This is coming from a heist fanatic, but I think in the "biggest ever GTA Online update" we should really focus on the 'where' aspect of the heist. It's a new take, in an entirely new location, but I highly doubt it's gonna be the biggest heist to date considering the Casino Heist was already crowned with this designation. But, we'll see, maybe this is the biggest, biggest heist in LS (?) so far.

 

As for where it could be? Personally hoping for LC or a new island, but I'll take anything. Kind of doubt the biggest DLC will bring just a single building overhaul (but would not be surprised, that's coming from Rockstar).

 

Aside from all this, I hope they also add a way to quickly transfer cars between garages and organize garages, from an app, website or whatever they whip up.

It’s prolly just going to be a rewashed union depository heist from sp.  that they made in about 4 weeks and are just going to use the same interiors we had from it lmao.  Is the new heist suppose to come out for the summer or winter dlc? Everything is confusing and strange how they pretty much announced both DLC’s already.  Their classic build up for hype status quote is no longer…

New biggest heist? But the Depository was a bigger heist than the biggest heist we got with casino. Casino was also the last biggest update which added 2 new locations which was the casino than the 2nd half was the arcade.

I really wouldn't even wonder, but they sure are building up hype with their choice of words.

 

Wouldn't really mind a UD heist either, just make it hard and rewarding (minimum 5 mil take, is that really that bad?)

 

Also, the heist is winter update.

Unofficial poll - how do you think Rockstar will tease the 'big winter DLC' after the 'small summer DLC' is released? 

React with 'YEE' for backend scripts in-game that add / move props etc. as occurred with the buildup to the Casino opening. Or maybe airline tickets appearing in your penthouse / apartment (or new destinations appearing at the airport). 
React with 'fir thi bairns' for a text message / series of texts or Emails being received by our 'toon, be they from a new contact, a mystery contact, or an existing character. 
React with 'pepoevil' for Rockstar doing nothing in-game, and relying on Newswire to tell us nothing keep us informed. 

 

Or you can 'KEKW' at me because I'm a moron and didn't come up with an obvious option.

I don't think they would have written "entirely new location" if it would be just another remake of an already existing building.

Their job is to grab eyes and get people invested. Intentionally vague statements are the bread and butter of marketing. Besides, what would they say if it was just a building? “A new heist in an entirely new building?” “A new heist in an entirely new business?” Neither of those sound nearly as exciting, both linguistically and when you think about how that would translate into the game.

My bad I misremembered what it said. Smaller update this summer, so probably a week or two after Red Dead, and then the big island heist update in December.

 

"A summer update to GTA Online is also on the way, offering up a fun mix of diverse new content from the game’s massive array of experiences to enjoy.

 

 

 

Later this year players can expect more big updates for both games, including some exciting new extensions and augmentations to an existing role in Red Dead Online, and the biggest ever update for GTA Online, featuring our latest take on Heists in an entirely new location."

huh?

6 hours ago, Mach1bud said:

An update coming for GTA on Tuesday is actually plausible. I feel like people are misreading the Newswire.

 

We are getting a smaller update for GTA first, which will include that supercar they posted. Later on this summer (probably september knowing rockstar lol) we are getting that large heist update with the map expansion.

And why didn't they just say it then? I think it's going to be a week or two later.

Again, I am pretty sure R* considered the Diamond Casino to be an "entirely new location" so I am not going to expect a real map expansion to another city.

Cancer city? What the hell is even that?

Cancer city is wherever city where GTA Online players are. Carcer city is a place from Manhunt series and honestly...  It was mentioned several times across the franchise over the years, but as someone who have played both parts of Manhunt there's not much of a city there. Manhunt was not open world game.

think of it this way; you're the Rockstar's PR guy, responsible for the newswire posts.

You know the fans are furious on your company's long, dead silence and lack of communication.

You finally get a greenlight for posting an update now that the summer DLC is on its way to release.

They tell you the content of the new update, with some new outfits and mini games, several flashy new cars, and a brand new... Rockford Plaza.

 

Obv. you're not allowed to give any detail on the specifics of the new building, and you know the more vague you word your phrases, these foo.. er, our customers, will come up with the most bizarre speculation, keeping the 7-years-old game active and alive.

 

now, would you refer to the "New Rockford Plaza" as something underwhelming like "an another visual overhaul to a familiar landmark" or

"an entirely new location"

Edited by Ender_Year
replace rockford plaza with the Mile High Club, Getty Center, Lester's factory... anything and it'll still make sense

Read the edit, let's just quickly bury this one.

 

Under no circumstances can they rework Lesters Factory due to its use in The Fleeca Job & The Pacific Standard Job.

It's highly unlikely but if a map expansión does exist i'll gladly pay $15/20 for a remastered GTA 3 Map :r*:

Well my take on the biggest update as in new location. I’m thinking there trying to get us ready for gta 6 online make the transfer easier to swallow. With players spent real money buying shark cards and the time they put into a character to transfer makes perfect sense. Who wants to lose everything they did on this character and start fresh at square one. To me rockstar can do stupid things but there always thinking of logical things that makes sense business/player base. Let me hear what you think????

Freaking canibal bastard...i think he was only of the coldest gta characters of all time. What do you think that happened to him in that mission that he just disapeared and the cutscene focus the camera in that box? That sh*t was awkward as f*ck. Not to mention the unknown end of the game, that shot. Would be could if R* could debunk some loose ends in the 20th anniversary of the game that will celebrate in 2021, like...next year. (20 years, damn...) 😛

I still doubt there will be a "Online 2.0". This is the online part of the gta franchise and as they said themselves, it keeps expanding. The fact that they are about to ship it onto a new generation of consoles and the most likely biggest update ever kinda proves it. Atleast to me.

I personally think that a “Cops and Crooks”/ Police themed update was on the way but due to recent events Rockstar scrapped it. I think the upcoming summer update is their backup plan. It’s been 7 months since a update came for GTA Online and the summer doesn’t even sound that exciting. I know the virus slowed everything down but other game developers were able to release big updates to their games.

I personally think CnC was just a theory created by "leakers." Based on literally nothing more than a single concept art with a police car on in... something that could be a part of any other theme or adv. mode. Just like they created the narrative/"leak" that gtao has only 1 update left before R* stops supporting it basing it on no real information other then the fact that with each year R* was releasing less and less updates. So they thought "hey, it looks like they are counting down" so they tried to sell that as a leak cause they just loooove to pretend they have some insider knowledge. They just speculating the same way we are. We should believe in every little theory like its a fact.

They know what they are doing and they choose their words wisely. Thats why theres no way that they would say "entirely new location" cause they would know that people will possibly overhype it.  Thats why they never did that before until now. Overhyping something to oblivion only leaves people disappointed no matter what they do. Thats the opposite of good RP.

Isn't GTA 3 Liberty City? It was already remade for GTA 4. If anything they would just slightly upgrade the one from HD universe.

Lol I was telling you guys, sooner of later there will be someone crazy enough to suggest that the new location is just GTA 6 map. I was right! Also even if they will let us transfer our character to the next online game - I'm sure we will be starting with nothing. Part of the fun of those game is the progression. So they might let us recreate our original character in the next game but I'm 100% we will lose everything we had in gtao.

Daamn man you rly impressing all of us with your deep R* lore knowledge and that grammernazi attitude (even tho you just confused your with you're...).Too bad you can't realize that 4/5 of those cities you suggested are 100% out of the picture. There is literally 0 change that they would make a whole new city from scratch just for a free online update to a game thats 7y old.You have any idea how much work it takes to make a city like VC, LV or SF? R* has a history of going for the least effort approach when it comes to online content. Its like expecting a new map the size of RDR2 from the next RDRO update...

At least New Yankton and Libery City makes sense since those are the only HD universe cities, they wouldn't have to make them from nothing. With LC like 80% of the work is already done. With YN? I would say... like 20% (depending on the final size). But YN dosn't scream to me "a huge heist opportunity" or a good place for a new online map.Its just a small little town in the middle of nowhere.

You mean gta San Andreas? The game released in 2004? :v

Or you mean Los Santos, the map of gta V?

Depends on what you mean by that "small expansion". Give some examples.

I mean in terms of size. After hearing about the standalone version coming to console and the fact that the game is about to go onto the next generation of consoles, I personally would find it totally possible that they make the map bigger at some point. With this one update, maybe 20% compared to what we currently have? It could fit a little town for a possible Heist location and as far as I know there is not much content on the east border of the map that needs to be changed.

 

Edit: Maybe it's just my wishful thinking but I find it plausible with the next gen..
