A new update is live in GTA Online, adding a new vehicle to the Casino Podium, plus more cash and RP bonuses, as well as discounts on some desirable items.

This update follows the pattern we’ve seen in the past few months, with the Lucky Wheel podium vehicle replaced, plus more ways to earn extra cash, and save some too.


Last week, the Tempesta was up for grabs on the Podium, one of the more valuable vehicles that Rockstar has given players the chance to win for free. This week, it’s the turn of the Deluxo.

Rockstar have now released full patch notes for the update, confirming the details provided earlier by reliable leaker Tez2. Here’s everything in the new update.


GTA Online April 2 update

New Podium Vehicle: Deluxo

Rockstar Games
The Deluxo is inspired by the DeLorean.

The Deluxo is far from the best looking car in GTA Online, but it has some iconic roots. It’s based on the DeLorean DMC-12, made famous in the Back to Future movies.

It’s a remarkably expensive vehicle given its looks, and there’s one obvious reason for that – it can fly. Like something straight out of Back to the Future, “At the click of a button, you will soar over trees, mountains, sharks, the slack-jawed competition, and anything else you choose.”

GTA$ and RP Bonuses

Playing a variety of modes this week will earn you both 3x and 2x GTA$ and RP.


3x GTA$ & RP

  • Air Force Zero versus mode
  • Top Fun versus mode
  • Stockpile Adversary mode

2x GTA$ & RP

  • Airfreight Cargo

You can also secure yourself a whopping $1,000,000 GTA$, 1000 RP and the “J Lager” Beer Hat by completing 10 daily challenges over the next seven days (until April 16).

Rockstar Games

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.
