GTA 5 Online: Servers Down for Possible Mods, DLC or Heist Update?Rockstar Games

Renowned YouTube tipster, DomisLive (aka Dom), has shared some interesting news about the possibility of Rockstar releasing some kind of DLC or Heist update on 23 September, which falls on a Tuesday.

With the gaming community celebrating the first anniversary of GTA 5 on 17 September, it seems Rockstar could indeed have some surprise for its loyal fans in the coming days as the game developer has announced that its gamer servers and Social Club will be down for Leaderboard maintenance on 18 and 19 September (Thursday and Friday) from 9am to 10am ET or 2pm to 3pm BST (UK local time).

Speculation is rife that Rockstar might actually be using this maintenance window for cleaning up the leaderboards for the upcoming DLC, which strengthens the belief that Rockstar could release the highly-anticipated Heist DLC on 23 September.

Earlier leaked information pertaining to the Heist DLC suggested that it could feature a completely revamped online leaderboard feature in GTA Online.

Apparently, the leaderboard maintenance work by Rockstar seems to be invariably connected to the Heist DLC.

In related news, another renowned YouTuber, iCrazyTeddy, sheds more light on the ensuing rumours about the impending Heist DLC release in GTA Online.

A discerning GTA 5 tipster, BL4CK IC3, has reportedly sent a couple of images to iCrazyTeddy and a few other popular YouTubers including DomisLive via Twitter, which reportedly depicts an official tweet from Rockstar Games that says: "#GTAV in celebration of the one year anniversary of GTA V Rockstar Games introduces the Heist Updte which is now available for download on the PS3 and Xbox 360."

Currently, the leaked image seems to be some kind of a photoshop fake image created for fun by an unidentified prankster, especially given the fact that Rockstar has neither posted any such messages on Twitter nor published any updates about Heist DLC on the Newswire.

Check out more such faked tweets in the video (below) that are reportedly misleading GTA 5 gamers, which have been apparently crafted using an inspect element tool that can change text, links etc temporarily.
