GTA V Heists release with Watch Dogs

By Alan Ng - May 8, 2014

Now that we finally know the confirmed GTA V High Life update release date, most GTA V players have noticed that Rockstar still hasn’t mentioned Heists, the content that is thought to be the last on the way for the planned GTA V Spring updates.

The High Life will definitely be happening on May 13, with Rockstar unusually breaking tradition and revealing an exact release date for one of their planned updates.

After that though, all eyes are once again on Heists and whether Rockstar can deliver their worst kept secret before the June 20 and the end of Spring 2014 deadline.

We are continuing to see lots of speculation on the GTA V Heists release date, but what we haven’t talked about is the interesting possibility of Rockstar perhaps delaying Heists until the global release date of Watch Dogs.

Remember that Watch Dogs is due out on May 27 and it could be an ideal and rather genius way for Rockstar to keep everyone fixed to GTA V Online servers on the day that Watch Dogs launches.

Will Heists launch on the same day as Watch Dogs?

Will Heists launch on the same day as Watch Dogs?

Ubisoft’s game is set to be one of the biggest releases of 2014 and we’ve heard feedback from many of you who are more than happy to leave GTA V once Watch Dogs arrives.

Rockstar may be sensing that many of their players will also leave GTA V, so what better way than to lure them back with the temptation of Heists?

This very possibility has been discussed in the video from CVG below, which you can listen to from the 7.15 point onwards. If Heists does come out on May 27 it would be exactly two weeks between the High Life update, so we wouldn’t rule it out completely from happening.

Obviously this isn’t a confirmation but it is very interesting to think about if you wonder why Heists still hasn’t released, plus why Rockstar remained silent when talking about the High Life update a few days ago.

Are you starting to believe that this possibility could become reality? Business is business after all and Rockstar will want to retain interest in GTA V online numbers as much as possible – players leaving for Watch Dogs wouldn’t be good for them, especially with more GTA V DLC on the way during the year.
