Rockstar GamesThe Diamond Casino has breath new life into GTA Online.

New vehicle: Benefactor Krieger

The Benefactor Krieger is the newest vehicle to hit the market in GTA Online as a part of the game’s ‘Krieger Week.’

The supercar, which can be purchased from Legendary Motorsport and has space for two players, will cost a hefty $2,875,000 – but at least you’ll be able to flaunt a Mercedes-AMG One-inspired vehicle around the cities mean streets. 

The Benefactor Krieger immediately becomes one of the most expensive cars in GTA Online.

However, if you fork out for the Benefactor Krieger, you probably won’t want to get it all muddied up and dirty in the game’s newest races.

Rockstar has added the tracks of ‘Mudslide and ‘Troubled Waters’ to the racing series. The addition of these races also coincides with double rewards in both racing and stunt series.

That’s not all for the vehicular additions, though, as the developers have again switched up their Casino podium vehicle.

If you chance your arm on the daily lucky spin wheel, you’ll now have the chance to win a Bravado Gauntlet Classic Muscle Car, which was added to the game back in early August. It may look like the Gauntlet that you know and love, but it packs a bigger punch.

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.
