GTA 5 Online summer update: when is the new GTA Online update coming out? | Games | Entertainment
GTA Online remains one of the most popular multiplayer modes on PS4 and Xbox One consoles, with a new version in development for next-gen consoles.
But while players will have to wait for this release to arrive later in 2021, Rockstar Games are planning to release their next big expansion.
As usual, this will be an online affair, which means the base Grand Theft Auto experience won’t change.
However, while there are no plans to offer any new story content for the best-selling game, things will change in multiplayer.
GTA Online is hugely popular and is one of the reasons Grand Theft Auto V continues to top the best-selling charts in recent years.
All eyes will therefore be on what Rockstar Games has planned for GTA Online on PS4, Xbox One and PC.
WHEN DOES GTA 5 ONLINE SUMMER UPDATE COME OUT?
Rockstar Games has not announced when it will release its new GTA Online summer update, but we have unofficial news.
According to TezFunz on Twitter – a trusted source for GTA news – the GTA Online summer update has a release date set for Thursday, July 22.
For now, Rockstar Games has only revealed plans for its summer expansion, including what will be included.
This includes the fact that this is a new Car Meet event taking place, with the development team telling fans earlier in July:
“GTA Online’s next summer update features the Los Santos Car Meet, the beating heart of auto culture in southern San Andreas. Keep an eye on Newswire for more to come.
If the GTA Online Summer Update releases next week, we can probably expect a new trailer or post in the next few days.
It’s not guaranteed, but Rockstar Games could drop something as early as Thursday, July 15.
This will be when the next Grand Theft Auto Online bonuses and rewards are released and it would be a great time to share the latest information.
However, all of this needs to be taken with a pinch of salt until we hear more from Rockstar Games.
There is no official guarantee that the new GTA Summer expansion will be available to play next week, and Rockstar may choose to share their announcement next week, followed by a longer wait for the patch to be released.
Rockstar recently dropped their new content expansion for Red Dead Online, and they’ve followed these guys along with others in the past.
And if nothing is revealed this week, GTA fans can look forward to a new list of rewards to be announced on July 15th.
Until then, here are the current highlights to look for in Grand Theft Auto Online:
- Seven new Survivors, available now
