After a turbulent week in GTA Online, Rockstar is releasing a new weekly update to refresh the podium vehicle, hand out some big bonuses and discounts, and give away from free rewards just for logging in.

Hopefully, these log-in rewards will go smoother than the last, when players who wanted to get the free GTA$500,000 for logging in April suddenly realized they could get it infinitely.


Then, this same bug seemed to cause a major problem, as players’ properties were being wiped from their game, even for those who hadn’t received the $500,000 bonus at all.

This week, there are three free bonuses just for logging in, although they’re nowhere near as valuable as the $500k gift.


Rockstar have now released the full patch notes, confirming what reliable leaker Tez2 already revealed. Here’s everything in the April 16 GTA Online update.

New Podium vehicle: Pariah

Rockstar Games
Get the Pariah for free with your Lucky Wheel spin.

With your one free Lucky Wheel spin a day, you’ll have the chance to pick up the Ocelot Pariah, which would typically set you back $1.42 million from Legendary Motorsport.

Although it doesn’t have an exact real-life replica, the Pariah is a mix of a Ferrari and an Aston Martin, and is easily one of the best-looking sports cars in the game.

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.
