Gta online summer update

GTA Online’s upcoming summer update will provide fans with more content to enjoy and, of course, items to spend their money on. Let’s get into the release date and what to expect.

After receiving another weekly update recently, which saw a new vehicle take to the podium in the Casino and various updates detailed in the patch notes, news has come out surrounding a new summer update.

All this new content is suspected to be part of the rollout before releasing the next-gen version of GTA, or perhaps it’s to keep players satisfied amongst the news that GTA 6 is a long way off.

GTA’s latest update saw new survival maps introduced for players to get their hands on. However, the developers aren’t stopping there, as it seems even more content is on the way.

Popular GTA Online leaker @TezFunz2 recently stated that the summer update would be seen as early as July 22. The current update in GTA Online is expected to end on July 20, so make sure you make the most of it while you can, as, after that, players will be getting something new.

Los Santos Summer Special

The incoming car-themed summer update for GTA Online will feature new cars and robberies for players. The update seems to be focussing on racing, specifically underground racing.

Rockstar Games Newswire that was released on May 18 actually teased the update:

“In Los Santos, car culture is back on the streets in a big way, with new opportunities for fans of performance and customization upgrades to get together with like-minded gearheads to test and show off their rides free from interference from authorities and other troublemakers.”

There was also mention of “multi-part robbery missions” and a new “precisely modified getaway vehicle,” which could be a part of these robbery missions.

Although the Newswire didn’t reveal much, players should be excited for what’s to come, as it sounds like it could be quite a large update with a decent amount of new content.
