GTA Online Heists Information Revealed By Source Code?

Alleged details on the GTA Online Heists Update were uncovered by players digging through the game's source code. They shed some light on the types of missions included with the highly anticipated update.

The details were summarized by DomIsLive in a recent video. The (again, alleged) mission list is as follows:

Prison van rescue - Criminals intercept a noose van driven by NPCs and free the gang member then take him back to the gang house. 16 cops and 16 criminals can join the mission. Opens at rank 5 and is triggered by phone call.Drop off hooker - Blips will appear in player's territories. Player has to go and pick up a prostitute and drop her off somewhere. The player has a time limit.Funeral - Gang members must escort a lieutenant's hearse through town. Rival gang members have to get in the hearse and destroy it. This triggers after Escort Crook Boss if the boss is killed. Funeral home coords 410, - 1485.Territory Takeover - Players can fight to take over territory in the game, this will produce a revenue stream for them.Fight Gangmate - Two teams have to have a fist fight with each other.

Meanwhile, driver dumps chopper and collects getaway car and escape to gang house. Skydive out office to getaway car and escape to gang house. Cops join once crook is inside the office, cops are told to arrest the crooks. FIB office has AI agents that must be shot, 2 waves of AI agents enter based on hack progress. Shoot to kill.

I assumed that the Heists Update would just include, well, heists. The mention of territory battles and hooker transportation aren't the sort of co-op efforts I was expecting. Maybe Rockstar is planning to diversify the DLC's content with competitive and solo missions. It could also be possible that some of these Jobs are actually for later updates.

Or maybe this information's just fake. The more popular a game is, the more likely that someone's passing around false information. Fallout fans are keenly aware of this rule of thumb. DomIsLive debunked some fake screenshots of the Heists Update in a more recent video:

Rockstar initially announced GTA Online's heists for a Spring release. Last week, they announced that they would miss that goal.

"We are very sorry for the delay, and are working hard to bring them to you as soon as we can," the company said in a note to players. "Please know that we are focused as always on making the best possible content for you to play and we are thankful to all of you for your patience, understanding and support."
