Almost a year to the day since its last Heist, GTA Online embarks on its newest foray into large-scale larceny. On December 12, 2019, we got to rob The Diamond Casino & Resort. On December 15, 2020, we keep our eyes trained on the resort angle but ignore the Ocean’s 11 stuff.
GTA Online‘s next Heist is called “The Cayo Perico Heist.” It takes place on the private island of a drug kingpin, and you’re headed to his home to soak up the sun. Also, to make off with all of his “art, gold, and drug money.” It’s rare that people come back from vacation with more money than they started with. Then again, most people don’t end up with bullet wounds after vacation. Dicey tradeoff.
What’s new to this mission is that you don’t necessarily need a crew to pull it off. Rockstar says this is the first Heist that’s designed for players to solo it if they want. Of course, you can also approach it as a squad of four like the other Heists.
Rockstar vaguely outlined some aspects of the Cayo Perico Heist by listing these features: New vehicles and weapons, new social spaces to dance and party in, new guest DJs, over 100 new songs, and a “very large, very versatile, and very heavily armed submarine HQ.”
It all goes down on December 15. How quietly or how bang-bangy it goes down is up to you.
