GTA Online players will be able to download the major new summer patch, which has been dubbed the Los Santos Summer Special, next week. Rockstar Games has today confirmed that the GTA Online summer update will have a release date of Tuesday August 11. A release time has not been confirmed but previously major Grand Theft Auto 5 Online updates (such as the Diamond Casino update) have launched by 10am BST on release day.
Announcing the launch of the GTA Online summer update the Rockstar Games Twitter posted: “The Los Santos Summer Special hits GTA Online on August 11th.

This won’t be the only GTA Online patch arriving this year with further updates being launched that will boast general improvement and fixes.
