Twitter user, TezFunz2, has spotted that the current update runs until Tuesday, 11 August.

This is unusual for a GTA Online weekly update, so would suggest that this is when the summer update may be dropping!


Rockstar has not yet provided details surrounding what content we can expect, however, the mention of a ‘fun mix of diverse new content’, certainly sounds exciting.

This update will feature the ‘latest take on Heists in an entirely new location.’

Naturally, this is creating various theories and predictions surrounding where the new location will be.

Speculations range from revisiting old maps in the series, such as Vice City, or San Andreas, or even places within GTA 5 itself like North Yankton.

With the mention of heists we can understandably assume that new heists are likely to feature in the update. Could these be tied in with the new location? With no more clues from Rockstar, we can only speculate for now.

Make sure to check back in with us for all the latest on the GTA Online.

How can they make GTA Online even better?

As with many online games, there are some players who choose to use various exploits to gain an unfair advantage. Thankfully, Rockstar appears to be continuing their action against this in the world of GTA Online.

In the Summer Update announcement post, Rockstar stated – “We are also committed to ensuring that our games are fun for everyone and as safe as possible from modders, cheaters, hackers and those who seek to harass other players. So far this year, we have taken action on hundreds of thousands of players caught violating community rules across both games.”

This could mean we may see new tools coming in the Summer Update to fight these issues, or possibly a new wave of bans.
