Rockstar has only just launched a new GTA V update with 1.16, but it looks like we already have solid details on the forthcoming GTA V 1.17 update. Just like 1.16, Rockstar may be planning to make gamers wait several months for the next update, so brace yourselves.
While many of you desperately try and raise enough cash to buy the new planes and jets within the Flight School Update, we can now see why the Mammoth Hydra jet wasn’t included with 1.16 as we expected.
To recap, details of the Flight School update were leaked prior to release and inside the source code were details namedropping the GTA V Hydra jet for $1.7 million, alongside with the Besra jet and Mil-jet which are now officially available.
We thought that Rockstar could be saving the Hydra for a separate update and now this looks to have been confirmed. New evidence contained in the video below suggests that Rockstar are now planning to bring GTA V Army DLC to the game with 1.17.
Specifically, details involving 9 new face paints have also been revealed in the source code which will be available to buy once the new update is available – the same process will include the Hydra finally up for sale as well.
The biggest problem that we can see, is that you may have to wait at least three months to see the next GTA V update. The rumored GTA V 1.17 release date is November 11, 2014 which just so happens to fall on Veteran’s Day 2014.
You should know by now that Rockstar are big fans of celebrating national holidays in the US after dropping content for Independence Day and most recently for National Aviation Day with the Flight School content.
Can you hold on for that long for the next update, if the rumors are true? There’s still no signs of GTA V Heists either – how does that make you feel? Let us know if you are up for some Army DLC next or if you are only going to play again once Heists is released.
