It seems abundantly clear to me that Rockstar took the easy way out and announced GTA for next gen early in order to shirk their responsibilities to keep developing for current gen. Through either arrogance or incompetence, they have completely bungled this game and lied to buyers promising heists for over nine months. Furthermore, it's been over one month since any content was released at all. This is shocking since Rockstar famously promised heists affirmatively (yet again) by the end of spring. All they had to do to make up for their failure was to release 3 new t-shirts, a re-skinned car, and a copycat rifle this week or last and many would've forgotten and kept blindly playing. But no, either through their arrogance or complete ineptitude, Rockstar is silent.

 

Now this isn't to say that current gen won't get new content but I wouldn't be surprised if the game releases on PS4/XBone before we see it. That's how long off it will be. This company is a joke. They should be held to task for their lies to consumers like other gaming companies have by the community.

"RockstarGames has taken the easy way out"

 

 

We still have a couple of months, OP. Let us wait and see what happens between now and then.

I believe heists were intended for past gen consoles but console limitations keep them running trying to get them to work as intended.

I wouldn't say they've abandoned it. We will still be getting content sooner or later, they are just taking their sweet sweet time with it. That's not what annoys me really, it's that they don't announce anything. I absolutely hate being in the dark about anything, I like to know the details. I'm the same with new Games, Movies etc.

 

I will say though, they are definitely probably more focused on Next Gen now, and building towards that. Because even though it's already released, that's still a pretty big release. The PC community is huge, and to them it's a fresh game.

Good. That means it's working :D

 

OT: Someone should infiltrate R* and see what the devs are doin'. Do it like the IAA kidnap mission in SP...

OP its only been just over a month without another update. If we are in the same situation in another months time then your point will make sense, but currently your just the arrogant one here.

Cause it is the first generation of consoles to feature online in a big way. It's special that way :)

 

 

Nah. More like people aren't ready to move on to 8th gen so easily, myself included.

>Implying R* will leave developing content for probably close to 80% of their fanbase on PS3/360 even when One/PS4 versions are out.

 

Idiot.

 

There will be more players on 360 & PS3 than PS4/One because not everyone will drop all that for a new console, so thinking that R* will abandon it is just you wanting to bitch about no update today.

If you are only going to buy a game for one thing you should have waited a few weeks before even considering to buy the game at all, just to make sure that thing is at least good.

Most people on the other hand buy the game for all it has to offer and only see heists as a small loss in a giant game. We will get them eventually and I really don't give a sh*t when. I'll probably do one heist and not care anymore. Such an overreaction.

I think they are doing fine as far as giving content. Everyone is disappointed in the lack of heists but I'm sure their reasoning is far less nefarious than them abandoning current gen gamers on purpose. They've steadily given us content almost every month and it's been free. Even the best games don't usually deliver that. Sure it may be something to "hold us over" until they release a substantial DLC for both generation consoles at once, but I certainly don't feel cheated to this point.

How to punish glitchers and modders not come out with things that are related to money and only release small updates with cars and clothes.

Heists are GTA's Half Life 3. Most of the community gave up on them by now, and it's not that we don't want them, it's just that we know deep down in our hearts that there's no way they can live up to the expectations after so much time. You didn't get scammed out of anything. You're still getting free DLC every month or two, so why do you hate that they take a little bit longer?

 

I swear, the hate for R* is growing in the wrong direction. Instead of hating them for not giving you more free stuff, try to hate them for things that matter, like their poor community skills, leaving us in the dark, and not fixing things.

You do realise GTA Online will probably be updated in tandem for every system because it's the exact same thing?

They are a f*cking joke, a shell of their former selves.  

 

They probably read these forums and see how much hate they get from real fans.  Good, because f*ck them.  If they actually listened to their real fans they could potentially earn their respect back but that's gonna be a long hard road for them.

In the beginning, I was expecting Payday level type of heists.  We got f*cking bullsh*t deathmatches, lame ass races, and lame suicide missions against the cops.

 

I used to f*ck with GTA for the crime simulation, now it's a f*ck fest where you skydive and ride inside helicopters doing f*ck all.
