GTA V Heists status update after stimulus thrill

What is your GTA V status at the moment? Rockstar would have witnessed a massive surge in their PS3 and Xbox 360 server traffic due to the recent $500,000 cash injection as part of the stimulus package. With the GTA V Heists release date nowhere in sight, some players have been wondering what to do now after blowing the $500,00 cash almost instantly.

While there is obviously a lot to do in GTA V after completing the game, such as solving the jet pack mystery, Heists is the one missing content that many GTA V players feel can fill their missing desire. We’ve heard that many players have now stopped playing GTA V online entirely, either due to becoming bored or just out of sheer frustration on the recent changes that Rockstar has made.

Rockstar recently deployed the stimulus package at last, so all players who played GTA V Online in October should have already seen $500,000 deposited into their accounts. As you can guess though, many players have already spent that cash – on a quick shopping spree or bought up that property that they have always wanted.

Rockstar knows deep down that players want to see Heists badly, but at the same time they are happy to keep players waiting until 2014 with no sign whatsoever that it will be coming before the end of the year. Having said that though, we have spotted that the developer does have some information to share on GTA V Heists soon.

Heists is in development and coming soon!
Heists is in development and coming soon!

In the comment section of their Newswire post about the Stimulus Package, Rockstar has revealed to one frustrated gamer that new Heists release information is coming soon, as you’ll see in the screenshot above. Hopefully this will include the GTA V Heists release date, but we’ll have to wait and see.

We think that Rockstar will be able to win back a lot of angry GTA V players by making amends with Heists. Timing is everything of course, so who knows it could even be a lovely Christmas present to end the year.

Are you in the same boat of having nothing to do in GTA V anymore after blowing the $500,000 in a day? If so, give us your thoughts on the continued wait for Heists – will you wait as long as it takes?

I have been waiting for this game forever, to come out .. really enjoyed the first couple of weeks..now its just boring. No new online missions. No online heist as promised.. and unless you buy the cash cards. You will be forced to play the same missions ooooover and over. Im done with this game. And so is maaaaaany many others!

My biggest issue with the online are the missions.. they get old… FAST… drive here shoot this person steal this thing drive back and you spawn so damn far from where you are suppose to be you spend 15 minutes just driving to the place. It is very tedious. They’re all the same. The missions are suppose to be fun but they feel like a chore.

I think people have to remember this is still a business. Also the technology in games now. They could let everything out at once but why do that when they can do what apple does. With the ability to update everyones systems with new things whenever they want the lil give you little by little so that way every small thing begins to seem like a big deal. You are very closed minded if you think heist is where itll end. All these complaints are probably things they have in the works even before you thought about it. These are… Read more »

Interesting they released gta 5 soon before next gen consoles… they would have known about it. Also interesting how the main game ‘trained’ you for online content….races, robberies, sky diving etc etc… I imagine end of 2014 we may see gta6 being advedtisdd as a fully online mmo… gta online is clearly a beta game. If they admitted that people would be less pissed. Next time it will be better…

Its frustrating because I could list off 100 relatively small things they could do to this game to make it a lot better. I feel like this feature was rushed, while still sucking up a lot of resources and caused the single player (while still pretty good) to not be everything it could have been.

I will be honest, I was anticipating GTA online sooo much, but it really is a train wreck. I honestly played a MTA server based out of Hungary with horrible lag issues and people hacking getting ready for a return to San Andreas. Close to the GTA V release date, they announce the online won’t be available for an entire month. I figured they were working out all the bugs, right? I was disappointed when the iFruit app was only for iPhones and not for Android, and nearly 2 months later, I am 100% done with the game with only… Read more »

Yeah rockstar screwed the pooch on this one ps4 comes out Friday and I think they have failed to realize that. Half their population will be gone to those dedicated sony fans (and Microsoft for Xbox one) will get these new systems first day release. Which leaves everyone else hoping and waiting who will probably convert over to next gen by The holidays rockstar messed up

For me this game gout so boring quick atleast with other games the fact of there is just more to in other games which keeps you interested the problem with GTA online is there is not enough interesting content to keep you playing for months on end while rockstar take the piss with updates

Are we all playing the same game here? cause I’ve been having a blast online and not once have gotten bored. Although i have to agree that the dunce cap punishment is probably the stupidest thing i have even seen in a video game.

I wouldnt be so dissapointed at doing the same mission over and over but im level 145 and doing missions with friends lower than me yields on average less than $2000 when they get double, they do only get half of what i do for higer level missions but how does that stabilize the economy my stuff costs more, so i lose to help others way to support team work rockheads

worthless game doesn’t even let u play with friends if u blow too many cars up… last i checked the game was named after a felony.. and rockstar can regulate u playing with ur friends. it doesnt make sense for a game u can do anything in… you can do anything but blow up other peoples cars…BS… FU rockstar

I had nothing to do even before the 500k stimulus… Haven’t played the game in weeks so it just sits in my bank account.. I got sick of just driving around shooting people. That’s all the missions are.. Drive here, kill these people, walk over the “coke”, drive back… Occasionally you have to move a vehicle from one place to another.. I’ve only found 1 or 2 jobs that are somewhat different from that formula but that’s not enough to keep me interested.. When heists come back i’ll give it another shot.. Until then it’s Battlefield 4 for me

I was excited about the stimulus until we actually got it. Patch 1.05 caused my level 85 character with millions in vehicles, weapons, property and mostly, TIME all gone. The stimulus only bought back my apartment, a change of clothes, and some ammo. All my friends are now 100+ with missions that I get half $$ for, and I cannot even offer the same effort because I lack armor, health, skills, weaponry, and ammo. Way to go. I would have rather kept my character and all it had then lose it to the patch that was designed specifically to prevent… Read more »

I’m going trade this game in. Rock star should’ve been ready but heist are still in development, I’m done gta v

gta failed

your beta testing should not be the same as a release date (gta online). they feed you this bs about having all of this fantastic content in the game and with hold it from the gamer. Gta4 is what got me into gaming. Gta5 is what got me to stop

I’ve read a lot of comments from whiny bitches. Take off from GTA and don’t come back. We won’t miss you. Go enjoy CoD: Ghosts.

It has become boring and I really don’t think rockstar is going to keep the following they expect if they don’t roll out the heists soon! I haven’t played in days. People enjoy the always changing part of gaming. Not doing the same thing over and over. It takes away the thrill.
