Below, we have everything we know about the GTA Online Festive Surprise Winter Update, including when it might begin.

Latest - Release Date Confirmed


At the moment, we don't know whether the GTA Online Festive Surprise update for 2021 is going to be a sizeable expansion like Los Santos Tuners or more of a minor update like the Halloween content that was added last month.

Rockstar Games, however, has given us an idea of the release date via the December 2 weekly update.

The December 2 weekly update event has been extended past the normal 7 days and will end on Tuesday, December 14. Thankfully, that's very telling.

The GTA Online Winter Update for 2021 should begin on December 14 and official confirmation should come very soon.


"CODENAME FIXERS" - Dr Dre Collab incoming?

TezFunz2, a GTA Online commentator and leaker, has suggested that the rumoured Dr Dre x Grand Theft Auto collaboration is coming sooner than we thought.

According to the tweet below, the next major update is codenamed "Fixers" and it could feature a music-themed expansion and Dr Dre himself! With the Los Santos Tuners update adding the LS Car Meet and bringing "Car Culture" to GTA Online, a music-themed expansion could be huge.

At the moment, though, we don't know for sure what's coming. Rockstar Games is cooking something up and we might see more from them a lot sooner than you might think. Here's when we think the update will drop...

Leaks and Rumours

Not much has come out about what may be included in the GTA Online Winter Update but we do have some information to work with. Some data mining has revealed that Nightclubs may play a big role in an upcoming update.


Most of the signs also suggest that music will play a huge role and this is no surprise given Rockstar's involvement in the industry. It could be that a Nightclub will play host to the next major heist or that they will become an instanced area from contracts as opposed to just free roam.

Whatever the new GTA Online update brings, it's sure to be a gamechanger and continue Rockstar's fine form by adding content to their long-running and hugely popular multiplayer experience.
