So some sad soul posted this few hours ago asking whether heists are gonna be released by the end of spring or not on the rockstar support forum

And then, out of ALL answers, Rockstar approved this one

Notice how it says by the end of June or start of July? Yup Rockstar approved that.

I'm not bitching about heists, I just wanted you all to know that according to Rockstar, spring ends by the end of June, so brace your selves guys, millions of threads about heists not out yet are coming by June 21st.

I don't think people really even cares anymore...

 

If it comes out soon great, if's not it's nothing new and people will go on just as they have been for the last 7 months

Spring in the United States isn't different to spring in Europe... The seasons are reversed only in the Southern Hemisphere

Meh, it's just excuses.

And you know what...given all the other challenges going on with this game...glitches, hacks, time-outs, etc...if the implementation isn't working as planned...I'd rather they spent more time fixing it versus adding yet another broken component to the game.

That said, this is disappointing.

:facedesk:


This, the idiot that works for R* that wrote that just blows my mind.
Seasons only reverse based upon location in either the Northern or Southern Hemisphere.

Seriously R*, seriously?

Heists being delayed (again, for the 6th time), blah-blah-blah, that's not a surprise at all....what IS a surprise is how daft are the people R* have working for them....

The part he was agreeing to was that they would be letting us know in due time. As far as I know the end of June was always known to be the end of Spring. Im still holding money on the 17th. In fact I am expecting the first word of it to drop on newswire tommorrow afternoon.

Your faith in the Rockstar Gods is commendable. I'm an atheist in this regard.

Yes they have done stupid things like this several times and are used to copying and pasting answers - they then go on and remove it

Where exactly? The calendrical start of summer is on June 21st and the meteorological start on June 1st here. The former date is much more important and the official start. At least in my country.

I'm expecting 17th also. I mean why would they say "spring release" and then NOT release it?

For a game developer

Winter is Jan-Mar
Spring is Apr-June
Summer is July-Sep
Fall is Oct-Dec

Each includes the full 3 months meaning June 30 is the supposed deadline.
Typically when a dev says fall they mean Christmas release.

This information comes directly from a senior game developer (Of a different company).
You dont need to believe me but I cant prove it as he has asked me to not name drop him.

I think the 'next gen' announcement has taken the wind out of the heists sails. As GTA Online will be around for quite some time I expect they will come along at some point

From wikipedia:

 

"The beginning of spring is not always determined by fixed calendar dates. The phenological or ecological definition of spring relates to biological indicators; the blossoming of a range of plant species, and the activities of animals, or the special smell of soil that has reached the temperature for micro flora to flourish."

 

http://en.wikipedia....Spring_(season)

 

Frankly I'm surprised that no one took this into consideration when R* said "Heists this Spring."  Perhaps next time you'll stop and smell the soil before jumping to conclusions.

Or just, you know, look at the history of release windows...

This comes off as an excuse, the better answer would have been to not even answer it. If you try to put out a PR fire, all that's gonna happen is it's gonna get worse.

Best thing Rockstar can do at this point is ignore everyone about it, release it, and then ignore the dozens of "but spring is over" comments at the end of replies to the newswire.
