What an ironic username for that comment

 

there won’t be a map expansion. It’ll be the same game we currently have with 4K and 60fps capability on consoles, combined with increased ped and traffic density. Most of the new cars from Online will be added to SP and to MP traffic, and there’ll maybe be a handful of new sidemissions in SP. That’s it. Expecting anything more is setting yourself up for disappointment.

Just like everyone else said in the last 7 years;

There wouldn't be any heis... oh they finally added it.

Quit asking for that, there wont be any yach...oh they added that.

Oh well, they won't be any lowrid...oh they added that too.

No one cares about you dirty leather biker fa....oh they listened to you? 

Rockstar said they aren't doing heists agai....they opened the mountain and added the Jetpack? 

No there aren't going to be any nightclu...wow they used the same voice actor for Tony?

Gambling isn't allowed in that country so they'll never add the casi...they changed the building? 

Oh well, we won't get to rob the cas....

There never gonna make a cops-n-cro...you found what Fun?

 

There won't be a map expansion...

The PS5 version is free (online only) so they won’t be getting money off that. Unless you’re referring to shark cards? That’s always going to bring in $$$$

No. Next gen GTAO is not free. It's free for the first 3 months on Playstation if you have PS Plus. Then you have to buy it.

 

It is not a free upgrade, it's going to be a new game just like the jump from Ps3 to Ps4.

As long as you download it within the first 3 months it’s available then you get to keep it for free forever. Most people will download it within the first 3 months so they don’t have to spend that extra 65 bux.

Every GTA map is an Island, so we can be cast away to any 🤷‍♂️

 

/sarcasm the way I see it, the image of Wilson, which is a nod to the movie "Cast Away", with the shadowing of a city skyline, resembles a theory for our characters being 'cast away' to another city.... I'm not saying the skyline resembles Liberty City, but...

@Fun 2 mentioned they added some extra code to that, something related to payote plants but I still haven't heard anything about it. And I still wan't able to get it. Maybe its locked for now? Or maybe I'm just unlucky.

Adding a single interior/replacing a single building and some cars is a bit different from adding an entire square bloody mile of new map, come on mate.

Nah, ofc it all depends on the size of that new map but I'm sure they put waaaay more effort into Casino+Arena War (multiple maps with different sets of props) then they would need to put into a small island (let say it would be the size of paleto bay). After all you could make most of that island by recycling existing assets and that would save a lot of time. Houses, beaches, palm trees, piers and other props are already in the game.

But you couldn't do that with the dlcs I just mentioned. The only things they recycled in Arena War were props from canceled SP DLCs (just couple post-apo buildings and alien structures and thats it). But take all the "landmass" of all of those maps in arena war (8-12? can't remember), put them together and you have something thats way bigger then a new island. Add to that all the effort that they put into those two casino dlcs and you have a small town perfect for a heist. 

If we had to "measure the effort" needed for something like that I would say it would be a little bit more then what they put into the biggest dlc so far.

edit:
Also don't forget that the new heist will be most likely inspired by the casino heist. So they will reuse a lot of existing code and animations from that as well.

The maps from AW were just a bunch of existing props from the cut SP content though. Surely that didn't require very much effort to put together, just take the arena shape and fill it with already existing props. Future shock was alien war stuff and the junkyard looking stuff was probably from the cut zombie dlc.

Don't you be dissing Double Money on Store Hold-Ups, with the game being rife with global signals and Oppressor Mk2's to destroy hours of playtime in mere seconds, the week that happened was like time travelling back to 2013, throw an Armoured Kuruma from 2015 into the mix and it was like playing the cut version of the Fleeca Job where you had to rob 5 of them in one run instead of just one.

I loved that 2x. I did loads and would spend all week again robbing those stores if we get another bump. Mind you, I'll rob some anyway, lol. :)

No not, really. They add stuff people ask for, Its been shown that they plan on continuing the platform and adding a map expansion is what people have asked for. If they make it, people will $$$PAY$$$. They know that and want the money.

I'm a f*ckin' idiot, for all of last week I had no idea that they were doing that, "Whichever's more popular this week influences next week" thing again, like with Arena War few weeks back, completely glossed over that paragraph.

People $$$PAY$$$ anyway and without them committing thousands of dev hours to building a map. So long as smaller updates keep the shark card revenue rolling in and the player base is large, what is their incentive to do the massive amount of work required to add a new map to the game?

 

"They add stuff people ask for" is not a good enough argument. Adding a new city to the game is not remotely on the scale of any other update they've ever done. It's probably more work and more expense than all the other updates added together, unless they totally half-ass it.

That is why this one is the biggest, major, update starting the next chapter in GTA Online with an all new look on hysts in an entirely new location

What is your exact theory here? that they are adding another city in the winter update?

 

I'd bet anyone here $100 that it won't be anything larger than a small island, and probably not even that.

That is literally what Rockstar said, not some theory of mine. I just combined all the different newswire 'quotes' and summarized them into that sentence. 

 

My actual theory is the long post I made on page 589. No where does it say Liberty City is coming in December. I only advocate that it will end up in Online sometime in the future.

Los Santos has so many fine properties lying around, it’d be nice for them to make some purchasable. This is one of the things players have been asking for for a long time. I’m sure this update theme will be fail-free.
 

At best they can be customized, just like the Eclipse Apartments. And they should have many interactions. They should be no less than Michael’s residence. I really like the coloured window in the master bedroom in Michael’s house.

Quoting so I remember to laugh when you are proven wrong.

 

Rockstar marketing, well, markets. Anything they ever say can only be taken at face value. Every claim they have ever made has been weaker than the key caps they type it on. Why be hopeful now?

 

Edit: to further my point, look at the resent account wipes, Rockstar doesn’t give a flying f***, MrBossFTW will eat it up anyways and that’s all that has ever mattered.

Well, i don't put my hand in the fire for neither a new location ot of LS or a new building in LS. I also said that i'm prepared for being nothing of a big deal, like all those newswire lines being just for marketing purposes and all of it be resumed as, like we say in my country: "a mountain that gave birth to a rat". And i leave my previous post here below.

P.S.: Do we really know statistically how many players got their accounts reset/banned? Bcz, all i hear about it is all those clickbait youtubers saying that and that's suspicious. Is something like a friend of them said: "well...me and a friend got banned, bcz we used that money glitch." Clickbait youtubers hearing this: "hum...i can make a video about this...lets see... [start to write the title of the video in caps lock] ----» BEWARE, ROCKSTAR IS BANNING THOUSANDS OF PEOPLE BECAUSE THIS MONEY GLITCH, CLICK ON IT, IT'S TOTALLY LEGIT AND I WILL NOT SAY A BUNCH OF BULLsh*t BCZ I HAVE PROFESSIONAL ETHIC".

"Just a bunch of existing props"? More like 2 or 3 already existing buildings with junk on top, broken bridge from LS and couple alien towers. Sure, just as I said all of that was most likely from canceled sp dlcs (still effort that someone had to put it at some point in the past but I get your point). But all the giant "nightmare" picnic props, car upgrades and the ground itself? All of that is most likely new. So like at least 90% of it. And all of those maps have more "land" then the island would need to have.

Just trying to give a visual example to people who think creating a new landmass would be "too much effort for R* " 

I mean c'mon people, you just drop a mountain in the water and you go from there. Fans make that kind of content all the time. They been doing it since gta 3. Literally every gta had some kind of tropical island mod. And we all know R* loves implementing popular mods

But yeah, ofc it would probably require a little bit more effort then they put into Casino dlc. But not so much more that its completely unbelievable. Still, knowing R* it will be probably way smaller then we expect it to be.

Yes correct.

 

The standalone version (GTAO only) is free for the first 3 months if you’re a PS Plus member. If you don’t download it within the first 3 months you have to pay for it. I was trying to explain that to Mach because I think he may have been confused thinking the 3 months was only a trial. Once you download it it’s yours forever unless you delete it.

People are gonna be seething when they announce that the update will in fact be set on a new island but will only be accessible during the heist finale. They're going to tease it with the heist and only next gen players will have full free roam access to the island. I will bet money on this. Drug dealer 101: the first hit is always free, but it's just a taste..
