GTA Online’s Heists are delayed, but still coming

Fans were disappointed when the most recent GTA Online update did not include any mention of the long-awaited cooperative Heists that had been promised for a spring update, but Rockstar wants you to know that the dev team has not forgotten.

In a comment on its Newswire post for the “I’m Not a Hipster” Update, a Rockstar spokesperson apologized for the delay, admitting that the Online Heists were taking long than anticipated to get right. The admission came with expressions of gratitude for their fans’ continued support and an assurance that work continues on the promised feature.

Rockstar also took the opportunity to announce that Social Club members will be treated to a special “I’m Not a Hipster” Event Weekend of bonus challenges and exclusive t-shirts to celebrate the new content patch.

Here’s the Heists-relevant bit from the Newswire comment, in case you’re curious:
