GTA V Patriot Day DLC for 9/11

By Alan Ng - Sep 9, 2014

With no new GTA V DLC on the horizon yet again, players are starting to wonder when Rockstar may release the next GTA V update with 1.17. This week, we have some interesting whispers from the community to share with you, including calls for Rockstar to offer some one-off special GTA V Patriot Day DLC for 9/11 2014.

This is the Remembrance Day for the 9/11 attacks of course and a day when the US unites in remembering both the victims and the members of the health services who bravely risked their lives to help others.

We have seen increased calls for Rockstar to somehow offer their own tribute to 9/11, especially given that Rockstar has been known to offer similar GTA V updates to commemorate important calendar dates.

While we think this is a great idea, there’s one problem in that Rockstar always provide new GTA V updates on a Tuesday, but 9/11 falls on a Thursday this year. Will Rockstar break their own tradition with some surprise DLC in light of Patriot Day this year?

One way of holding a tribute could be for Rockstar to deliver free police and firemen uniforms to each and every player, so that players can unite online in a fitting way.

Of course, there’s no guarantee that it is going to happen this Thursday, but most GTA Online players will agree that another update is due. With the GTA V Story DLC in no man’s land still and GTA V Heists still being worked on, some Patriot Day DLC would be nice.

Would you like to see this on Thursday and last over the weekend or not?

    Nobody gives a f***. This is the second update in a row with nothing to add except QUOTE “Military Vehicles and clothes.” F*** you Rockstar, the only thing ANYONE wants is HEISTS and ZOMBIES. How are they THIS f***ing dense? NO one cares about this piddly little “Have a new T Shirt” bulls***. Put Out Some God Damned DLC.

      Man, the first DLC for GTA IV came out EIGHTEEN MONTHS after the game itself came out. Be patient. I’d rather wait longer and have the DLC be perfect than have them rush it and put out something underwhelming that doesn’t work properly.

      Are you seriously saying you can’t find ANYTHING in GTA V or the online component to occupy you until the heist DLC comes out?

    It’s a good idea but there will be people who will throw planes into buildings trying to be funny I’m sorry but I dnt think its worth doing coz then 12 yr old kids will scream n cry about it n use words tht don’t know it’s pointless.

    I think I would be a great idea im not american but it is something they should do and who ever think rockstar are money grabbing turds, to be fair they dont charge you for DLCs so what you talking about

  • me

    piss on 9/11

  • assasad

    another bla-bla-bla speculation to get attention for the site…

  • Airsoftelite

    Cockstar don’t care what we want there just like EA. A bunch of money grabbing turds.

  • Jake

    “Heists are still being worked on” Oh Rockstar, that’s a good one. We all know that you don’t want to release heists because you know you will lose money from Sharkcard purchases.

    This will NOT happen, I’m sure of it…This is a rememberance day of a very recent attack, still fresh in the memory of many, many people! To do something like this would be considered ‘too political’ a move, unlike celebrating ‘Independance day’ for example, something that, really is just remembered now as a national American holiday…Although Game developers in general, including Rockstar to an extent may use satire or allegory within their games and stories, being associated directly with 9/11, regardless of any good intentions behind it, would be considered to ‘tacky’ and considering the themes of GTA in particular would be considered just too disrespectful to relate a game that heavily features both small and large scale crime including the ability to fly planes into buildings (for those who are so inclined) I think Rockstar will definitely avoid this, now, I could of course be wrong…But, I’m really, REALLY sure they won’t do this.
