The GTA community is abuzz with rumours that Rockstar Games may have accidentally leaked some details pertaining to the forthcoming DLC in GTA Online. Meanwhile, renowned YouTuber MrBossFTW (aka Ross) reveals a few set expectations from the fans, ahead of the DLC release on 15 November.
Before going ahead with the details of the speculation, it must be noted that the current playlist event which started on 8 November will continue all the way up to 21 November in GTA Online. Rockstar had recently confirmed on its newswire post that the new premium races as well as double GTA$ and RP bonuses would continue to exist until 21 November.
One glance at the rumoured list of unavailable vehicles (see screenshot above) suggests that the Esskey is expected to be released into the game on 15 November which is just a few hours away from now.
However, Rockstar will have to update the tunables first wherein certain in-game features could be dynamically turned on or off, before adding new DLC content in the game.
Apart from adjusting the tunables, Rockstar is expected to add new discounts and bonuses in the game as suggested by the recently leaked DLC files for GTA Online. An avid video gamer and graphic designer, Adam aka @CaPn_bOnEs, has revealed a few screenshots pertaining to the in-game loading screens via Twitter, suggesting that the game maker may have already activated the new event week in the game.
According to Adam, we might be seeing special VIP discounts being announced this week including 50% off on executive offices and 25% off on office interiors.
The tweet also suggests that the CEO of any organisation can conduct business deals from the confines of his armoured HVY Insurgent Pick-Up or the luxurious Galaxy Super Yacht.
It is further reported that the special VIP discounts will be available until 21 November. However, Ross clarifies that no such discounts exist in the game till now.
As Ross explains, there have been multiple sightings of the VIP discount offer popping up randomly on players' loading screens in GTA Online. So, the leak appears to be legitimate and we can just hope that it will indeed come true.
Meanwhile, Rockstar has yet again updated its QA beta test file, which further strengthens the theory of an impending DLC release for GTA Online, probably the Christmas DLC in December.
With the release of Red Dead Redemption 2 sitting just around the corner, Rockstar might just delay the release of Esskey and other DLC updates for GTA Online. However, if there is any truth to the leaked DLC screenshots then we could indeed see some update coming out on 15 November.
