Rockstar Games is adding a shed load of content with the GTA Online Summer Update and we’ve got everything you need to know about it. 

The game developers have been building up the hype for the latest Summer Update in GTA Online for quite some time now. New heists have been mentioned, fresh vehicles, and a ton of never-before-seen missions were expected. Rockstar previously confirmed a few of these things with an announcement full of hints.


Now, way before official patch notes have been revealed, Grand Theftt Auto’s most prominent leaker has beat them to the punch. TezFunz2, who reveals almost everything before it happens in-game, has also spilled the beans on the next content update.

And it’s a big one.


GTA Online Summer Special update patch notes

Summer Update size

The update will reportedly be around 2GB for Xbox One, PlayStation 5, and PC players.

There’s a lot packed into the patch as well, so let’s run through the patch notes we know about so far.

New Super Yacht co-op missions

Yacht in GTA
Rockstar Games
If you own a Super Yacht in GTA Online, you’re going to have a great summer.

An all-new set of missions will be available, but only if you own a Galaxy Super Yacht. The missions will launch from your floating apartment complex and can be done solo or with up to three friends.


Everything from deep-sea diving to “high-speed hijinks on the high seas” has been teased by Rockstar, and we can’t wait to jump in and see what they’re all about.

Business Battles & Adversary Modes

Rockstar Games
A new crop of Adversary Modes will be available at the Diamond Casino with the Summer Update.

Several new Business Battles are being added as well, offering some serious rewards in “surprising places.” Exactly what is being added remains to be seen, but at least we’ll have a way to make some money and save up for a Super Yacht of our own now.

There will also be a jackpot of new Adversary Modes for players to face off against one another in at Diamond Casino following the update, in case you need a break from all the new missions.


New Vehicles & Open Wheel races

Rides for Benny to customize, off-roaders, tunable sports cars, and a pair of new Open Wheel models like in the image above were all previously confirmed. Now, following several leaks, we know that there will be 15 new cars headed to the game.

These include the following:

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.

Franklin from GTA V

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.
