The GTA Online heists are here! It only took Rockstar over 500 days to finish them, after initially announcing that they would be released in December 2013… GTA Online has changed dramatically since the initial launch on the Xbox 360 and the PS3, it is now on the current-generation consoles and soon on PC.
