GTA 5 Summer DLC 2023: What to Expect

GTA online has a mid-year tradition of releasing a sweet spot for a mid-year update, and, like clockwork, every year around summertime, we get a solid helping of fresh content to sink our teeth into. This year’s release has been shroud in secrecy, and rumors and speculations abound concerning what we can expect from Rockstar Games. While there hasn’t been much news or any leaks, information spotted on Rockstar’s blog points to future tweaks and tunings, not a grand explosion of new stuff, suggesting a smaller DLC with a more intensive focus on fine-tuning some of the existing gameplay mechanics. The release date for the summer DLC is expected to be between June 12th or 13th.

GTA 6: Leaks, Release Date, and Rockstar Games

The big news in the GTA universe is that some of the developers of GTA V’s online multiplayer modes have been shifted to working on the highly anticipated GTA 6. This could signal a significant shift in focus for the developers and affect future updates to GTA V, with fewer quality-of-life improvements and fewer exploding cars. The move could also point to an earlier-than-expected release date of GTA 6, but nothing official has been announced by Rockstar Games.

GTA 5 on Older Consoles: What’s Ahead?

For those still playing GTA 5 on PS4 or Xbox One, there may be a cause for concern about what lies ahead. The new PS5 and Xbox Series X are charging full steam ahead, and there is a looming concern that Rockstar might pull the plug on updates for the older consoles. While nothing has been officially confirmed, it’s something to keep an eye on, as it could mean missing out on the summer DLC, and perhaps future ones too.

What Might be in the Next GTA Online DLC?

Rockstar has been hinting at some planned adjustments for the upcoming summer DLC, with a focus around rebalancing and tweaking the high-flying, awe-inspiring, sometimes infuriating aerial vehicles. With all the focus on planes in recent updates, it’s no surprise that Rockstar is now focusing on rebalancing to ensure a smoother gameplay experience.


While no official news about GTA 6 has been released from Rockstar Games, gamers can still expect some exciting things from GTA 5’s online multiplayer experience. The release of the Summer 2023 DLC is eagerly awaited, with rumors and speculation high. For those still playing the game on older consoles, it’s a time to keep an eye on developments.

of GTA 6 development now if that’s true it could signal a Monumental shift for our beloved online
Mayhem Fest if the Rockstar game devs have been kicked over to polishing the world of GTA 6. it
might mean that future updates to GTA online could be let’s say a tad leaner than we used
to who knows we might see more quality of life improvements and fewer exploding casts but okay
let’s not hope for fewer explosions we love the chaos and speaking of GTA 6 this developer shift
could be a sign a beacon if you will pointing us towards an earlier than expected release timeline
