GTA Online continues to be one of the most popular multiplayer modes on PS4 and Xbox One consoles, with a new version in development for next-gen consoles.

But while gamers will have to wait for that version to arrive later in 2021, Rockstar Games has plans to launch its next major expansion.

As usual, this will be an online affair, meaning the basic Grand Theft Auto experience will not change.

While there are no plans to offer new story content for the best-selling game, things will change in multiplayer.

GTA Online is hugely popular and is one of the reasons Grand Theft Auto V continues to top the best-selling charts in recent years.

So all eyes will be on what Rockstar Games has planned next for GTA Online on PS4, Xbox One and PC.


Rockstar Games hasn’t announced when it will release its new GTA Online Summer update, but we do have some unofficial news.

According to TezFunz on Twitter – a reliable source for GTA news – the GTA Online Summer update has a release date for Thursday, July 22.

For now, Rockstar Games has only teased its summer expansion plans, including what will be included.

This includes a new Car Meet event set to take place, with the development team telling fans earlier in July:

“GTA Online’s upcoming summer update will include the Los Santos Car Meet, the beating heart of Southern San Andreas’ car culture. Stay tuned to Newswire, more information coming soon.”

If the GTA Online Summer update comes out next week, we can probably expect a new trailer or news story in the coming days.

It’s not guaranteed, but Rockstar Games may drop something on Thursday, July 15.

This will be when the next Grand Theft Auto Online bonuses and rewards are released and now would be the perfect time to share the latest information.

However, all of this should be taken with a grain of salt until we hear more from Rockstar Games.

There’s no official guarantee that the new GTA Summer expansion will be available to play next week, and Rockstar could choose to share the announcement next week, followed by a longer wait for the patch to come out.

Rockstar recently released its new content expansion for Red Dead Online and they’ve been following this kind of thing with others in the past.

And if nothing is revealed this week, GTA fans can look forward to a new list of rewards to be announced on July 15.

Until then, these are the current highlights worth tracking down in Grand Theft Auto Online:

  • Seven new Survivals, available now
  • Double GTA$ and RP in all Survivals
  • A GTA$100K bonus for participating in one of the new Survivals
  • Triple GTA$ and RP in Freemode Events and Challenges
  • Free Sunset Tint Oversize Shades for completing a Simeon export request
  • The Vapid Retinue Mk II is the top prize at the Lucky Wheel
  • Vehicle and Property discounts: 40% off all garages, the Western Cargobob, Kraken Submersible, Lampadati Toro, and Vapid Slamtruck, plus 30% off the P-45 Nokota, V-65 Molotok, R-10 Bombushka, HVY Vetir, and Übermacht insurgent
  • Prime Gaming Bonus: Players who link their Social Club account to Prime Gaming will get a GTA$100,000 bonus for playing this week this week
