Rockstar Teases GTA Online's New Heist Update And Location
Here's a brief look at what's next for Grand Theft Auto V's online component.
Heists are one of the major highlights of Grand Theft Auto V's multiplayer mode, GTA Online, but given their scale, it's not often that new ones are introduced through new updates. The first video teaser for what appears to be the game's next heist expansion has now been released, and it may reveal a new location coming to the game. [Update: Rockstar has officially announced GTA Online's new Cayo Perico heist. It releases on December 15.]
The video below was shared on Twitter, and while brief, it does offer some tantalizing teases. It refers to the "El Rubio dossier" and shows an unidentified corpse laying on the beach. There are also a series of images rapidly flashed on screen showing off fields, a guard tower, and some sort of elaborate compound.
Just when we'll be seeing more of this new content is anyone's guess, but Rockstar has been teasing some kind of new addition to the game's Diamond Casino and Resort recently. Players have been warned about noise levels related to ongoing construction at the Diamond, although this new teaser video would suggest we'll actually see an entirely new location added to the game.
The most recent GTA Online heist was the Diamond Casino Heist, which was added in late 2019. That involved setting up a retro arcade business to serve as a front for the operation itself.
GTA Online continues to go strong, proving to be a major ongoing moneymaker for Rockstar. The company plans to bring the game to next-gen consoles, but an exact release date or enhancements for the PS5 and Xbox Series X/Series S editions have not been announced. When it does arrive, PS Plus members will have three months to get free access to the standalone version of GTA Online that's launching next year. In the meantime, PlayStation players subscribed to Plus can receive free in-game cash for every month they play.
