Exciting times are ahead for Grand Theft Auto players as Rockstar Games has rolled out an update for GTA V. The Online update adds a brand new in-game event, another car on the Diamond Casino podium, and more rewards for Twitch Prime members. 

The game’s developers have been doing an excellent job of keeping their current game fresh in the midst of so many rumors surrounding new projects, such as Bully 2 and GTA 6, and weekly content updates have been a big part of that.

It might come as a surprise to many members of the game’s online community to see that a pickup truck is actually the headline vehicle for this week, but don’t let that put you off. There’s a new car up for grabs on the Lucky Wheel, a new event has kicked off with double rewards and more.

Let’s take a look at everything that’s been added to GTA Online this week.

GTA Online update (Feb 6) – What’s changed?

Declasse Drift Yosemite

Here’s what the Declasse Drift Yosemite looks like in GTA Online.

We might as well get this one out of the way right off the bat, as a new pickup truck called the Declasse Drift Yosemite has been added to GTA Online.

While it might not wow you with its incredible looks like supercars have in recent times, this addition is an expensive one – especially if you would like to add it to your own garage. It’s being sold for $1.3 million at Southern San Andreas Super Autos.


Furia arrives on the podium

Grotti’s Furia was added to the GTA Casino podium in this update.

You can grab a very expensive car for absolutely nothing, however, with just one spin of the Lucky Wheel if you’re, well, lucky enough.

The Furia, which appears to be inspired by one of Ferrari’s sporty vehicles, is being sold for $2,740,000 at Legendary Motorsport. But if you manage to land on the podium prize when spinning the Lucky Wheel, you will pick it up completely free of charge.

Each GTA Online player can spin the wheel once per game by visiting the Diamond Casino and Resort.

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.
