Heists are a huge part of Grand Theft Auto V. The story revolves around multiple heists and in short, they are a blast to play through. The planning that goes into them, the perfect execution and the loot all culminate into a great gaming experience. When we learned that these heists would playable in Grand Theft Auto Online, the gaming community was ecstatic. The problem is, where are they?
Eight months have passed and we have not got the opportunity to team up with a few friends and try our hands and even one heist. My biggest fear is that the heists may have been knowingly held from the gaming community.
As you know, Grand Theft Auto V was announced to hit the PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC later this year at E3 and along with it, Grand Theft Auto Online will also start its journey into the new generation of consoles. With heists taking longer than they expected, it’s a possibility that Rockstar simply decided to hold on to them until the new versions dropped so they could use them as a selling point.
I don’t want this to come off as me bashing Rockstar because I absolutely love the work they do, but it is disappointing that gamers have had to wait this long and still not get to experience the heists.
What I honestly think happened is that amid the launch problems with Grand Theft Auto Online, things were pushed back due to the constant woes that plagued the servers and players’ saves. This push back in scheduling heists were probably just delayed a bit in production and since the launch of the next generation of games was already upon us, they decided to wait until the game released on the PS4, Xbox One and PC.
I for one am excited to get my hands on the new generation version of Grand Theft Auto V. I really enjoyed my time with ti on the PS4 and to see that world in more detail and with more care put into it will be great.
Hopefully the extra time will make things more stable and the launch of GTA Online will be exponentially better than the previous generations’ iteration. The user generation content that I’ve seen in videos from the 360 and PS3 versions have been pretty entertaining so I can’t wait to see what people will do on the PS4 and Xbox One, not to mention the completely off the wall things we’ll get with the modding community plugging away at the PC version.
