GTA Online’s next Heist Challenge looks to be in the works after a secret clue planted by Rockstar Games has been unearthed.

Heists are special missions in GTA 5 that task players with completing a series of stages in order to obtain a grand prize.

Heist Challenges, however, bring the community together to steal an enormous amount over a period of 7 days. For example, in 2020, that amount was $100 billion in-game.

Grand Theft Auto V players started to get excited on October 25, following a post from popular Rockstar leaker Tez2.

While this discovery will certainly spark speculation about the next challenge, Rockstar Games has remained tight-lipped about the whole thing – at least, publicly.

The next weekly update lands on October 27, so all eyes will be on that content refresh for the big announcement. If it doesn’t get announced then, possibly the developers are waiting closer to the Winter update.
