Over the past several months, Rockstar Games has continued to deliver new online content to Grand Theft Auto V fans with plenty of free title updates that have added new features to the game, such as the ability to run a criminal organization through the “Executives and Other Criminals” update or the addition of new vehicle modification options thanks to the “Lowriders Custom Classics” DLC.
Many of these recent updates for GTA Online were released as special surprises for fans, as Rockstar Games didn’t generally announce that they were even working on the content until shortly before the new game features were actually launched. However, the developer now wants to give players a little more heads up this year after they decided to outline their update plans for what is coming to Grand Theft Auto V over the next several months.

Announcing the next big update for GTA Online, Rockstar Games revealed that users will soon be able to start their own contraband businesses thanks to an upcoming free DLC. While there was no exact date given for when this update will be released, the developer confirmed that it will add new warehouse properties which players can fill with stolen merchandise. Besides buying and selling their illegal goods for profit, GTA Online fans can also raid the warehouses of other people for the chance of stealing more contraband.
“You’ll be working with your team from a selection of big new properties that serve as both headquarters for your Organization and warehouses for your hot merchandise. Manage inventory directly from your HQ, arranging to buy and sell anything from jewels to narcotics to medical supplies from a range of nefarious suppliers. Expect the unexpected as you head out with your team to make each pickup.”
In addition to large DLC updates, Rockstar Games also promises to keep bringing smaller content patches to Grand Theft Auto Online in the form of new Adversary Modes and lowrider vehicles. Beyond brand-new Adversary Modes, players can also expect to see new maps for older matches such as the recently released “In and Out” mode.
Those who enjoy building their own custom content with GTA Online‘s in-game mission creation tools will also see a wealth of new options added to the creator this year. Outside of normal set items, players will soon be able to build their own daredevil racing courses, as future updates will bring new themed props that are specifically designed for stunt tracks.
Over the course of the past several months, Rockstar Games has also held several week-long events inside Grand Theft Auto Online, and the developer doesn’t plan to stop having these special in-game activities. The developer shared their plans to regularly host celebratory events in the months ahead that should provide users with bonus mission rewards as well as huge savings on some of the title’s more expensive weapons, vehicles, and properties.
“You may also have noticed some of our recent in-game specials and bonuses, such as the Versus Missions Week and Contact Missions Week – with opportunities to get coveted vehicles, weapons and other items on sale, and reap bonus RP and GTA$. Be on the lookout for regularly occurring event weeks like this, that will highlight a wide variety of different game content, including both recently released and fan-favorite modes, missions and some classic content that you may have not played in a while.”
While Rockstar Games has outlined their GTA Online update plans for the next several months, the developer still isn’t talking about the possibility of single-player DLC for Grand Theft Auto V. As the Inquisitr reported earlier this year, the digital profits from the game’s online mode continues to be a happy surprise even for publisher Take-Two Interactive. This ongoing success is likely a contributing factor as to why fans still haven’t seen any new single-player content.
