We were all excited for the new content of the I'm Not A Hipster update for GTA Online, but we couldn't help but notice the lack of promised heists. Rockstar has responded.

Adding an addendum to its recent post detailing the I'm Not a Hipster update, Rockstar offered the following statement:

For those of you asking about other upcoming GTA Online updates, we have lots more in store coming your way soon. 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. We are very sorry for the delay, and are working hard to bring them to you as soon as we can. 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. Stay tuned for more information on that as well as lots of other ongoing content updates, enhancements and additions to the world of GTA Online that are on the way.

Thank you all, and we will also have information coming your way here at the Newswire later today on The “I’m Not A Hipster” Event Weekend happening this Friday-Sun with lots of special additional bonuses, contests and more.

Our Take
Grand Theft Auto V was one of my favorite games of last year, but I cooled on the online portion of the game pretty quickly. Single-player is just my personal preference. That being said, The heists could certainly convince me to give the online mode another shot. I appreciate Rockstar's candor regarding the delay, and I'm sure they will be worth the wait.
