In the latest weekly update, developer Rockstar Games has teased GTA fans that the game will soon get another big Heist update.
This co-op multi-part missions were added with the Heists Update back in March 2015.
The last Heist mission was Gerald's Last Play, released in April 2020 as a part of the Diamond Casino Heist update.
A teaser about the new Heist appeared in the game as well, with players getting mysterious messages sent from Tom Connors, who says: "Dear member, in spite of construction work at the Diamond, please be assured noise levels are low and champagne sales high."
As revealed by GTA leaker Tez2, new construction props appeared around the casino.
With the goal to create hype for the upcoming update and bring back some inactive players, Rockstar is introducing "The Heist Challenge", a collective quest for the GTA Online community as a whole to work on it, as well as a set of rewards, deals, and bonuses.
