Yesterday's Hipster update for Grand Theft Auto Online raised a few questions. Like "where are the online heists?" and "no seriously, why haven't we gotten the online heists yet?" Rockstar isn't immune to the feedback, and has issued a statement apologizing for the delay.

"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," the studio said in a statement.

"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."

      Weren't online heists supposed to be out a launch? Or a couple months after launch? Wow.

        I remember them being mentioned in the GTA Online promo trailers. I have to wonder if heists were a later addition or didn't pan out so went back in to development. You can tell they meant for it to be in the game at launch with the whole concept of Job points. At the moment there is no purpose earning JP points.

        It was always a post launch thing with no real date. At this point it seems like heists may not even make the PC/PS4/XO release.

      I'm going to assume it will be ready to launch at or shortly after the next gen + PC ports come out.
