Nope, that wasn’t pigs flying. That’s Rockstar Games confirming that we’ll finally be receiving those heist missions that they promised us when Grand Theft Auto Online originally launched back in October 2013. The online heist missions will become available on PS3, PS4, Xbox 360, and Xbox One when the first GTA Online update hits for the remastered versions. No word on exactly when that may be, but anything less than the year and change that we’ve already been waiting would be better. Rockstar has been taking their time with the highly anticipated feature so that the launch will be perfect, and far less shaky than when Grand Theft Auto Online originally dropped.
We’re just a week away from the remastered release of Grand Theft Auto V, which is bringing the incredible world of Los Santos to next-gen consoles with polished and upscaled visuals, as well as a sweet Fallout/Skyrim-like first-person mode. Of course, if you forgot some of the things you can do on Grand Theft Auto Online, here’s a list of fun activities for you and your friends to partake in while ripping and running through the hills of Vinewood and beyond.
