Rockstar has announced that to ease the wait for Grand Theft Auto: Online’s long-awaited Heists, players will be getting a “small Christmas gift” in an effort to “keep you entertained until we are done with them.” As confirmed yesterday, Heists will be with us in early 2015, after a year and a bit of delay.
“Heists were a much bigger challenge to create than we had originally anticipated,” Rockstar explains. “Early versions were simply not good enough and had to be scrapped more than once as we honed in on how we thought they should work. We’re happy to say that the pack we are now finalizing is something we are excited by and eager to release as soon as it is ready.”
Some time is still needed to “fine tune” GTA Online’s Heists, Rockstar adds, but hopefully the Christmas gift should help make the month or two of waiting a little longer. As for what will be coming to GTA Online this Christmas, “we can say that we do have a few seasonal treats in the works for players on all four systems to enjoy this coming holiday season in GTA Online,”.
