Next Major GTA 5 Update Release Date, More Details Announced
"Further Adventures in Finance and Felony" comes out on June 7.
Rockstar Games has provided more details on the next major update for Grand Theft Auto V's online mode. As announced earlier this month, the update--"one of GTA Online's biggest and deepest updates yet," Rockstar said--is titled "Further Adventures in Finance and Felony."
As the name suggests, it builds on the Executives and Other Criminals update, which came out in 2015.
"Further Adventures in Finance and Felony continues a player's mission to become the ultimate criminal kingpin of Los Santos and Blaine County in one of GTA Online's biggest and deepest updates yet," reads a line from the description.
Players will be able to expand their criminal networks and become the CEO of what's being called a "Criminal Enterprise." As part of this, players can purchase a high-rise office and warehouses that can be used to sell and store "a range of contraband."
The update also adds some new vehicles, one of which is the Pegassi Reaper (see it in the gallery above). Additionally, Rockstar teases that it comes with "exciting new features and much more."
More details on Further Adventures in Finance and Felony, along with a new trailer, will come out next week. The update itself is expected to land on June 7, presumably only for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.
"For crazy vehicular action comes a major update to the wild world of GTA Online racing and stunting that will introduce a new realm of creative and fun games," Rockstar said.
There will be new "stunt-ready" vehicles and gear, while more props will be added to the Rockstar Content Creator toolsuite. No further details about any of this new content were provided.
In addition to these two updates, Rockstar says even more are coming that will add things like fresh Adversary modes. Additionally, Rockstar will introduce new arenas for the In and Out mode, which arrived in GTA Online last week. Looking further ahead, Rockstar said it will add more "fun competitive team-based modes," though none were named or even hinted at.
In other news about GTA Online, documents in the Leslie Benzies vs. Take-Two lawsuit revealed that the multiplayer mode has already brought in more than $500 million in revenue from microtransactions.
Single-player DLC for GTA V is still under consideration, but the big numbers for GTA Online may explain why Rockstar appears to be prioritizing multiplayer content at this time.
