GTA V Online Heists Delayed
My day just got a little darker, GTA V is in my top three of best games I have ever played. The online is a sandbox for hilarity, it is missing one thing though the long awaited and long promised Heists. Good news co-op heists for GTA Online won’t be released by the end of the spring as planned. They had this to say for themselves.
“For those of you asking about other upcoming GTA Online updates, we have lots more in store coming your way soon, we know many fans have been eagerly awaiting the release of the Online Heists that we had planned to release for you this spring, and they are taking more time to create than originally anticipated.”
“We are very sorry for the delay, and are working hard to bring them to you as soon as we can. Please know that we are focused as always on making the best possible content for you to play and we are thankful to all of you for your patience, understanding and support. Stay tuned for more information on that as well as lots of other ongoing content updates, enhancements and additions to the world of GTA Online that are on the way.”
It seems like we have been waiting for co-op heists forever now, probably because developers have been talking about co-op heists since last year. It’s by far the most desirable feature on the way for GTA Online. The elaborate heists of GTA 5’s campaign were the best part of the single-player experience, and it seems ludicrous that their main priority wouldn’t be the multiplayer equivalent. Maybe take it easy on the hipster expansions and focus on the important stuff.
It’s a catch 22 situation for Rockstar at this point because I really want heists and I’m annoyed it’s delayed, which means I’m going to expect it to blow my mind when it is released. So they could have released it on time and risked outcry if it was unpolished or face the outcry and raised expectations of a delay.
The “I’m Not A Hipster” Update, which launched on Xbox 360 and PS3 yesterday, is similar to previous content packs. It provides new weapons, vehicles, wardrobe options and missions for the game. All of the new additions have a hipster theme, the only benefit I can see for this is that it will give me a new reason to grief people. Maybe that’ll be enough to keep me entertained until heists…
