GTA Online Insider Teases Liberty City Map Expansion
According to a new rumor, Rockstar Games is preparing a major update for GTA online which will come with a Liberty City map expansion. As you’d expect, this will come with new activities for players to participate in, including a “Cops ‘n Crooks mode” and a fight between players and Don Percival, a major antagonist of GTA 5. To complement that, there will apparently be 20 new radio stations, including one called Carcer Soul FM. And that’s about the extent of the report.
As for the relationship, it comes from the way XFire and GTA leak, Matheusvictorbr. The former presumably verified the information, at least to some degree, but that’s not explicitly stated one way or another. That said, if this all sounds familiar, that’s because this isn’t the first time the latter has floated this information, but previously some of the aforementioned finer details were missing.
As for Liberty City, for those who don’t know, it’s the show’s fictional take on New York. This is particularly the framework of GTA 3 and grand theft auto 4. Of course, characters from these two games could reappear with this expansion, if it is real. It is also possible that this is related to the rumors that Michael, one of the GTA 5 protagonists, gets its own version of The Contract update, which featured Franklin, another GTA 5 protagonist.
In the past, Matheusvictorbr has suggested that this update could be released as soon as this summer. If this is true, then it will soon have to be revealed. Interestingly, the aforementioned Michael DLC rumors suggested it would be revealed soon.
Fueling the fire of this speculation have been recent observations that Rockstar Games has been oddly quiet lately, compared to how it normally is, especially with the newswire and on social media.
Speaking of Rockstar Games, he didn’t address this new rumor and the speculation it’s engulfed in. We don’t expect that to change, mainly because Rockstar Games never comments on rumours, but if for some reason it does, we’ll be sure to update the story with what’s provided, salient or not.
