Rockstar Games have rolled out another weekly update in GTA Online, giving players the chance to pick up a free Nagasaki Shotaro, huge GTA cash boosts and more. 

Last week, we saw a number of changes to the game, with the Nagasaki Stryder being made available at Legendary Motorsport. The Överflöd Imorgon could even be won for free with just one Lucky Wheel spin, for those with enough good fortune.

The fun didn’t stop on March 12, however; the game’s developers decided to push out another update, including not just a new motorcycle reward, but a few other interesting changes, as well. There’s a lot to unpack, so let’s get right to it.


GTA Online update: What’s changed?

Nagasaki Shotaro

A brand new vehicle has been added to the GTA Diamond Casino podium. Mixing it up with something different, Rockstar have added a new motorcycle to the rewards system, and a flashy one at that – the Nagasaki Shotaro.

The vehicle is worth a whopping $2,225,000 if you were to buy it from Legendary Motorsport. However, as regular players will know by now, they each get one spin of the Lucky Wheel each day they play GTA Online with a chance to win it. If the spin lands on the podium vehicle prize, you could be driving away in one of these bad boys for absolutely nothing.

It’s going to be available at the Casino until March 18, so hurry up and get as many spins in as possible until the window of opportunity slams shut.

Speaking of bikes, those playing Deadline between March 12-18 are in for some serious payouts. In the patch notes, Rockstar state: “Get 3X GTA$ and RP when playing Deadline this week. Hop on the back of a Nagasaki Shotaro and cut your foes off with a luminous and destructive beam of light, blowing them to smithereens.”

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.
