GTA V Heists release deadline

Are you starting to get a little anxious on the seemingly never-ending wait for a GTA V Heists release date? Rockstar has promised that they will bring this GTA Online DLC to everyone in Spring, but with Spring ending officially in June, will Rockstar be able to deliver on their self-imposed deadline?

You won’t need us to remind you that GTA V Heists is the single most requested feature of the entire game since launch last year. Rockstar has kept everyone waiting ever since with smaller pieces of DLC, but as we move into May Rockstar will have to crank up their work load to ensure that they are able to get Heists out by June.

For those that are not aware, Spring 2014 officially ends on June 20, 2014. That means that Rockstar essentially has from now until that date to deliver the GTA V 1.13 update, the High Life update and the Heists content – all within Spring.

Having said that, it’s logical to assume that the High Life update may come with GTA V 1.13 combined, and then GTA V 1.14 will be the update which arrives with Heists, so they definitely have time to do it. As we told you in a previous report though, many gamers were expecting to see GTA V 1.13 and the High Life update last week, but Rockstar has kept completely silent.

You have told us that one of the reasons for this, is due to the persistent glitchers and cheaters in the game, with Rockstar having to spend extra time to fix the glitches before releasing another official update.

Obviously, this is just an assumption though. Rockstar could be having a problem with aspects of the High Life update which require further testing – owning multiple garages and preventing money glitches using duplicate cars for example.

Back to Heists though, are you confident that Rockstar can meet the theoretical deadline of June 20 when Spring 2014 ends? Imagine a scenario if they cannot meet this timeframe though – how would you feel about it?

Rofl at these people going on about rooftop mission, who wants to play a game redoing the same mission over and over.. rockstar failed at online, fair enough its good to just drive about and mess around for an hour but really this is the best rockstar could do for their ‘last gta game’

I bet the hackers and glitchers are the ones wondering why the update isnt out yet

The reason they haven’t released anything is more to the glitches as they are spending time and man power fixing all the hackers and glitches, the gamers are doing it to themselves. But saying that people are getting bored and start looking for new things to do even cheating, vicious circle.

The only reason they haven’t released heists yet is due to them waiting till the release of Watchdogs. I guarantee that maybe a week before or a day or two after the release of Watchdogs they’ll give us heists just to keep the Competition between games going strong.

Quit playing GTA V awhile ago now. Forgot I even had it. Leveling up is tedious as all hell, can’t wait for proper, big pay-offs from the heists.

The fact is this.

You CANNOT progress in the online mode unless you have an insane amount of time to dedicate. You cant casually play the game and have fun. Thats why i stopped playing months ago. To hard to level up to hard to make any money. I get that they wanted to keep the game fair but the only people that were able to progress were the people cheating. Online was a huge let down for me.

If they brought the heists in earlier people maybe would glitch so much. Saving up for a tank doing jobs and that is an absolute slog.

They realize they are making every single thing in the game way to overpriced, like 25,000 for a camo, that’s about 30+ minutes of doing straight up missions. More for lower levelled players. If rockstar released a way to make sufficient funds to keep up with what we have to pay then less people will resort to glitches for making money, simple as that

They have got a good game, but they are to lazy to improve it.
It was excellent last year but now with watchdogs round the corner and other next gen games gta 5 is getting dated.
Basically if any weirdo read the ramblings of moi more dlc content, not just a gun here and a car there, like episodic dlcs. I know they said no to them but really it would be worth having las venturas or San fearo or something just as long as there are more fun missions.

So it will be another, ” hey guys, we are planing on it coming out on this date, but really its going to come out in a year.” Don’t get me wrong, GTA 5 is a pretty good game, but the consistent delay in the updates and add on’s are getting annoying.

Ha, yeah you know GTA is dying when this comment section is not being spammed by crew recruiters lol just saying. And yeah grinding out rooftop rumble sometimes makes my nose bleed wtf. New missions plzzzz oh heists that what it will be.

This is pissing me off, they said there would be heists in April. GIVE US A SET RELEASE DATE AND STICK TO IT. People saying that it’s because of glitchers then they should make it so that you don’t have to grind missions for hours and hours to make some money. I personally don’t get a lot of time to play this game so I did some glitch ing to get money and level up so I didn’t have to spend all the time doing missions instead of having fun. That’s just my 2 cents.

ATLEAST GIVE US A RELEASE DATE!!!!!!!! IAM TIRED OF GOING ON SOCIAL MEDIA AND ON THESE THIRD PARTY SITES JUST TO FIGURE OUT WHEN THE UPDATE IS DROPPING!!!! AND LETS BE HONEST HERE…… THE GLITCHES MADE THE GAME EVEN MORE FUN BECAUSE YOU CAN GET MORE OUT OF IT .. I’LL MISS DUPLICATING CARS AND TRADING THEM IN FOR MONEY …… I MEAN I HATE TO SAY THIS BUT GTA V IS GETTING PRETTY PLAIN .. IT GETS BORING FROM TIME TO TIME JUST DOING MISSIONS AND KILLING PEOPLE FOR NO REASON I WANT TO DO SOMETHING REALLY FUN ALREADY… Read more »

You whiners couldn’t enjoy a game even if you were the best ones in it. Whatever happened to improvise, overcome,adapt. The only thing I would love changed is I wish it was a first person shooter and keep the third person driver. I get my arse kicked all the time, still keep playing cuz it’s fun and our crew just likes hanging out and doing whatever like parkour with crotch rockets. Suck it up people YKZA

Heists is to over rated were all expecting something good but give it a week after its out then it will be boring AGAIN im going with watchdogs

guillo

They should release it as soon as possible; with Watchdogs coming out soon, most people who already own a PS4 won’t even bother to go back to GTA V.

They should do a dlc every week just to keep the game active !

Patients_people

It will launch the same time as GTAV on PS4, Xbox One and PC. Which will be in June. I wouldn’t be surprised if a new story for the campaign launches then too.

A lot of you people are such spoilt cry babies.

OK thus is getting ridiculous honestly is the heist coming with 1.13 or not I mean come on. I don’t have extra money blaying around for watchdogs and if I did it would be for Batman or the deadpool game. I won’t lie I enjoy playing gta5 online it’d be more fun if more players actually can give me a real dog fight with the fighter jets then it’d be kewl as hell anyone interested?????

Watchdogs meet granftheftauto 5 trade in because I’ll be playing your game instead. Rockstar has deliberately trashed the money payouts.Then set in crap cards. Then blame the cheaters for exploiting the money glitch. Because it ruins the fun of the game. Wait that’s not all cheaters are the sole reason heist are not out yet. But here’s the problem rockstar cheated first with exploiting taking money away glitch. Then didn’t release the heist glitch then put in crap cards glitch. Seems to me rockstar are the biggest cheaters in grandtheftauto online. So I’ll be banning them for good and pick… Read more »

a good hacker can do anything all it takes is the right software on your PC to read coding and work out where the floors are or even the holes in the script where you can place your own code, you dont have to work for rockstar to hack the servers I know hackers who have blown aspects of gaming out of this world with hacks on MW3, MW2 and other top seller games. I do agree that the hackers have been the cause of the delayed DLC release but I also believe that Rockstar have done this on purpose… Read more »

Someone who works for rockstar are the cheaters because I doubt that someone jus randomly figures out a way how to duplicate cars or even the money glitches

Hopefully the High Life update will come out this Tuesday since Rock* has yet to release an update for April. If Heists make it before June 20th, they will probably be released in May, or early June. Shame on Rockstar. These heists better be worth it, otherwise I will quit GTA online… Not that anyone else would care lol

if they’d just give us what we want we wouldn’t need cheats and in my opinion thats that reason behind people cheating to begin with. rockstar has been slacking on gtav online its entire existence.

Just saying Rockstar needs to give everyone a release date on this because i’m dying to know when the update comes out!!!

I’d be more mad at cheaters to be be honest. It’s pretty likely that constant exploit fixes are pushing back actual updates.

I bet its the glitching that is preventing them from release the update caused by the cheaters.
