Grand Theft Auto V may have been released over three years ago, but its expansive multiplayer universe is as popular as ever. According to information posted by user Softsecret on the GTA5 forums, fans of Grand Theft Auto Online may be in for a huge expansion which would add MMO-like features to their multiplayer experience.
While rumors such as these should always be viewed with skepticism, it is notable that Softsecret has posted to the forums only three times, with each post containing “predictions” about future Grand Theft Auto V developments which have turned out to be suspiciously accurate. Whether Softsecret is an insider at Rockstar, a brilliant guesser, or Ms. Cleo incarnate remains to be seen.
Regardless of where Softsecret received his information, there’s no question that it is alarmingly specific. Here is the rundown of every update rumored for GTA Online between now and 2020:
**Biker DLC: (Bikes, clothes, free roam missions) purchase clubhouse to activate biker free roam missions
Law and order DLC (Police free roam and vehicles) Purchase police vehicles to activate free roam police missions
The Luxury Living DLC (Mansions & Pets) Purchase Mansion to purchase exotic pets (Mansion grounds only)
The Blaine County and Paleto DLC (Animals in free roam) Animals online syncing workaround via VIP mission type activation
(Purchase hunting license and equipment to activate hunting objectives) (Purchase New warehouses and properties)
North Yankton and Liberty City (Online Map expansion) $£ Paid DLC 1 2017 sept (Not Yet Complete)
San Fierro and Las ventures (Online Map expansion) $£ Paid DLC 2 2018 oct Not Yet Complete
Vice City…. Not until GTA VI, some time around 2020 At the VERY earliest!
San Fierro and Las Ventures were built alongside Los santos way back in the early development stages of GTAV, Scrapped on PS3/Xbox for obvious reasons!! After more then 3 years of re building for PS4/XBO/PC, Both are still being worked on with a release target of October 2018!
Single player DLC has been replaced with Online Map expansion model! Mainly due to the unforeseen success of micro transactions and GTA online in general!
Liberty City will be released September 2017.. The DLC will include:
– A Open ticket (for city slickers) to Liberty City!
– A Open ticket (for Snow Blowers) to North Yankton!
– EXCLUSIVE VIP Membership (for High rollers) which grants Exclusive access to THE CASINO in Los Santos!
– Pre Order Bonus of 1 million GTA Casino chips for pre order!!
Micro transactions can NOT buy GTA CASINO CHIPS!
Liberty City, North Yankton and the Los Santos Casino scheduled together to keep player migration relatively balanced!!
Liberty City will enable you to trade on the stock market, once a Office has been Purchased! Similar to the current crate set up!
Both DLC’s will be priced equivalent to a full game!!
Softsecret concludes these predictions with some potentially revealing words, mentioning that similar predictions back in a 2013 post have come to fruition and implying that Rockstar has taken notice:
Most if not everything mentioned in that 2013 post has been implemented or reworked into the current GTA Online we have today, from the old mission set up format, to individual heist roles, to the current free mode events!
With the Next four Updates to come, GTA Online will have utilised most if not all the work that went into GTAV such as animals, police vehicles, Stock Market, Blaine County etc..
Can’t say much more, there on to me….. Speculating can get you in to a lot trouble.. lol
Whether or not you believe these rumors, there is no question that Softsecret’s predictions have been shown to be startlingly accurate in the past. What do you think about these rumors? Let us know in the comments!
