GTA V 1.16 anxiety at 42 days since update

By Updated on

The Grand Theft Auto V 1.16 update was expected by the majority earlier this week, but as the normal release time passed it became evident Rockstar weren’t playing ball. It would now be a shocking outcome for this Tuesday to arrive without the GTA V 1.16 update, and of course some new online content including fresh weapons, cars, and more.

If no new content arrives next week on the traditional download day, then it would be 42 days since the 1.15 update and Independence Day DLC. This fact alone has some people believing it’s almost impossible for Rockstar not to release an update, or they’ll be certain to receive a backlash from players wanting either new downloadable content or bug fixes.

One gamer had this to say after last Tuesday, “I don’t see the release notes on Rockstar’s Newswire way past the expected time, and we’re left with a plague of invulnerability glitchers everywhere that ruin the experience for most of us”. Another added, “enough is enough Rockstar, please release the GTA 5 1.16 update on August 12th, or I will be leaving playing online until these game-breaking glitches are fixed”.

Do you feel that the GTA V 1.16 update has to release next week and if it doesn’t, is it a big deal to you? There’s hope that a longer wait between GTA Online updates might mean something big is coming, now whether that’s Heists or some major DLC is yet to be seen. If this happens, then you can be sure it will restore some gamers faith in Rockstar to deliver.

    They will release the update when its ready. Little tiny children find that extremely difficult to understand.

    • ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)

      It actually is ready to be released but they just wont do it yet, it’s on the xbox market place and playstation store

      • ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)

        is there a bridge near by, *sniff sniff* i smell a troll

      • TadpoleBuckshot

        I say wha huh?

    • Arcendus

      “Little tiny children”? Everyone is well aware that the easiest and most desperate insult is… that one. Learn to internet better.

      • TadpoleBuckshot

        Let me know when your mommy gets home. I need to speak with her about her parenting. (Or lack thereof)

      • TadpoleBuckshot

        I forgot about idiots like yourself.

  • Fraser Baron-Moorhouse

    I admit I use the glitches, but its only because there is no other way to make good money as the jobs give hardly anything compared to the prices of most things on sale and there is no other high yielding alternatives so until heists are released this is what I will continue to do. I don’t find money glitches game breaking the fact that things are overly expensive in the game is gamebreaking as with out glitches people would not be able to access and use them and the fact that they expect us to pay real money for “sharkcards” when we can just glitch and get money because we payed for the game and we should be able to play the game to its maximum without having to give more and more money to r* like some rubbish pay-to-win game, which I believe GTA should never be as it is a brilliant franchise and they want to throw that all away with microtransations!

      HaH you are funny, but you also realize it is people with the same mental state as you that Rockstar has NOT released new content? A casino is coming at some point.. It was sceheduled for a June Release, but with these “game breaking money glitches” what’s the point? That said… I do not find it hard to make money in GTA online and i have 12 Million Dollars.. And NO it was not by farming coveted or rooftop rumble or buying shark cards or resorting to your “ban worthy” glitching.
      I got my money by going on the missions offered to me, regardless of payout, co-op and survivals… = Money.
      In Addition to that.. You can make money in Freeroam by doing gang attacks (which net around 2500$ + whatever weapons and ammo you get)
      Armored Truck Robberies that will give you anywhere between 2,000$-14,000$
      Air Crate Drops- Which contain RP weapons armor or cash.
      Robbing a Store 1000$-7000$
      Taking a vehicle to Simeon- 4000$-14,000$ (depending on vehicle, color and amount of players in game)
      And of course if you didn’t know… You can sale any random stollen vehicle to the Los Santos customs shop every 24 hours.. Which is about every 30 minutes in real time. The Gallivanter Baller, the Ubermachet Oracle and the Ocelot all sale in for over 8000$, if you can’t get one for over 8000$ the Dubsta is your next best choice which grants 7000$…

      Oh but I forgot, it’s “too hard” to make money in GTA online, let’s face F*ing facts here, they did not want you buying a military tank 12 minutes after you started playing the game. You have to work for these things.. But CLEARLY I have just shown everyone proof that Rockstar does not center the game around GTA shark cards.. Otherwise the wouldn’t give you 2000$ for good behavior and give you all these money making opportunities.

      • Chicken

        I am level 95, have a steady bank account of about $200,000, have the cars, house and apartment I want… I am pretty comfortable… I mean the ONLY purchase at this point I would make is a mansion or better house in the future. You don’t need MILLIONS of dollars.

        • Anon1

          Oh but I do… They release timed exclusive DLC content that’s only available for a limited amount of time (useually holiday themed) I’d rather have the millions to spend immedately.. Then miss out on this content, now THIS I believe IS done only to encourage players to buy the shark cards but.. If your like me and are sitting on Millions preparing for the next limited time DLC buying that 750,000$ Monster Truck, the new clothing, masks, weapons and whatever vehicles they add isn’t much of an issue.
          Plus.. After I buy all that I can start making my money back up to prepare for the next update :)

    • nicksal

      I actually believe that the reason Rockstar implemented shark cards in the first place is just so we won’t have to pay for dlcs… Which I think is pretty cool. Imagine like COD and batman arkham.. Etc… Every content that’s released you have to pay for… So I think we should support Rockstar with the shark cards:/

      • Bigjoe275

        Wrong you really believe rockstar will support that. Did they say that if we support shark cards they’ll give us ALL dlc SP & MP. No they didn’t say that or will do any of that stuff. Rockstar wants too maximize profits buy having you pay for shark cards and dlc. Your part of the problem just like the hackers. We need a solution balance out the money payouts too justify the over priced content in the game. But rockstar won’t do this so hackers keep on hacking.

        • Anon1

          You really are this dumb aren’t you? Story DLC SHOULD be paid content, enough said but- Rockstar did NOT have to also give you the vehicles and weapons for free in single player that you buy in Online Mode..

          In fact here tell you what, go buy Defiance at full retail price (65$ when it was new..) then buy it’s season pass.. (50$) THEN be extremely disappointed when all of the cool stuff you expected from the pass.. Is only available by purchasing bits (microtransactions) want to tint your charge blade lime green? Well you can for 10$.. Something that should had very damn well been part of the season pass. And it sickens me now how today’s games seasons passes do not even cover the entirety of the games content like a SP was built for?? Yeah- I knew our world was doomed though when people accepted DLC as a “good thing” when mostly it was just stuff already on the disc theyed sale to you later.. It’s like buying a Batman action figure.. But they charge you 15$ for the outfit and another 20$ for his gadgets.
          Yeah sure that sounds acceptable

          Oh and one more thing, you like driving that Roosevelt, Vestra, Liberator or Zonterrano (or however that cars name is spelled) in single player?
          Good me too, and unlike Defiance.. I’m glad I’m not paying 5$,10$,or 15$ for ONE Vehicle.
          Cause ya know keep in mind.. Rockstar could be doing that.

    • joe

      the way is getting good at the game. You should try it.

  • Jess

    I have over a million, a level 120 quit your b****ing about needing money and get grinding. The game is meant long term not instant gratification. Thats what keeps you coming back.

    • Edward Daniels

      After doing every mission possible. Its extremely frustrating when the pay out get less and less. So u end up wasting more resources than actually gain. Everything is expensive in GTA if u didn’t know. The only why to really get a consistent amount is to repeat survivor missions. Which is a waste of personal resources. Plus u have to worry about other ppl when back in the main lobby killing u constantly resulting in lost of ammo at a rapid rate. So these ppl are not crying they have a legitimate argument.

    • Cisco Reyes

      Hell yea….. i grind several mastered missions in 5 minutes or less daily…..and solo….. Chopper tail on hard with a merry weather or buzzard chopper from the start – $15,000 every 6:30…… trash talk with a buzzard – $15,000 every 4 minutes….5 at most….. in an hour and a half on trashtalk… i make $250,000……add in a solo processed survival….10 minutes and $30,000…..all you gotta do is GRIND

      • Cisco Reyes

        Typo… chopper tail on hard is $17,250

  • educate

    im lame and bought a shark card. im not trying to get banned and have a job and therefore can afford to pay the small sum of money for some fun online. I also did it online with game stop and it was 50% off for ps3 players c: however, i didnt need to buy one. i just really wanted the liberator on the last update and was short 200 grand and just figured wtf im gonna buy it now

    • Alex

      Wow you could make that in an hour on missions

      • educate

        im lazy

  • PapaSmurf5112

    August 26 update…just in time for labor day…

    • dodo boy

      That would be more of a wait, August 12, we have been expecting it for too long. Though it would make sense.

  • Vahit

    Im Level 102 Now I have Anything 2 Million $ The 2 Most Expensive Apartments !
    And its Not Making Fun Anymore GTA Need new Content !
    And all this Glitches Must be Fixed The Game Crash much if you Start a Mission or Leave a Mission Game Freeze or If you have 4 players In room you want to start it says Wait Player Join !
    But all Players are joined You cant start if you wait till 0.00 game try to start but it doesnt start you had to Shut down your console and start to play again And if you do this You get Bad Points if you have much Bad points you get bann to cheater lobby !

  • Wesley

    I am a level 139 I’m the game it is a legit level I have had the game science Christmas it’s the only game I play I have been doing some research on the game with gaming codes what I found of rockstar the update will be coming out this Tuesday .this is the longest time it’s took rockstar to update the game we are all looking forward to the game to see what was real about it what every one said and what was fake about it if you have any questions I am on xbox live add me and send me a message and I will get back to you as soon as I see the message my gamertag is wesleycoulding

  • Mark Estrada

    I play gta and people i cant kill them if they dont put the the update then i wont play gta anymore plus im level 123 if they dont fix it then gta will be full of hackers

    • Bobby

      Wait till they move to PC

  • therooftopking

    praise rooftop!

  • Kam

    An update is need very badly. Im at the point to where I dont care if it’s a major update with new update. Main thing is, we need these mod menus patched, and that God Mode glitch patched too because people are killing others like nothing

    • Ghost240

      I’m stuck in bad sports so it’s ten times worse than whats going on in the normal lobbies

  • Dylan

    I am level 136 with 10 million dollars in my pocket, 2 most expensive apartments, my ten car garages are filled with the best possible cars available and I have nearly every single pegasus vehicle. But if no update comes what’s the point of having all that money and nothing fun to spend it on. Please Rockstar we need a new update. I personally think the 1.16 update will be on Tuesday 12th because the longest any previous update has taken from the next is 42 days exactly and it was a big update so let’s just wait and see I guess…

    • ReBjorn13

      That’s what you get for cheating how can you have all that plus 10 mil and only be rank 136 in other words how can you even have 10 mil legit plus all that?

      • Blasphemous Titan

        …..shark cards?

        • Reaper

          Grinding Rooftop Rumble pre-nerfing and after…even though its hella harder now…once you know the patterns and if u got the right crew – you can finish it in 5 mins on hard. You can make 100-200k an hr grinding it solo if u know what you are doing….150-200 if u got help.

        • Reaper

          Typo – 100-120k solo on average…even spamming the garage with rockets to be quick there are still stragglers u have to take out the old fashioned way with a CQC Bullet….and that approach fails at times given how OP the enemies are now and extends out time along with the chase.

          Basically meant to say that given how long RR has been available – how long before it got nerfed and if you got the right strategy and crew – its more than possible Dylan’s 10Mil and possessions are legitly acquired….just alot of patience needed in grinding if you dont mind the repetition and teduim!
          Im grinding it as much as I can and not looking forward to any patch – because next thing u know they’ll nerf it more by letting enemies 1 hit kill you through thick cover you might be behind!

          People glitch and grind because the payouts for missions are ridiculously low – esp for long difficult ones – and price for things is ridiculously high….which I understand is similar to the real world…but I go into GTA online to have fun and escape crap reality like that!

          In any event – Rockstar made a great game that made them over 1B….them making it hard to acquire $ in game so ppl start buying shark cards so R* can make more real world $ – is rather shameful on their part. Now if the shark cards had better value…like $1 =1M in game cash – youd have less glitchers and grinder probably.

    • niggamyrus

      Its hilarious knowing that rockstar might ban you cuz you said that

    • Guest

      my garage would be filled with the best possible cars available if i could just get my engines,,transmissions, and turbo,unlocked.

  • shack

    I have stopped playing this month’s ago. In my personal opinion rockstar dissappointed me with promising heist. So haven’t played it still get regular Google updates keeping updated on latest gtav updates letting me know heist are not here yet.

  • lukr

    I have a life and play other better games.

    • macgeek

      Well… I’ll have to agree with you on that one!

  • ciscoNoDrink

    GTA Online is crap. They need to release non online mission DLC.

  • YouTube

    I’m a level 153 and I have $17million so who cares don’t bother Dylan. The only thing we need is The Update 1.16 and I’m still waiting for it. On Tuesday maybe? ;)

    • Cisco Reyes

      Ive found several ways to turn the tables on them…..look up how to actually do the glitch yourself to get a better understanding of it, there are several things they cant do or it will stop their godmode….forcing them to do these things will override the glitch…. i look for these little fucks for fun……lol

    Considering that 1.14 “I’m not a hipster” is pure crap and that 1.15 could only care to US players (because let me tell you a little secret, nobody but US cares about US independence) it’s been ages without any real update.

    • Cisco Reyes

      Now this i agree with….

    • Disgruntled Consumer

      Even I (as a US citizen) could care less about the Independence Day celebrations/update. But the Vintage Pistol and Musket are sexy, so I’ll give them that. Still waiting for an actual patch, though.

    It won’t be released this week, in case nobody remembers, they post info when a new DLC is coming, they haven’t posted anything, IT WON’T COME THIS WEEK EITHER

    • Dro

      They don’t always.

      Wrong….rockstar have never posted info on patches until after their release….youtubers or websites use leaked info or code from hacking to attemp to predict patches…an sometimes they are right…but most of the time they are wrong…..

        I remember quite well seing the Zentorno, the Massacro and the Thrust before they were released

    I love how GTA v, a game about robbing still haven’t got heists for online players, but battlefield 4, a FPS WAR game is getting heists before GTA v… Go hardline
