Rockstar Games says it's finally bringing the highly anticipated online heists to Grand Theft Auto 5's multiplayer mode, Grand Theft Auto Online, in an upcoming update that will hit all four consoles.
The addition of online heists is promised in an update for GTA Online scheduled to arrive after the re-release of the game on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. Those versions are coming on Nov. 18. Rockstar doesn't precisely say when the online heists update is coming to GTA 5, but promises to provide details "very soon."
Rockstar originally planned to release the online version of GTA 5's heists earlier this year, but said it needed more time to develop the feature.
"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. We are very sorry for the delay, and are working hard to bring them to you as soon as we can," Rockstar said in June.
In addition to the update on when we can expect GTA Online's heists, Rockstar released some big numbers for GTA 5's online mode. The company says GTA Online has been played by more than 33.8 million people over the past year for more than 2.3 billion collective hours. More details are available at the Rockstar Games website.
Grand Theft Auto 5 is coming to PS4 and Xbox One next week, and will bring with it a new first-person view mode. The Windows PC version launches in January. For a look at how the new versions of the game compare to last year's PS3 and Xbox 360 versions, check out the video below.
