GTA Online: Cayo Perico Heist Coming In Winter Update

Rockstar have announced that GTA Online is getting a new Heist! The Cayo Perico Heist is the “biggest heist yet” and lands December 15.

In a Twitter announcement earlier this week, GTA Online developers Rockstar Games have given fans the first bit of information regarding their pre-planned Winter Update.

The Cayo Perico Heist will have players infiltrate a remote island compound in the “biggest, most daring, and action-packed addition” to the online mode yet! Check out the Tweet below:

The GTA Online Winter Update is scheduled to be available December 15 and a Blog Post has detailed what’s in-store for players.

It’s up to you to find a way to breach Cayo Perico, one of the most secure private islands in the entire world, evade or neutralize the heavily armed security forces stationed there, and escape with valuable evidence along with as much art, gold and drug money as you can carry.

The Cayo Perico Heist appears to hint that GTA Online will finally get a long-requested and long-rumoured map expansion which will facilitate this Heist.

Choose your tools. Choose your approach. Choose your crew – or even go it entirely alone. Just make it back to Los Santos in one piece.
