In this article, we will cover the latest changes in GTA V and GTA Online. From minor hotfixes to major overhauls that completely change the game. Be sure to refer to this page whenever you need a quick refresher on the latest happenings in the world of GTA 5.
GTA Online Patch Notes: Los Santos Drug Wars Update
The next big update for GTA V is for the GTA Online Los Santos Drug Wars update, which is scheduled to be released on December 13th.
The last major title update Rockstar released was for the Criminal Enterprises update and this was ‘Title Update 1.61’. This was then followed by some minor hotfixes for 1.62 and 1.63. We expect the next GTA Online Patch to be for ‘Title Update 1.64’, but we’ll find out when the update starts rolling out.
At the time of writing, there are no official patch notes, but Rockstar has revealed a lot of official information about the update in the run-up to its release. Below is a look at all the details we know so far:
