Don’t Believe the San Andreas 2 Rumors


If you keep up to date on Grand Theft Auto news, you might have just seen something exciting: a press release about a sequel to GTA San Andreas, planned for 2015. It claimed this new game would once again follow CJ in a new story set 7 years after San Andreas, and provided details on some of the features. Well, if you’re excited about the possibility of a San Andreas 2, take a deep breath and step back. It’s probably false.

For one thing, the “press release” claims Rockstar secretly announced this game at PlayStation Experience, which was held in Las Vegas on December 6th and 7th, and showed it to members of the press. Unless this was meant to remain a secret for some reason, we would have most likely heard of it before now, from multiple news sources. That takes us to the second point.

The site responsible for this rumor is Grand Times. The site only has a handful of other news articles, and they cover topics such as Electronic Dance Music based around Al Gore’s speeches and golf matches being used to determine the next president.

In short, Grand Times is not reliable. These articles are either meant as parodies or just intended to draw in traffic–and in the case of the San Andreas 2 article, the plan worked. Over 42,000 people have already shared the “news.”

While there’s a tiny possibility this rumor is true, we’re inclined to doubt it when a site like that is the only one with the information. Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas 2 has not been announced, and unless Rockstar makes such an announcement, the best thing fans can do is spread the word and stop sharing that article.

Rumor: Heist Update Contains 6 Missions, New Vehicles


When Rockstar released the impressive stats for GTA Online, it was accompanied by a promise: the much-anticipated heists would be a part of the first GTA Online update after the PS4 and Xbox One launch. Yesterday, we alerted you to a rumor that both a holiday update and heists would arrive on December 23.

We still don’t know if that’s accurate or not, but this supposed leak has resulted in new details about what the heist DLC will include. The original source of the leak, NillxModz, was banned from PSN shortly after the leak. According to this information, the GTA Online heist update will include 6 heist missions found in 4 locations, as well as 5 Cops and Crooks missions in 4 locations. So far, information has been leaked about six of these:

  • Prison Van Rescue (Cops and Crooks) – capture a news van and use it to rescue an imprisoned gang member, while being chased down by the cops.
  • Weapons Deal (Cops and Crooks) – make a deal with the police to capture a criminal and bring him back in exchange for weapons and money.
  • Hostage Deal (Cops and Crooks) – while NPC gangs attempt to move a hostage, either capture the hostage as a biker gang or rescue him as the police.
  • Country Bank Heist – hold up a bank and get the money from the vault back to your safe house, playing with up to 4 criminals and 16 cops.
  • Ornate Bank Heist – hack into the bank vault and get the money to the designated drop-off location, playing with up to 4 criminals and 16 cops.
  • The final leaked mission tasks you with stealing a special artifact from a military base.

It will also come with a new layout for High-End apartments, 3 new vehicles, 3 new heist-themed outfits, 5 new hairstyles, and 2 new contact lenses. PS4 and Xbox One games will also receive new CCTV features for their apartments and 2 new Crops and Crooks-themed masks.

Heists will be listed on a special new menu screen, and the heist matchmaking features will be implemented. Players can purchase BZ Gas from Ammu-Nation to use during heist missions, and you can revive a fallen Crew member during heists by calling a new phone contact called Jeff. You can also email other members of your Crew about your heist plans, which will make you the leader for that heist. PS4 and Xbox One players will be able to print out the email and keep it in their documents.

The update also includes 34 texture modifications to 4 locations, 4 heist audio files, and unrelated measures to prevent GTA Online cheating.

Without official word from Rockstar, this is still just a rumor… but if it’s fake, it’s an incredibly elaborate hoax, with this much leaked information being reported by multiple sources. We might have a good idea now of what the heist update will contain. Are GTA Online heists really set for next Tuesday, December 23?

Rumor: Heists Arrive December 23


What would be a better Christmas present for GTA Online players than the long-awaited arrival of cooperative heists? It’s been over three weeks since GTA V came out for the PS4 and Xbox One, after which heists were supposed to come soon. They were promised to be included in the first GTA Online update after the remastered version’s launch, and fans have been waiting.

Well, the latest heist rumor points to an early Christmas present, with heists coming on December 23. NillxModz, whose leaks have been accurate in the past, announced a list of features to be included in the GTA Online Holiday Season update. He also said heists would be released at the same time.

If his information is accurate, PS3 and PS4 users will be able to access heists at 5:00 AM Eastern Time, with Xbox 360 and Xbox One users to follow at 10:30 AM. While still a rumor, this is believable. GTA Online has received updates for most other holidays, so a Christmas-themed update isn’t unexpected–and heists are supposed to coincide with the next GTA Online update.

Some players don’t think heists are coming soon, no matter what anyone says. Heists were originally announced for last spring, after all. What do you think? Is December 23 the day fans have been waiting for?

Rockstar Rep: Heists Are Almost Here


Well, it’s been 7 months since Rockstar first said GTA Online heists were on the way, and maybe this time they really are. According to Gamereactor, a Rockstar representative confirmed heists will come “shortly after the launch” of GTA V for the PS4 and Xbox One.

Some people thought the heists were delayed on purpose to coincide with the new-gen releases. As terrible as that sounds, maybe we should hope it’s true. After all, if the delay was deliberate, heists probably will come out soon. Right now, most fans are too jaded by Rockstar’s previous heist promises to give much credence to this claim.

November 18 is when GTA V releases for the PS4 and Xbox One, so perhaps GTA Online will see heists before the end of the month. We’ll keep you updated.

PS4 GTA V Bundle Appears in Europe


GTA V will be released for the PS4 this November, although whether it will be November 18 or earlier is a hot topic for debate right now. Whenever it comes out, it looks as though a PS4 bundle option may be available… at least in Europe.

Like many rumors, this one comes by way of a retail listing. This time it’s Amazon (which adds some credibility), and not just one Amazon site, but three. The Spanish, Italian, and German Amazon sites all list the GTA V PS4 bundle. It’s priced at 449,99 euros, which comes in at 26,99 less than if the console and game were bought separately.

Since a lot of people have yet to make the jump to the new console generation, this is a great opportunity for GTA V fans. We haven’t heard anything official about this bundle, and we have no idea if it will be available in places outside of Europe. Europe has already gotten several exclusive PS4 bundles, so there’s a chance this one won’t reach the US or Australia. Still, we can hope for the best! We’ll keep you updated as we learn more.

Rumor Says GTA V PS4 Will Release November 4


We all know GTA V is coming out for the PS4 and Xbox One on November 18… don’t we? Well, a new rumor suggests that release date is only half right, and that the PS4 version of GTA V will two weeks earlier.

On October 2, GTA V for PS4 was mistakenly opened up for pre-orders on PSN in Europe. This is how we learned about the game’s large size. However, German website GamePlane.de has also since discovered that the PS4’s download queue lists a release date of November 4. Mysterious pre-order bonuses were also listed.

Now, there are a couple of things that make this credible. First, Sony hinted back in June there would be an incentive to buy GTA V for the PS4. Second, a PlayStation Store exclusive pre-order bonus was revealed yesterday. Players who pre-order GTA V from the PlayStation Store will receive an extra $300k for GTA Online–but only if they pre-order by November 3.

Why cut off the special pre-order bonus two weeks ahead of November 18? Combined with this rumor of a November 4 release date, it sounds suspicious. This is still just a rumor, but a very intriguing one. Do you think GTA V will release early on the PS4? If you’re an Xbox One player, will it upset you if this is true?

GTA V Heists Code Found – Launch Imminent?


Heists… where do we even begin!? The one year anniversary of Grand Theft Auto V’s launch recently passed and heists, a feature promised and touted by Rockstar as a major part of the game, are still missing from GTA Online.

We’ve have update upon update, and controversy after controversy in respect of GTA Online, and yet heists are still nowhere to be found… even with the launch of GTA 5 on the Xbox One and Playstation 4 coming next month in November, and the PC version following in January next year.

Are heists, finally, almost upon us though? User “funmw2″ from the GTAForums seems to think so and recently posted the code you can see below. Apparently it was added to the source code within GTA V as part of The Last Man Standing update that went live just a few days ago.

  • [0x02084EA9] GTA Online: Complete a Heist finale without anyone dying.
  • [0x02814D53] You completed a Heist prep mission.
  • [0x0B613162] You completed a Heist finale without taking any damage.
  • [0x0D1CCCEE] GTA Online: Invest your hard earned cash to set up a Heist.
  • [0x1279D064] You completed The Pacific Standard Job as Heist Leader or Crew.
  • [0x18E0B12D] GTA Online: Earn 5 gold medals across Heist preps and finales.
  • [0x2461135F] You earned 25 gold medals across Heist preps and finales.
  • [0x2B55B227] You invested your hard earned cash and set up a Heist.
  • [0x2DD110E8] GTA Online: Complete a Heist prep mission.
  • [0x2EBD3538] You earned 5 gold medals across Heist preps and finales.
  • [0x3DDD9050] GTA Online: Complete a Heist finale without taking any damage.
  • [0x41A4A445] GTA Online: Complete The Prison Break as Heist Leader or Crew.
  • [0x4FDE48C5] GTA Online: As Heist Leader set the finale cut as 25% across all players.
  • [0x68870839] You completed a Heist finale without anyone dying.
  • [0x8AA2D780] Prep Mission
  • [0x8B59FB4E] Heist
  • [0x91F12997] As Heist Leader you set the finale cut as 25% across all players.
  • [0x93EF3B70] GTA Online: Complete The Pacific Standard Job as Heist Leader or Crew.
  • [0xB0D21411] GTA Online: Earn 25 gold medals across Heist preps and finales.
  • [0xC8AA9219] You completed The Humane Labs Raid as Heist Leader or Crew.
  • [0xF59037BD] GTA Online: Complete The Humane Labs Raid as Heist Leader or Crew.

As you can see it appears to be a list of Achievements/Trophies that can be earned while carrying out heists. Given the code was literally only just included within the “live game”, does this mean that Rockstar Games are actually preparing to open up/launch heists publicly in GTA Online?

Let us know what you think… the crew here at GTA 5 Cheats think that heists will be launched some time this month, prior to the launch of the game on the Xbox One and PS4 next month in November. What do you think?

Official First-Person Mode in GTA V?

GTA V first person

In January and July, we shared footage from fan-made mods that added a first-person view to GTA V. It’s one of the potential mods for the upcoming PC version a lot of fans are hoping for. But what if you don’t need a mod at all? What if the remastered versions of GTA V for the PC, PS4, and Xbox One have official first-person modes already?

Thanks to Gamechup, we learned that Rockstar recently announced a first-person mode. The statement was deleted, but not before a user from GTAforums got a screenshot.


The relevant section says:

“In addition to the above features, you’ll see:

  • A brand new first person mode for vehicles that shows the interior of the vehicle, including working speedometers, tachometers, dash lights, and more

  • A brand new first person mode while on foot”

First-person view for both on-foot travel and vehicles? Sounds great! Take this as a rumor for now, but since the supposed source is Rockstar itself, we think this has a good chance of being true. What do you think?

Rumor Says Heists Arrive Next Week


Despite all the announcements and updates for GTA V and GTA Online lately, we know a lot of you haven’t heard the news you want. Fans were waiting for news about heists ever since they were first announced for this past spring, and when they were delayed, the news caused resentment and disappointment. Many people believed Rockstar held them back to release them alongside the remastered versions of GTA V, but a new rumor claims we’ll see heists on the Xbox 360 and PS3 before the new versions come out.

Next week, in fact.

Youtube user DomisLive believes heists may come to GTA Online on Tuesday, September 23. Of course, this is just a rumor, but DomisLive is the same one who discovered news of the I’m Not a Hipster Update, among other things.

The GTA V servers and Rockstar Social Club went down 9:00 AM ET today and will remain down until 10:00 AM ET tomorrow, because of maintenance being performed on the leaderboards. Since past rumors claim the heists will be accompanied by revamped leaderboards, this could be a good sign.

For the full reasoning behind DomisLive’s prediction that heists are less than a week away, check out his video.

What do you think? Is this rumor just false speculation, or could heists really be on their way?

Latest Remastered Release Date Rumor is October


Someone just posted the Fred Meyer reservation card that you can see above for Grand Theft Auto V on the Playstation 4 (for those of you outside the US, Fred Meyer is a chain of super stores).

What’s the big deal? Well, the reservation card has a release date of October 28 for the game – as in next month! The release date is of course qualified with the usual “subject to change” statement.

No, this still isn’t official confirmation from Rockstar, but it’s still better than a delay announcement right? And it’s even just under a month before the last possible release date we reported (November 18 at Newegg).

We’re getting a little tired of these incremental release date possibility posts just as much as you guys, however it’s important to cover the next-gen console and PC release of GTA 5 as much as possible for our fans. It will also be a very interesting exercise to go back and compare all these rumored dates to what it actually turns out to be!

Anyway, we live in hope. Being able to play GTA V on PC as early as next month would be nice!
