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.

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.

GreekGodx banned again from NoPixel GTA RP server amid toxicity drama

One of the more infamous figures in NoPixel’s GTA RP server, GreekGodx, has been banned for a second time due to drama surrounding repeated rule-breaking toxicity.

The “Tay Tay Tyrone” saga may be over, as GreekGodx’s now-notorious Grand Theft Auto roleplay character has been banned from the NoPixel 3.0 server. In a clip shared to Reddit, players revealed that Tay Tay would probably not be returning to “the city,” which Greek elaborated on in detail during his own stream.

As it stands, the rationale behind this ban is unclear. What is known is that Greek and the server’s admins discussed the situation and subsequently agreed upon cutting off his involvement for the time being.

This follows numerous incidents in which he was found to violate the server’s rules by repeatedly making other players uncomfortable, despite them asking him to stop. In the most notable example, he was originally banned for constantly calling other characters “thick,” despite complaints.

That original ban was subject to various reactions, including summit1g’s, who found that the appliance of behavioral rules to the server was a tricky situation. He noted some inherent difficulties, namely, ensuring that such rules are applied to everyone and not just high-profile streamers.

As for the new ban, it’s not precisely clear what prompted it — but fans on Reddit seem to believe that it’s due to a general culture clash between Greek’s expectations of the server and NoPixel’s community goals.

During his own February 23 Twitch stream, Greek explored the issue in some more detail: “They’ve put me on ‘cooldown,’ because of the drama and shit. So even if I want to play, I can’t because I agreed on a cooldown.”

So he is banned from the server, but the decision appears to have been amicably settled on and therefore temporary. As for the differences in mindset, he also shared some details on why he feels the server is at odds with his content. 

Noting that the behavioral rules make much of the streamed content simply feel like a “Discord call,” Greek explained his wishes for NoPixel’s RP: “I get it: rules are rules. But people need to be a little bit more wild…a little bit more action … It needs to be a little more reckless … a little bit more crazy, to make it a little bit more exciting.”
