Rockstar Games has announced a new GTA Online update called The Contract, bringing back Dr. Dre with a new business venture for players to get involved in.
The GTA community has been busy in the second half of 2021, following the release of the GTA Trilogy: Definitive Edition.
Circling back to GTA Online, players will have a load of new activities to engage with soon enough, as a new patch – furst codenamed the “Fixers update” – was touted to drop. Days later, Rockstar confirmed it was coming and it’s called The Contract.
So, let’s take a look at everything we know so far.
When is GTA Online The Contract coming out?
Rockstar Games has confirmed that The Contract update will roll out on December 15, 2021.
This news comes after a major leak from the ever-reliable Tez2.

GTA Online The Contract update: Early patch notes
Dr. Dre is coming back
Popular rapper Dr. Dre is coming back as part of the GTA Online Contract update, which many fans might have expected.
After all, his in-game character had a big part to play in the Cayo Perico heist of early 2021 and the record producer has been dropping hints about a return ever since. It’s previously been reported that he would create new music for GTA, too, as confirmed by Snoop Dogg.
The role he will have this time, however, is unknown.
New weapons, vehicles & property
The following will be added with the Contract update:
- Compact EMP Launcher – weapon
- Enus Jubilee – car
- The Agency, F. Clinton and Partner – property
Lamar Davis & Franklin return
The comeback of two popular characters, Lamar Davis and Franklin, have been confirmed.

A new business is expected to feature in the GTA Online Fixers update, according to Tez2’s sources, which will likely include new contracts.
#GTAOnline next update is codenamed Fixers, as per sources.
The codename suggests the return of more Tuner-alike Contracts. Since Dr.Dre is involved, the legit business, Rockstar hinted at, is likely music-centered and expandable with new Contracts.
