If you've posted ideas or complaints about GTA Online on the internet, Rockstar Games is probably listening. Art director Aaron Garbut confirmed in an interview released Thursday that the multiplayer component of Grand Theft Auto V for the PS3 and Xbox 360 will continue to evolve based on fan input.
"What I love about our GTA Online plans is that the game is no longer static," Garbut told Edge. "We can continue to add these things and evolve. That’s even more exciting these days, where through forums, Reddit, etc, we have a real direct connection to the people playing the game. We can respond to what they are into and what they hate more than ever. It’s something that really suits the way we work, the way we’re always trying to adapt the experience and avoid walking blindly down a set path."
After a shaky launch back in October, GTA Online is starting to see significant updates that add features instead of just trying to fix bugs and connectivity issues. The addition of the Deathmatch & Race Creators Beta is the biggest yet and it will continue to evolve.
Multiplayer co-op Heists are still planned for 2014 though a more firm date has yet to be announced by Rockstar. You should also expect to hear the first details about the single-player campaign DLC as well.
