The next update for “GTA 5," Update 1.12, will contain heists, reported Gameranx on March 4. Though Rockstar launched its Business Update less than one week ago, the upcoming patch is rumored to bring tournaments, mansions and long-awaited heists.

Reddit users reported the latest 1.11 Business Update for “GTA Online” already allows the ability to purchase more than one apartment – and possibly even a mansion. However, those files haven't been activated by developer Rockstar.

The following text files were added after the March 4 update.

“At the printer, press ~INPUT_CONTEXT~ to collect the heist details. Press ~INPUT_CONTEXT~ to collect the heist details. Start Heist”

The file shows to participate in a heist, you must first go to the printer in your apartment’s planning room to receive the correct details and begin the heist. The text files were written specifically for the heists but are still not activated by Rockstar, which means they may be usable in the next update.

Reddit users also discussed the ability to own more than one apartment – currently, players can only set their quick GPS to “home,” or spawn at their last location. In the next update, it’s rumored players will be able to set their GPS to more than one apartment.

A tournament mode is also said to be available with the game’s next update. In this mode, players will be able to compete against one another for prizes, though they must qualify by surpassing a score or time limit. Users believe these features will be available as early as spring this year.

Rockstar confirmed major DLC packs would be available in “GTA 5” sometime in 2014, including a Capture Creator mode, new Assassination and Flight School missions for Story Mode and more.

Meanwhile, rumors of Rockstar launching “GTA 5” on PC, Xbox One and PS4 are still running rampant. Earlier this month, a PS4 version of “Grand Theft Auto 5” popped up as available for pre-order on Worten.pt, leaving gamers to wonder if Rockstar’s action-adventure title will hit shelves for Microsoft and Sony’s next-gen consoles.

The Portuguese site listed the game for sale, though no release date has been set. Eurogamer contacted the site to address the game’s listing, and Worten responded, “We would inform you that we have the information that Worten stores will sell the game in question.”

On Feb. 4, SuperGamer.cz showed the title as being available on June 13 for the PC, PS4 and Xbox One. Though many eager gamers were hoping for a PC and next-gen release, the PC cover art was somewhat suspicious. On the top of the cover, it said “Games For Windows Live,” the collective name for a set of services and software Microsoft no longer uses.

A Steam and PC version of “GTA 5” also appeared on PC game site simplycdkeys.com, listing the title for release on Sept. 19 this year.

Do you think "GTA 5" is coming to the PC and next-gen consoles?
