Dataminers well versed in predicting when a new GTA 5 Online update is going to be released have some bad news for fans this week.
While it won’t come as much of a surprise, it doesn’t look like the new Grand Theft Auto Casino update will be launched this week.
Thursday would be the next logical date for the grand opening of the Casino, which was confirmed part of the next major DLC release by Rockstar Game this month.
But GTA Online information experts, such as TezFunz, who keep an eye on the game’s database, report that no big changes are coming this week.
And this means that the next major update for GTA 5 Online won’t be arriving in June 2019.
“GTA Online new update isn’t coming tomorrow,” they posted on Twitter.
“Not surprising, Rockstar has said, “later this summer”. That’s just to ensure the QA process is doing well for the next update, if they give us a date and a bug force them to delay it, that will be very bad.
“My expectation? Mid-July.”
As noted above, Rockstar has given themselves a large release window to work with when it comes to the Casino update.
They technically have until September 2019 to launch their next multiplayer expansion, although it seems unlikely fans will be waiting that long.
Having started sharing news about the upcoming Online DLC, it would make sense that Rockstar Games would be closer to launch.
Thursday, July 4, seems like the earliest date we could see more news shared about the new GTA 5 Online update.
Looking at how past updates have been released, it would make sense for the development team to reveal the final details surrounding the Casino expansions, followed by the official launch soon after.
The good news is that the new update will be released on each platform at the same time, so no waiting around for PS4 and Xbox One gamers.
We also need to factor in the launch of new content for Red Dead Redemption 2 Online, which is expected during Summer 2019 too.
We would predict that the new Grand Theft Auto update would be released first, however, Rockstar Games have not announced a dual schedule as of yet.
Here’s more on what we know about the upcoming Diamond Casino and Resort, which will be launched in the coming months: “
