Still no word on Heists for GTA Online following Take-Two's earnings call
Rockstar Games' parent-company Take-Two yesterday held its Q1 2015 earnings call, but sadly we learned nothing new about the future of Grand Theft Auto Online, particularly the eagerly awaited Heists.
Take-Two CFO Lainie Goldstein did say hint that "there may be some free downloadable content" that's given out during the year, but any major announcements in terms of new features is left up to Rockstar.
"We're not really able to give much more color on GTA Online. It's not for want of excitement. We have a great deal of excitement. But when we start getting into content and marketing announcements, that's really driven by the label," added Take-Two CEO Strauss Zelnick.
"We have said though, and I want to reiterate, that the release of GTA Online has been extraordinarily favorable for consumers and for us. We're immensely grateful to Rockstar for the incredible product that they delivered, the incredible consumer experience. And we remain optimistic about what GTA Online can be both for current gen and next-gen."
Back in June, Rockstar provided a brief statement on the delayed release of heists, which were originally supposed to be implemented in the spring. "We are very sorry for the delay, and are working hard to bring them to you as soon as we can," Rockstar said. "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."
We will don't know when Heists will be implemented in GTA Online, but I suspect Rockstar is waiting until the release of the Xbox One and PS4 versions of the game to announce it.
