The 1.13 patch for "GTA 5" did not come out at a time in which many fans were expecting. According to a report from Product Reviews on May 1, the title update was speculated to be released late last month. Although Rockstar Games did not mention anything over the past several days, one potential insider revealed that the development team may have ran into some "complications."

The "GTA Online" mode has caused many problems for Rockstar North. At launch, a lot of players ending up losing progress due to the cloud saving feature. Furthermore, exploiters have been taking advantage of numerous glitches in order to quickly earn a huge amount of cash and reputation points. The development team ended up releasing a bunch of patches.

The "GTA 5" 1.13 title update was expected to include the "High Life Update" for "GTA Online." It will add new DLC apartments to purchase as players should be able to own multiple properties. Furthermore, a few new vehicles, weapons and clothing options are included in the expansion as well. Similar to the previous DLC packs for the multiplayer mode, the "High Life Update" should be free for the end user.

Based on the previous release patterns of title updates for "GTA 5," Rockstar Games could be planning to release the 1.13 patch within the next couple of weeks. The company has been updating the open-world action-adventure video once a month starting with the 1.08 title update in Dec. of 2013. The last patch, 1.12, came out for the PS3 and Xbox 360 on April 8.

Rockstar Games did disclose that the "High Life Update" should be coming during the spring season. Furthermore, the company is also planning to add "GTA Online" heists into the fold at around the same time. Product Reviews believed that the long-requested match type would be arriving through the 1.14 patch for "GTA 5."

Although only the PS3 and Xbox 360 versions of the open-world action-adventure video game are available, it may also come out on other systems. Several leaks and retail listings are hinting that "GTA 5" on the PC, PS4 and Xbox One will be released in the future. A formal announcement has still not yet been made by Rockstar Games, however, the publisher of the software product.
