In a recent post on the Newswire, however indirectly, Rockstar has announced the release date of the second part of the Ill-Gotten Gains DLC.
They’ve officially announced that the Welcome To Los Santos soundtrack collection, available only on PC until now, will be coming to the four consoles next month as a part of Ill-Gotten Gains Part Two. The competition ends on the 30th of June, which is a Tuesday, so one would think Rockstar might release the DLC on that day, since they pretty much always release DLC on Tuesdays. However, the post says next week, so it’s safe to assume that the DLC itself will launch on the 7th of July, which is the next Tuesday after the 30th.
This information leads us to believe that rumors that the Independence Day DLC and Ill-Gotten Gains Part II is one and the same were untrue, and that we will be getting an Independence Day themed content pack earlier, possibly next Thursday. While it’s true that typically Rockstar releases DLC packs on Tuesdays, there have been, albeit rare, examples of content updates launching on Thursdays, so this possibility is plausible.
So far the content of Ill-Gotten Gains Part II remains largely a mystery. There have been rumors of all kinds of upcoming content for GTA Online circulating these past days. How much of these are true, and how many of these upcoming features will be a contained in Ill-Gotten Gains Part II is unknown. Knowing that the Casino should be opening in a few days rules that out, despite it fitting with the theme of the Ill-Gotten Gains DLC. Leaked info about two new online heists has also been publicized recently, but there was no info on the possible release dates. What little we do know is that the Knuckleduster and the Marksman Pistol weapons will be part of the DLC.
What do you think Ill-Gotten Gains Part 2 will add to the game?
