GTA V Receiving Heists Early 2015

Rockstar has finally announced that to ease the wait for Grand Theft Auto: Online's long-awaited Heists.

Some time is still needed to finish GTA Online's Heists, but fear not. Players will be getting a "small Christmas gift" in an effort to "keep you entertained" until heists are released. Hopefully the Christmas gift should help make the month or two of waiting a little longer. As for what will be coming to GTA Online this Christmas. 

Heists were a much bigger challenge to create than we had originally anticipated. Early versions were simply not good enough and had to be scrapped more than once as we honed in on how we thought they should work. We’re happy to say that the pack we are now finalizing is something we are excited by and eager to release as soon as it is ready.
