Rockstar Games have announced that a new Grand Theft Auto V Online heist is dropping in the game soon, as part of their Summer update for the game. 

The game’s been built on lying, cheating, and stealing since the franchise first started out and that’s why heists have become the phenomenon that they have in recent years. It brings together all of those elements, with huge cash rewards on offer.

Now, after weeks of adding new content to GTA Online in the form of Lucky Wheel rewards and limited time missions, it looks like Rockstar are going to go one step further with their next major update.

A new heist will arrive, in a totally different location.

GTA Online players will soon be able to jump into a new heist, but where will it be?

New GTA V heist coming soon

The game developers made the announcement on July 24, on their website. It included an update on the future of both GTA and Red Dead’s multiplayer modes.

An official statement reads: “A summer update to GTA Online is also on the way, offering up a fun mix of diverse new content from the game’s massive array of experiences to enjoy.

“Later this year players can expect more big updates for both games, including some exciting new extensions and augmentations to an existing role in Red Dead Online, and the biggest ever update for GTA Online, featuring our latest take on Heists in an entirely new location.”

By entirely new location, there’s no way they mean just somewhere on the current map – surely. This next heist could be about to take players to another island, or at least different surroundings, very soon.

The last heist to be added was at the GTA Diamond Casino, and players have been stealing from the location ever since.

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.
