Rockstar Games announced its next big Grand Theft Auto Online heist called “The Heist Challenge”, where users need to steal $100 billion as a community.
Rockstar Games tweeted: “The Heist Challenge: If the community can collectively steal GTA$100 Billion across all GTA Online Heist Finales between now and November 18th, we’ll reward everybody with a special new vehicle, free of charge for a limited time this December.
The game developer said that to help get ready for the upcoming release of the next evolution in Heist gameplay, the GTA Online community has the chance to take down a special kind of score. If players complete the task by November 18, the entire community will be given a new vehicle for free.

Despite the announcement, there’s still no detailed information about the heist. Previously, Rockstar has stated that its next heist will be in an entirely new location. Some players have discovered clues pointing to the new heist. Twitter user ‘TezFunz2’ posted some photos detailing his findings.
Over at the Diamond Casino, some construction work has begun. This seems rather odd because the previous heist took place at the casino, so this could be related to prep work.
Tom Connors wrote to the players that despite construction work at the Diamond, please be assured noise levels are low and champagne sales are high.
It will be interesting to see if this new heist ends up correlating to the re-release of GTA 5 on PlayStation 5 soon, where GTA Online will be free for the first three months.
Little is known about the game and its next-gen port, except that it will be available in the second half of 2021 and will feature some improvements to graphics and performance. You can watch The Heist Challenge teaser here. Stay tuned in here for the latest gaming news.
