Okay, while unfortunate... it's the later end of the usual window. Given the virus and lockdown, my big worry was that we wouldn't see it until August. Hopefully they don't repeat the After Hours marketing strategy where they tease a partnership with EDM artists, then in the last week of June we get just a teaser trailer that shows, pretty much nothing, then leaving us wih so little info for nearly a month until right before the update drops.

 

Big newswire update well in advance. Just like the Offices and Bunkers, come on Rockstar don't strain us out this year, lets have some guided hype.

My two cents speculating about a possible Cops & Crocks DLC:

I think it could work if they add a new "Law enforcer" role like the VIP/CEO or the MC President. In this case you could get access to different vehicles (police cars already in the game and maybe new police themed vehicles), related abilities and freemode jobs  through the Interaction menu. Law enforcers could get major bonus while aborting CEO/MC activities encouraging PVP (not my cup of tea actually). A new set of contact missions like Casino DLC could be added too.

The point I fail to anticipate is the paywall, I mean what kind of property you have to buy to get access to the new role? Maybe an office for your "private law enforcer" bussiness? 

Finally some requested vehicles (probably delivered on a long dripfeed) and new weapons/clothes (fingers crossed for a Princess Robot outfit) would complete the DLC.

What do you think? It makes sense?

With the exception of functional tow trucks* (the Slamvan and larger versions) there's very little reason for Rockstar to keep vehicles unavailable. 

*because Online physics be dangerous with hooked vehicles. 

They know that there are many coveted vehicles and they would be purchased through Warstock or similar (like the Lifeguard Granger, Bugstars Burrito etc.) if players are given the opportunity. That being said, Rockstar might be aware of spawn patterns and how the paywall can be circumvented..! 

Ideally Rockstar would have trade prices for some vehicles from the Arena Wars levelling system - get your rank 1000 (or whatever) for a free Rusty Tractor, or pay $25-million otherwise.

You know... I'll stay open to that idea since Rockstar don't have to do a title update to put those in and we've seen them alter flavour text due to (as far as we know) the lockdown.

 

The bit I'm not sure about is having just 2 contact missions out of the dozens upon dozens of contact missions, be some kind of prologue to an update. Maybe themed around the kind of work lore-wise that'll be involved. Like say for instance, if a Cop's update was coming and had a Casino style storyline where we basically act as a hired gun for a crooked cop doing police themed work, (while mpersonating a police officer?) all to find out exactly what he knows about the LS underworld and remove him from the picture and save our own ass in the process, and we can still do police work once the story is finished, like the Casino Work phone calls;

 

Mission 1 we need to rescue a bunch of the CGF og's (maybe even Vernon?) who're all being simultaneously arrested across LS in an obviously coordinated move.

Mission 2; we need to take out the CGF snitch whose probably an opportunistic disloyal shot-caller who turned over the og's to try and get ahead in the gang and work alongside the LSPD, kinda like Big Smoke.

Chainsaw would be sick. Though it probably won't happen because they would need to add more animations. The katana could just use the bat animations.

What about the Minigun animations though?

 

It literally has a chainsaw grip and handle, which means it could reuse the animations for moving while carrying it, it would only require new animations for attacking instead.

I'd be willing to pay the cost for not gaining a wanted level.

Buy upgrades
-Uniformed Police
-Uniformed Patrol
-Detective w/ Marked Vehicle
-Detective w/ Unmarked Vehicle
-NOOSE
-FIB

or you'd have to choose between FIB or NOOSE? 

If a FIB you get access to FIB vehicles & gear... If a NOOSE you get access to all NOOSE gear & vehicles.

If you could only pick 1, this would make for an interesting concept as people would be torn between the two..

Maybe with FIB they could add the ability to turn any non super or special vehicle into an FIB vehicle... i/e, FIB Coquette Blackfin, FIB Blista Compact... Maybe there could be some more detective or undercover based new to the update exclusive gear that could enhance a more covert style of play.

They could also open up some of the law enforcement building interiors.

With NOOSE, you could customize your NOOSE gear and maybe gain new to the update exclusive gear aside from the standard NOOSE gear, this could ehance more overall combat & CQB. Maybe you could also be capable of having a small squad of NOOSE operators travel with you under your command. You could send a NOOSE team to raid a player's business and even attempt to arrest the player for potential bonuses.






Maybe a Merryweather or Marine option...

Marines could have exclusive gear... like a light plate carrier(JPC, TacTec, RAL, Scarab, etc)... some more amphibious based gear, maybe you could have a SARC follow you around and watch your back, capable of reviving you from death whilst also being an elite operator. You could have unlockable Sniper qualifications that could let you fire a sniper rifle and not automatically be ambushed by hundreds of NPCs because even though it's midnight and you're literally in a bush and far away and you hit a guy on a roof who nobody could see, they all still know exactly where you're at and that you're a hostile.   Maybe you could be off radar while in water & while on a beach within proximity to the water. Even on a boat would be off radar.. Boats wouldn't be capable of being locked on to. Your character could gain enhanced hand to hand combat capability. Your character's overall weapons handling & ability would be enhanced. and some more things..

Merryweather could have you with exclusive merryweather gear. You could have a Buzzard Attack Chopper follow you around everywhere you go as overwatch. If anything became hostile, they'd start attacking it, whether NPC or player. When using a boat, you'll have a 4-Dinghy Merryweather escort using their 2 man dinghy, each of the 4 Dinghy will have a highly efficient passenger and neither your boat or their Dinghy can be locked on to. You could send Merryweather assault teams to raid other player's businesses, unlike with NOOSE raids, you can actually take their product to your warehouse and sell it yourself along with a Merryweather Team so that you make all the money. You could have a pistol equipped Merryweather bodyguard that follows you around at all times, like one from the Free option at the Facility.



But you could only pick 1. If you go back and pick another you lose everything from the other choice. You can stay as your choice 24/7 with increased daily expenses yet no danger to your businesses.

If we are given the option to be law enforcement, I hope they come up with a good explanation for our characters' motivations in doing so. Also a good explanation for how the police would allow us to, given our extensive criminal backgrounds.

If you are referring to the conclusion of Doomsday Heist, its not so much that we are with the government, but more that as thanks for our service, they are turning a blind eye to what they know about us. We were working with them, not for them.

Not good enough of an explanation imo. It explains it for the police, but what would be in it for us? I don't mean us as the player, because the answer to that would obviously be that it would be fun. But for our characters, what would they gain from doing the police's work for them?

Is the general consensus that the June/July update will be Cops and Crooks? 
 

Or is there another possible update theme?

You might be overthinking it a tad.

 

As you already concede, it explains it for the police, and it would be fun for the player. The police would be just another type of faction within the game to be associated with, no doubt with its own set of missions, business opportunities and other linked activities and content.

What if we could do stakeouts on other players? Say we buy a speedo or a moonbeam or something and it looks like a normal NPC van from the outside but has a console in the back that lets us look through outside cameras. We could snap pictures of other players with illegal weapons or contraband, then do a full-fledged arrest. Put out an APB, set their wanted level, other players on your "patrol" could lay spike strips or ram him off the road, set their status to kill or capture, then move in with the tazers/service pistol. After the arrest you can confiscate whatever contraband they had (CEO crates, MC stock etc.) and fence it for yourself.

 

Or maybe we could straight up replace the cops during these missions. Instead of NPCs responding to stolen Import Export Vehicles or Crate sales or resupply missions, we have to break out the police helis and the cruisers and stop them ourselves.

 

I don't expect any of this to happen btw, just theorizing.

I hope it's not pvp based. If it's indeed something related to cops and crooks, update would have potential if it's more PVE focused and solo friendly. Just look how good AH and Casino heist were because of that solo friendly focus. Granted you need at least 1 more player to complete diamond casino heist, you can at least complete all of the preps solo.

So introducing something similar to roles from red dead online would be the best way to do this. But question is how would R* implement it even if the wanted, because of game engine.

With roles player would have option to experience benefits and specific upgrades of both cops and crooks factions and ranks withing both roles. Maybe it wouldn't make sense to work for both in gta online universe, but online characters are already kinda ''double agents'' when it comes to casino, still working as fixers in casino jobs and at same time doing preps to rob it. All of this is again more of my wishful thinking than something that R* would implement at this stage of the 7 year old game. Most likely, it will either be advanced adversary pvp focused mode or already tried and proved business or even heist update.
