Summer Update Content
Rockstar has confirmed that a host of new activities will be hitting GTA Online next week.
The new patch will feature everything from new co-op missions launched from your Super Yacht to new Open Wheel Races, new vehicles to acquire and much more.
Galaxy Super Yacht
Galaxy Super Yacht owners will be able to engage in an all-new series of missions, either alone or with up to three teammates. It’s set to include ‘everything from deep-sea diving to high-speed hi-jinks on the high seas’ and we can’t wait!
New Business Battles & Adversary Modes
There will also be brand new Business Battles in ‘some surprising locations for serious rewards’. The Diamond Casino & Resort will also be home to a number of Adversary Modes taking place on the premises.
Auto websites will see more than a dozen new vehicles become available to purchase, including rides for Benny to customise, off-roaders, tunable sports cars and a pair of new Open Wheel cars.
‘Push them to the limits in a series of new Open Wheel Races – or design your own street circuit with the new Open Wheel Race Creator’.
General Improvements & Fixes
Finally, there will be a number of general improvements and fixes, as well as the continuation of the weekly special events and bonuses to take part in.
Biggest GTA Online Update EVER
Rockstar also mentioned that later this year we can expect the biggest GTA Online update ever!
This update will feature the ‘latest take on Heists in an entirely new location.’

Naturally, this is creating various theories and predictions surrounding where the new location will be.
Speculations range from revisiting old maps in the series, such as Vice City, or San Andreas, or even places within GTA 5 itself like North Yankton.
We can also assume that new heists are likely to feature in the update. Could these be tied in with the new location? With no more clues from Rockstar, we can only speculate for now.
