The Heists update for GTA Online released a few years ago and was said to be one of the major turning points for the success of GTA Online. The update included 5 heists that came with setups, larceny, and the big heists themselves.
Nothing like those heists have been released since, it’s mostly been business, nightclub, and other updates for a while. Many speculated Rockstar would add more large scale heists to the game at some point and it looks like we’ve finally gotten just that.
The Diamond Casino was released a few months ago and was met with mixed to positive reception. Many signs pointed to Rockstar adding to the update more and more as time went on. After a teaser earlier in the week, many including myself could see the writing on the wall for a big new heist update.
The writing is no longer on the wall as Rockstar has officially announced today, The Diamond Casino Heist Coming to GTA Online on December 12th.
You can read more details on the update below.
website are certain the intrusions there can only mean one thing: there’s a crew getting ready to take the whole thing down.
Infiltrating the most extravagant entertainment and luxury living complex in the entire state won’t be easy, and careful and comprehensive preparation will be rewarded to reach one hitherto unattainable goal: breach the vault at The Diamond, grab the goods and exact revenge on the Duggan family.
The Diamond Casino Heist is an all-new approach to Heist architecture and execution: one huge gameplay-packed operation as you work with the Cheng family to infiltrate the most secure building in all of Los Santos. Featuring a diverse range of opportunities for set-up and prep missions that shape your plan of attack, multiple paths of approach, constantly changing security measures and a dizzying array of choices once inside. Expect outcomes for you and your crew to change on the fly as you deal with each new situation, leading to more choices mid-mission. Even if the best laid plans go sideways, you’ll have the opportunity to keep the mission afloat without failing by shooting your way out with your remaining team lives, all allowing the Heist to be highly replayable with new scenarios unfolding each time.
In order to plan the biggest Heist ever perpetrated in Los Santos, Heist crew leaders will setup an unexpected new commercial venture as a front, a retro Arcade business property shrouding the nerve center within where Heist operations are staged and rehearsed. While the business runs above, down below you can practice hacking keypads or cracking vault doors, store equipment and getaway vehicles, and owners of existing businesses can add a Master Control Terminal to handle all current operations.
