Grand Theft Auto 5 Online Heists (Finally) Revealed

Ryan McCaffrey at IGN writes - "To say we've waited a long time for multiplayer Heists to get added into Grand Theft Auto Online would be the understatement of the year. The bad news is that we still don't have a concrete date for when it's finally happening. The good news, however, is that we do now have a killer trailer showing them off as well as an interview with GTA Online producer and lead mission designer Imran Sarwa"

Thank God! It's about time Rockstar! Can't wait! :D

Early 2015. . .

So officially

"years in the making"

Also they were revealed back in 2013, not now. And, again, they are using the "soon" card. This is getting so predictable...

On the other hand, the heists do sound awesome. Screw Rockstar. After this rereveal you're making it hard not to buy this rerelease...

Heists are going to be SOOO amazing on XBOX ONE. I love the trailer and it looks like the Heists are going to be very fun with friends :)

so this trailer show cops and robbers, RPGs, Attack Helicopters, heavy weapons, and everyone is cool with it, but when Hardline had the same things, nerds were whining about "overmilitarization of the police" and asking "why are heavy weapons in a cops and robbers game??" Gamer nerds are so fickle with their selective haterism..

FriedGoat3363d ago

Hardline glorifies the Police, you play as the cops in the single player.

GTA does not.

Not that I care either way, why are you even bringing up this irrelevant drivel?

I remember when they were gonna be released in:

1) Late 2013
2) Early 2014
3) Spring 2014
4) December 23rd 2014
5) Early 2015

I am excited that they should be getting close, but this release date has been pushed back FAR TOO MANY TIMES!!! And all so they 'could put the final touches to it' (read: Sell enough shark cards to justify it, whilst giving people another costume they didn't even want...)

i hope they make us pay for it I have OCD i like to be fked fully not half way.

ExtoVert3363d ago

At the beginning of the trailer rockstar addresses all the fans that wanted heist..."I know you've been complaining"..."but you weren't ready"
I just find it funny i couldn't stop laughing when i saw that, but seriously its about time. Cant wait.

@ExtoVert- I caught that right away too. Funny as hell.

Online heists might ruin GTA Online in some ways, if you make $100,000s or millions in a heist then GTA Online just wont be as fun, I like grinding out to have to make a million.

I just think the contact missions will be useless if i can go do a heist and make 20x as much as i would off of one contact mission.

SuperBlur3363d ago

what are you talking about , the heist will take just as much preparation as single player's one. the payout better be good or we'll have to go back to grinding a small job or 2 that gives a relatively greater reward in the long run.

nowitzki20043362d ago


But if you take 5 mil in one take then whats the point of doing anything but heists online.

Im just hoping its not too easy to make money becase i really like the way it is now. you have to work for everything.

Hmmm...might have to fire GTA V up again. This is what I bought it for in the first place.
