GTA V Heists demand prompts Rockstar statement

We are now approaching February 2014, but unfortunately there is still no sign of the highly anticipated GTA V Heists release date. Meanwhile, Rockstar has released more custom Jobs for GTA Online, but it seems that players are only interested in talking about Heists and Rockstar may be starting to grow tired of the demands.

As most of you are aware, Heists was originally planned as add-on free GTA V DLC ‘shortly after launch’. This timeframe appeared to be a nightmare for many gamers though, as Rockstar instead decided to focus on improving other areas of the game.

Heists is still nowhere to be seen though and this week, we have seen Rockstar update the game with more online Jobs instead. What took our attention though, is a statement in the comment section of their latest update.

We’ve included that statement below in its entirety, have a look:

Are Rockstar getting frustrated with constant Heists requests?
Are Rockstar getting frustrated with constant Heists requests?

As you can see, Rockstar are getting tired of all the demands for Heists and have been forced to warn players to ‘stay on topic’ at all times in their comment section. Basically put, they only want players to talk about the new Jobs for the moment and not about new unreleased content such as Heists.

Is this an indication that Rockstar are now starting to get angry with the persistent requests? After all, put yourself in the developers shoes for a moment and imagine working on add-on content, only for fans to dismiss it each time as they look for Heists to release instead.

Is the community in danger of not being appreciative of the work that Rockstar puts into GTA Online perhaps? That statement above has started an interesting debate we feel so let us know what you stand on this.

Do you understand Rockstar for growing tired of the constant talk of Heists?
