Grand Theft Auto Online players have been waiting for over six months for a major update to the game. With leaks claiming that some ideas are in the works, we take a look at what might be coming next.

GTA Online has been awash with major updates in the last few years – giving players more to do around Los Santos. We’ve seen businesses added through Import/Export, Gunrunning, and Nightclubs – while players have also had the chance to gamble at, and ultimately steal from, the Diamond Casino. 

The Casino heist update was the last major change to GTA Online, coming all the way back on December 12, 2019. With the summer upon us, players have been hoping to see more from Rockstar. So, let’s see what could be in store next.

Updates have added plenty of things to do in GTA Online.

Summer update leak

With GTA Online, you honestly never know what’s going to come next – most of the time.

One of the most accurate leakers for Rockstar titles, however, has revealed that the next major update will land on August 11, and that info comes from TezFunz2.

Following the game’s July 30 update, they posted: “Worth noting the new event is up for two weeks, ending on Tuesday, August 11th. That’s likely when we shall receive the new update.”

We might not know what’s going to feature in the patch just yet, but some ideas have been thrown about in the form of leaks and official announcements of late. Let’s take a look through some of those.

Might as well start with the biggest piece of news right off the bat, and that’s Rockstar Games revealing a fresh heist in an all-new location is coming soon.

On July 24, just six days before TezFunz2’s leak, the game developers confirmed the next big job and a summer update as well. They said in an official statement: “”A summer update to GTA Online is also on the way, offering up a fun mix of diverse new content from the game’s massive array of experiences to enjoy.

“Later this year players can expect more big updates for both games, including some exciting new extensions and augmentations to an existing role in Red Dead Online, and the biggest ever update for GTA Online, featuring our latest take on Heists in an entirely new location.”

Nothing has been set in terms of a release date for these just yet. That said, the leak suggests a shakeup is just around the corner.

Will GTA Online’s next update include Cops N Crooks?

The most recent leaks for GTA’s next major update have claimed that the popular Cops N Crooks mode would be making its return. These claims came from Reddit user LoremIpsumLoremIpsu, who added that Rockstar insiders had apparently backed up their information.

According to the claims, Cops N Crooks would have well released by now – or at least been announced – so it’s unknown whether or not Rockstar is actually planning to bring the GTA IV game mode back.

As of now, it is pretty much just a waiting game until the iconic developers decide to reveal what they’re doing. Summer looks set to be a good one for GTA Online players, and thankfully now we know they won’t need to wait until next-gen for a shakeup. 

When they do decide to make further announcements, or a leak makes it way to the surface, we’ll be sure to update this post.


Terrible GTA Online bug makes it impossible to use bunkers

GTA Online players are still having their bunker business missions ruined thanks to a bug that won’t let them enter their not-so-secret base. 

For the longest time, the best way to make money in Grand Theft Auto Online came through jobs and heists. Players would have to grind them out, over and over again, to be able to stack up cash.

Eventually, Rockstar Games brought businesses into the fold – allowing players to make money passively, before having to complete one delivery job at the end for an absolutely huge sum of money. 

The most lucrative of these jobs center around bunkers and the Gunrunning business, where, as the name suggests, you become an arms dealer. However, some players are struggling to run their businesses properly.

Owning a bunker will unlock GTA Online’s Gunrunning business options.

The problem isn’t an overly complicated one, instead, it’s just simple. Players can’t access the bunkers. No matter if they’re on foot or in a car, the yellow circle that you usually use to enter just won’t do anything. 

What that means is, players like Reddit user TheAlphamale82, are left to drive around in circles hoping that something might change. But, sadly, it doesn’t and you end up locked outside the bunker unless you want to restart the game.

However, not even a restart is a magic cure, as the problem can still persist in other lobbies. It really is a peculiar problem – and it is one that is affecting different players. 

[Bug/glitch] R* please fix this, this is getting really annoying. I am unable to resupply my bunker by stealing supplies and before this was recorded someone was having the same problem from GTAV

Others like Aberfergie and r3d-v3n0m noted that they have run into the issue as well, and that they’ve flagged a ticket with Rockstar Support. However, while the devs have supposedly said they’ll work on it, they haven’t found a fix. 

The winter update, which will bring the Cayo Perico heist to GTA Online is right around the corner, and that update should address some issues. Hopefully, the bunker problem is one of them.
