Rockstar Games have finally lifted the veil of mystery surrounding the highly anticipated Heists update for Grand Theft Auto Online with a brand new trailer and an official release window. Grand Theft Auto Online players have been waiting for the online multiplayer Heists update since the original release on the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 yet a year later, they’re still waiting.
Rumors surfaced earlier this week after a group found various bits of code hidden within the game client, leading some to believe that the Heists update will arrive before Christmas. Today’s press release however debunks those rumors as Rockstar Games confirm that the 4 player Heists update for GTA Online will not arrive until “early 2015”.
Further rumors indicate that players can expect an exciting dose of new content before Christmas including festive themed missions, clothing, items and rewards. Rockstar Games originally stated that GTA Online Heists will arrive with the first substantial update following the release on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, however that no longer appears to be the case.
Heists will arrive sometime in early 2015 and if the trailer is anything to go by, they’re going to be epic:
