Rockstar 'very sorry' for GTA Online co-op heists delay

Content 'taking more time to create than originally anticipated', misses spring release window

Rockstar has apologized to GTA V players for failing to release the GTA Online co-op heists update within its originally planned release window.

In an update in April, the developer announced plans to add co-op Heists to Grand Theft Auto Online's range of missions this spring. With summer officially starting in a matter of days, the update is yet to materialize.


Rockstar addressed fan questioning in a new statement on Wednesday. "We know many fans have been eagerly awaiting the release of the Online Heists that we had planned to release for you this spring, and they are taking more time to create than originally anticipated," the firm admitted.

"We are very sorry for the delay, and are working hard to bring them to you as soon as we can. Please know that we are focused as always on making the best possible content for you to play and we are thankful to all of you for your patience, understanding and support.

"Stay tuned for more information on that as well as lots of other ongoing content updates, enhancements and additions to the world of GTA Online that are on the way."

This comes after Rockstar released its latest GTA Online update, 'I'm not a hipster', on Tuesday, June 17. The new content includes retro print t-shirts, skinny jeans, a variety of fresh hairstyles, tattoos and animal masks, in addition to gameplay tweaks. It also packs seven new vehicles and 12 new Jobs and Gang Attacks.
