS3 and Xbox 360 users if this happens, but we doubt that Rockstar would be that cruel. Heists has been the single most requested feature for GTA V Online, remembering that we haven’t even had a piece of official story DLC yet.

Having said that, we still think it’s important to remember that this is free content that Rockstar is offering to keep everyone busy in the meantime. Rockstar are well within their rights to charge a fee for their DLC drops and from the looks of it, the Hipster update is massive which everybody is getting for free.

Will Rockstar now deliver Heists with the GTA V 1.15 patch or are you starting to believe that they may make it an exclusive feature for next-gen versions only?

If they do this, how would you feel after waiting so long?

    If heists were to be next gen (and PC) exclusive, that would be so low of R* it would extremely affect their reputation in gaming industry and get them from top to somewhere middle in the list.
    And one thing we all know, reputation for R* is important

    With my knowledge of technology I can say one thing for certain. I can see why Heists are not being released. It is not that it’s hard to develop. The point is that just singe players heists are such a complicated set of chain codes that I am surprised how old generation consoles are still not burning, while playing heists.

    For multiplayer it is waaaay more complex.

    So my point is, I would be disappointed but not surprised if Heists will not make it to old gen.
    Understandable, but still disappointing

    They should never set a certain time if they aren’t sure if they’ll have it by then, we’re already mad, but it makes us more mad that they didn’t keep there promise. I can wait though, lol, its just annoying
