"Quick boys, bag the update"

For many, Grand Theft Auto V's online world has been the source of a lot of mayhem-fuelled fun since the game launched last year, but for others, it's been something of a disappointment despite Rockstar's consistent post-release support. Unfortunately, those who were looking forward to robbing banks with a group of friends back in 2013 still aren't able to do so, and although the developer has stated that the highly requested update is in the works, it simply isn't ready yet.

Posting in the comments section of its official site, Rockstar reassured fans regarding future content, writing "for those of you asking about other upcoming GTA Online updates, we have lots more in store coming your way soon," before pointing out that "we know many fans have been eagerly awaiting the release of the Online Heists that we had planned to release for you this spring, and they are taking more time to create than originally anticipated".

Having just released a content heavy patch, it perhaps isn't completely fair to come down on the studio like a ton of bricks just yet, but there's no denying that the wait has been rather extreme. Nevertheless, the developer goes on to apologise for the delay and ensures readers that it's "working hard to bring Online Heists to you as soon as we can". How long have you been camped outside of a bank waiting for the update to arrive? Has Grand Theft Auto Online managed to keep your attention? Trip the alarms in the comments section below.
