Ah the GTA Heist, one of my favourite pastimes from the single player campaign of GTAV – why then was it absent from GTA Online? Well the good news is that it won’t be absent for much longer. Heists are coming in “early 2015′ and will allow you and three mates to plan, prepare and rob the rich folk of Los Santos and Blaine County.
Check out the trailer below and prepare yourselves for one great big payday!
Although I have long left the days of Xbox 360 and GTA V behind until I will get my ass in gear and devote a decent playthrough on the upcoming Xbox One version – it has been reported that Rockstar Games are cracking down on money launderers in-game, otherwise known as those who have found exploits to cheat a few million dollars!
According to LatinTimes, several prominent GTA 5 YouTubers over the weekend have faced bans by showing various methods to obtain unlimited money in videos. As YouTube videos are often the viral source for money leaks and cheats, Rockstar Games has allegedly banned well-known GTA 5 YouTubers: LispyJimmy, Dynasty, Sernando, Sir Weed, and Glitch Master, for sharing the exploits.
Another popular Youtuber, DomisLive claims that Rockstar Games have undercover agents moderating the lobbies to catch cheaters in the act, but are not only banning IP addresses – your Xbox Live Account too!
Thursday July 3rd through Sunday July 6th. San Andreas will be celebrating the birthplace of freedom with big RP & GTA$ bonuses, patriotic discounts at Ammu-Nation, giveaways and lots more – all as part of the Grand Theft Auto Online Independence Day Event Weekend.

I won’t try and talk all gangster like again, I promise.
Here’s the word from Rockstar Games. See you all in Los Santos tonight.
Attention all Grand Theft Auto Online players, we have begun the Stimulus Package direct deposit into each of your in-game bank accounts. This GTA$500,000 deposit applies to all GTA Online players in the month of October 2013.
We expect that it will take up to 2 full days for the Stimulus Package to be fully delivered to the entire player base from October 2013, so please be patient if you do not see it appearing in your in-game bank account just yet. We will update this post on Friday when we expect all the GTA$ Stimulus Package deposits to have been completed.
Thanks go out to everyone for their continued patience and understanding while we worked through these issues, and we can’t wait to bring more into the world of GTA Online. On that note, stay tuned for more details on the Beach Bum update soon along with upcoming Social Club event announcements and more here at the Newswire.
