Rockstar Games have finally revealed official details on the next GTA Online heist, which we now know will be called Cayo Perico – a new map expansion. 

The game’s developers surprised the world on November 19 with a first look teaser trailer, and the following day confirmed the name of the next mission and its release date.

It’s expected to be rolled out on December 15, according to Rockstar.

A new trailer dropped for the mega update as well, posted to the developer’s official YouTube channel.

That’s not all, either. In an official blog post they confirmed a whole host of new details, found below.


It says: “Prepare to infiltrate the remote island compound of the world’s most notorious drug dealer in Grand Theft Auto Online’s biggest, most daring, and action-packed addition yet: The Cayo Perico Heist.

“It’s up to you to find a way to breach Cayo Perico, one of the most secure private islands in the entire world, evade or neutralize the heavily armed security forces stationed there, and escape with valuable evidence along with as much art, gold and drug money as you can carry.

“Choose your tools. Choose your approach. Choose your crew – or even go it entirely alone. Just make it back to Los Santos in one piece.

Here’s one shot of the new location.

“The Cayo Perico Heist is the biggest GTA Online adventure ever, introducing an all-new exotic Heist location, with a brand-new approach to Heist design that features the ability to play everything solo or with up to three other players. Plus you can acquire new vehicles and tactical weapons, experience new social spaces to dance and party in with your friends, and new world-class guest DJs, and listen to new radio stations with over 100 new songs. Oh, and a very large, very versatile, and very heavily armed submarine HQ with plenty of other surprises.”

With the game’s next content refresh on the horizon, it remains to be seen how we’ll get to this new mystery location. Though clearly, the information we have points towards the use of a submarine – not to mention one flashing across our screens in the trailer.


The GTA Online Cayo Perico heist arrives on December 15.
