I’m guessing the reason they required us to reset it every single time was to gauge how popular the setting was was collecting data on how often people switched back to defensive mode.

They could have saved that setting though. Users could have switched back at any time if they wanted to return to Offensive mode.

Release Date, Trailer and Information coming in the next 3 days for the Summer Update.

It will launch next week.

 

The silence today is my confirmation, as I said before.

 

 

The calm before the storm...

 

3 possibilities:

 

1. They say nothing 》 It's coming next week

2. They give the release date

3. They say something (but no date) 》 It's not coming next week

 

And if (1.) happens, they will:

 

4. Give info and date on Wednesday, Thursday or Friday

It's definitely coming this month, August 20th seems perfect for a release date.

R* mentioned we are getting more info which should happen this Thursday/Friday, they gave us a two-weeks event, that's what they did to GTAO as well before the release of the casino update.

The certification/QA process takes at least two weeks, I don't think this is a coincidence ?

Going by GTAV Steamdb, it seems like R* haven't started working on the next update for GTA Online even though they pushed background updates to hotfix bugs and glitches.

It's not like they took a major break from GTAO after the casino update, development on the next update usually start a week or two after the release of a new update.

This just confirm that R* is heavily focused on this new update we are about to get.

Yeah, it’s inconvenient as f*ck and easily fixable - just saying it wouldn’t have been a negligent oversight.

Well knowing Rockstar they're considering it as content added to the game. Like wow it took 5 years for them to notice how ridiculous PVP in GTAO was with an exploitable passive mode. Now it's fixed? Jeez...took long enough. It's almost like nobody at Rockstar plays their own game :/

Probably a similar deal with the gun locker.  By forcing us to carry around every useless piece of clutter for all these months, they probably have a pretty good idea of what guns people actually use.

 

Of course, there is no reason that they couldn’t and shouldn’t have product tested that on practice groups before releasing it.  

 

This approach to game design of releasing half a product and then testing it on the audience before tweaking it is really sh*tty. By the time they have reached any conclusions on what to change, most of the players have already burnt their enthusiasm out on a half assed product.

 

It’s like they are planning to have an enjoyable game with full content in 5 years time, rather than now.  There should be 10 times the amount of content there is now. The game will always be in beta.

If gathering data is one of the more important things for Rockstar to get, before releasing an update, I think they find loads of it on their social media pages. Had they remotely paid attention, they'd have fixed old bugs a long time ago and improved the game in many other ways already. But no, it has to be another update with how many bugs fixed this time? 4000 again? Leaving how many in there? I'm not counting on saddle bags being fixed and getting new outfits will bring that frustrating bug of saving them on your saddle once again.

I'd gladly swallow my own words, but to expectations, I'm not keeping the ketchup bottle ready.

5. none of the above.

"There is much more to reveal about becoming a Bounty Hunter, Trader and Collector in the weeks ahead." .. is what they said, nearly 2 weeks ago.

the exact wording, and the lack of any details so far makes me believe it's not coming next week. I'd like to think it will, and hope it does, but the sheer lack of drip fed info so far after nearly 2 weeks since then, I don't see it happening.

maybe some details will come to light sometime this week, but do you really think that rockstar, the masters of suspense are just going to let it all flood out in a couple of days? I don't. I think they'll drop little bits here and there in their weekly social media updates for the next 3 weeks, and then let it go live on the 10th of september.

like I said, I'd like to think I'm wrong and it will come next week, and maybe it will, but I honestly don't see it, and people who made these predictions will be the ones will be the ones waving their pitchforks around should it not release when they thought it would. it's better to err on the side of caution and not get your hopes up to have them knocked down should that self-set deadline come and go without any change.

for me, I'm waiting for the first details to drop and then I'll add a cautiously optimistic 2 weeks onto that at the very least.

Having 32 Players on a giant sized map like this one does not really feel "full of players life" IMO. To each its own perception I guess.

 

Talking about emptiness was more refering to the lack of content than the player count in fact. If you find a ton of things to do then I guess that is a good thing for you. I might lack imagination but there is nothing to this point that I havent repeated dozens of time and I personally got bored with offered content a long while ago. 

 

Coming back to the update : I personnally hope that the progression for the 3 roles needs some dedication and play time before we run out of things to do waiting for the next update.

I’ve never seen 32 in any lobby I’ve played in. It’s mainly 22-25 max players. 

 

The 3 new roles hopefully will bring us something to keep busy with indeed. Something worth grinding for. Because a grind it will be, knowing Rockstar.

Honestly, my biggest fear/doubts about RDO (regardless of updates) are what appear to be serious hardware and/or network limits.

 

I have yet to see any consistent "full of life" areas in RDO--meaning 32 players, with all the NPCs and animals as you've come to expect in single player.

 

The world of RDO is constantly struggling to populate enough life around you--and all players in the game--and IMO simply can't keep up. As a result, immersion and game play tanks.

Fun knows what he’s talking about. I’ve been a die-hard GTA player for ages. I’ve seen Rockstar’s patterns. I think a lot of you in this forum just aren’t familiar enough with how Rockstar works. If you stick around, you will get there. Two things are for sure - it’s likely coming the 20th, and the wait will be worth it. I love running businesses in GTA, but not the PVP. RDR online’s slower pace is perfect for a player like me. It looks like the three rolls will be the best of all worlds. The bounty hunter will satisfy the PVE crowd. The trader will satisfy those of us who loved hunting and bringing the items to the trapper in single player (only now we take over his business). The collector role will satisfy those of us who enjoyed finding dinosaur bones and cigarette cards (much like the current playing card scavenger hunt in GTA Online). I believe there really is about to be something for everybody, whether it’s through this update or additional roles to be added in the near future. Rockstar takes their time, but it’s not about GTA vs RDR, or forgetting about the game, etc. it’s about getting things as right as they possibly can. Remember, in their opinion, the actual online game is officially only 4 months old. Everything prior to spring was beta. So we are all getting a major update in the first 4 months of launch. I know beta didn’t “feel” beta, but we all knew that was how rockstar viewed it. Our patience is about to pay off. Rest assured!

Summer ends 23rd of September which is a Monday so I'm not expecting the update until the 17th.  Anything before that will be a bonus. 

 

Actually the way my luck runs with updates it will almost definitely be the 17th as that is the next Tuesday I'll be stuck at work for 12 hours.

Take-Two is finally taking action against JStone (a YouTube channel that promotes massive money glitches). I hope when the Summer Update arrives R* will change their exploit policies like they did in GTAO recently.

They really need to get the money glitches under control, with whatever means necessary. These can really hurt the game.

where did you read this?

personally, I'm all in favour of punishing exploiters, so if it's true, it's fine by me.

Is my fear. Because it doesn't use P2P and won't allow us to play solo and then re-connect as you can in GTAO. The instant the network has a little micro-hiccup.... you get disconnected.

6 years of GTAO, only time I couldn't play due to network errors was 1 week of the Beta.

RDR2, constant drops, all the heckin time.

Can't see us getting anything on GTAO day, but I do hope we get some news tomorrow.

 

Let's be honest, this radio silence bullsh*t isn't getting anyone excited or building any hype, this place is f*cking dead.

 

I still think the 20th seems likely, what other reason is there to have this two week event which ends on the 19th? It's not like anything groundbreaking happened in GTAO that R* has made room on the Newswire for, it's been two standard dripfeed car release weeks.
