Remember when Rockstar said that the DLC Heists was right around the corner? Well, it wasn't. As a matter of fact, it wasn't around any corner.

After the release of GTA V for Xbox 360, Rockstar announced that co-op missions called Heists would be carried out to the game in the nearest future. People waited, and they waited, but it never came. Now, after that the game has been released for the Xbox One, Rockstar has finally announced (read: for real) this expansion that'll let players full off just that, heists, to make the big score. As promised, Heists will be launched for the 360 as well, Rockstar confirms, through a Q&A.

And as an some sort of "apology", Rockstar will be giving players a christmas present for them to enjoy while they eagerly and hopefully wholeheartedly make Heists as good as their fans who are waiting impatiently. No info was given on what this would be or when, but it'll be delivered.

I'll quote:

"What is the #GTAOnline Heist official release date?"
"We aren’t ready to give an official release date yet, but we are confident they will be ready early in 2015. As you may have read on IGN, Heists were a much bigger challenge to create than we had originally anticipated. Early versions were simply not good enough and had to be scrapped more than once as we honed in on how we thought they should work. We’re happy to say that the pack we are now finalizing is something we are excited by and eager to release as soon as it is ready. We, as a company, have always been about trying to make something that is good rather than hitting a date. We apologize when this gets frustrating but firmly believe that rushing out second-rate content does not do anyone any favors. Hopefully you agree that yesterday’s new Trailer is a sign that Heists are shaping up nicely, but we still need some time to fine tune them. Because we need a little time to get Heists right, we are going to give you a small Christmas gift to keep you entertained until we are done with them."

And here's the video they were talking about:
