Intended to release earlier this spring, the launch of online heist missions for Grand Theft Auto V was delayed so that Rockstar Games could have more time to prepare the new multiplayer content. The upcoming addition of large-scale robberies to GTA Online has been described by the developers as co-op missions in the past. However, it now looks like the new feature might have more in common with team-based competitive matches rather than an actual co-op mode according to a rumored leak.
If the details turn out to be true, then those that were expecting online heists to be purely cooperative-based mission content may be disappointed. Rather than only working alongside friends, the leak describes the heists of GTA Online to be an objective-based competitive game mode instead.
