GTA Online bug is completely changing Diamond Heist approaches

GTA Online players have been encountering a strange bug that is changing up their Diamond Heist attempts – altering their entry position and how the robbery plays out. 

After years of waiting, GTA Online fans finally got what they’d been asking for on December 12, access to the Casino in Vinewood. Aside from gambling away with their GTA Cash, players also wanted to take things a step further by being able to loot the casino’s vault.

As a result, the Diamond Heist was launched, letting players go on an Ocean’s Eleven style robbery – complete with different vault contents, robbery disguises, and getaway vehicles. Players can choose whether to go in loud, sneakily, or pull of a con – but the latter is being affected by a bug.

The GTA Diamond Heist can be completed in multiple different ways.

The change in entry point was noted by Reddit user Finnman0907, who showcased a video from their recent Diamond Heist attempt. They rolled up to the Casino as a part of the Bugstars con but managed to set off the guard at the back door.

The gang sort of blew their cover, attacking the security guard and causing their entry to bug out. Though, after a pretty long loading screen, they had been transported elsewhere. Instead of entering the casino through the Staff Lobby, they were dropped where the Gruppe Sachs con would begin – with the armored money truck thrown in for good measure.

After showing off the video, some Redditor’s responded and claimed that the bug had actually helped Finnman0907, as they were able to do the heist through an easier method.

Others noted that the bug has been around for a little while and you will always end up with the Gruppe Sachs robbery. Yet, your cover will be blown once you’ve robbed the contents of the vault.

Whether or not Rockstar will fix it, however, remains to be seen but players won’t complain about an easier heist. It means money at the end of the day.

Grand Theft Auto movie reportedly coming before GTA 6

Reports from sources who correctly revealed both the Resident Evil 4 remake and The Witcher Netflix series before their official announcements, are now claiming that a Grand Theft Auto movie is in development.

Despite no news of another GTA game (expected to be GTA 6), Rockstar is apparently focusing on another medium entirely for the franchise. According to WGTC, the Grand Theft Auto movie is likely to release before the next installment of the game.

It’s been over seven years since GTA V was released, back in September 2013. Red Dead Redemption 2 was Rockstar’s next major project, released in October 2018, and they have been pouring lots of resources into the ever-popular GTA Online.

But, perhaps their next project really is a movie adaptation of the iconic GTA franchise, as these sources have supposedly been on the money before.

A GTA movie would no doubt be a box-office hit.

The report claims that “the project is reportedly in the early stages and will loosely adapt the events of GTA V, presumably bringing us live-action versions of characters Michael, Franklin and Trevor.”

At this point, it’s only possible to speculate about who would play these characters, but potentially the voice actors from the game would step up into the live-action roles.

It’s possible that GTA Online’s success, which continues to add new players and is something of a cash cow for Rockstar and publishers Take Two, means they are in no rush to release the sixth game.

The movie will apparently still focus on the main characters from GTA V.

The movie industry is currently in a downturn, for obvious reasons arising from lockdowns, but if the movie is still in the “early stages”, it may be some way off still. Not to mention, filming is also made more difficult in these uncertain times.

The same can be said for game development also, and with not even a peep out of Rockstar regarding a new GTA game, that seems to be a long way off still too.
