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!

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?
