Merryweather Sale:

As for the aforementioned double GTA$ and RP, here is the full schedule:

  • Friday, May 13 through to Sunday, May 15 - Brand-new In and Out IV, V, and VI maps
  • Monday, May 16 through to Tuesday, May 17 - Cross The Line I, Come Out To Play V, and Till Death Do Us Part II

Finally, Rockstar confirmed that the new In and Out mode maps released today are set in the Grand Senora Desert, Los Santos International Airport, and at Dignity Village.

Looking beyond this update, Rockstar recently teased that GTA Online will receive "massive, feature-rich" expansions later this year involving "cunning stunts" and "further adventures in finance and felony," among other things.

In other news about GTA Online, documents in the Leslie Benzies vs. Take-Two lawsuit revealed that the multiplayer mode has already brought in more than $500 million in revenue from microtransactions.

Single-player DLC for GTA V is still under consideration, but the big numbers for GTA Online may explain why Rockstar appears to be prioritizing multiplayer content at this time.
