Rockstar Games has provided an update as to when GTA Online will receive the online heists content as part of the Grand Theft Auto 5 spring update. According to a post on the GTA forums from April 4, Rockstar Games will release GTA 5 patch 1.12 next week for PS3 and Xbox 360, however, online heists for GTA Online will not be part of the first update, as it seems the high life update along with the heists will have to wait a little longer.
In an official response to fans, Rockstar disclosed that GTA 5 update 1.12 will be released next week and it will contain the Capture Creator content for GTA Online. As to when online heists will join GTA Online, Rockstar Games once again has asked fans to stay tuned for further announcements as online heists and high life will come to GTA Online later this spring. Find Rockstar’s full statement concerning GTA Online online heists below:
Hey all, great to see so much excitement about the updates we have planned for GTA Online this Spring and beyond. For those asking when they can expect to see these updates, the first will be the Capture Creator, available next week. The High Life Update and Heists will be out later this Spring and stay tuned for further updates here on the Newswire.
We previously reported a potential release date for the online heists courtesy of a GTA 5 content leaker. It was said that online heists would be made available on April 20. Though Rockstar’s recent statement doesn’t discredit that possibility, it does make it seem less likely. Find an official breakdown of GTA Online heists mode below:
Heists: Coming this spring to Grand Theft Auto Online, team up with your most trusted Crew members or with random other mercenaries in Grand Theft Auto Online to pull off cooperative Heist Missions for glory and profit. We know many in the GTA Online community have been looking forward to this update — stay tuned for much more information to come.
