The latest GTA 5 update is gearing players up for the most romantic holiday of the year. Most games come with a lot of great content to begin with. Developers release patch updates and downloadable content to add more in-game features. So the possibilities of the game are endless, as long as the developers remain creative.

Grand Theft Auto is an open world franchise that has been around for years. Rockstar Games have already made five games and are always looking for ways to make the gaming experience more fun. There are some speculations that a Valentine’s Day DLC may be in development.

GTA 5 Secret Projects

Although there is no confirmation that a new GTA 5 DLC will be available soon, fans are expecting something different during Valentine’s Day. Express UK speculated that Rockstar Games may re-release content instead of coming up with something new. Unfortunately, the studio is mum on the next projects that are lined up for the game. However, there are reports that Rockstar Games already have something else up their sleeve.

There are reports that the team is split up into smaller team to work on other projects. Some are working on the next game, others are helping San Diego With RDR2, and others are perhaps working on secret projects. In any case, there is four times less developers working on the GTA online game, so progress is much slower.

GTA 5 Fan-Made Updates

In other news, fans may not have to wait much longer for a game update. While Rockstar Games does not seem to have any announcements so far, a group of modders have made a new expansion. Originally, Rockstar Games were supposed to release an official version. Since they were taking too long, modders have come up with their own version of the Liberty City map expansion.

The modders, called OpenIV, attempted to make the huge expansion by bringing the GTA 5 update online themselves. A teaser video was posted up on their YouTube channel to confirm their great undertaking. According to OpenIV, it will be released in Spring 2017 and will fit right into the GTA Map.

Lastly, there is no specific date regarding the Liberty City map expansion by the modders. At the same time, Rockstar Games has not released any further details regarding the official Liberty City GTA 5 update as well.
