This new content will arrive in 2021, but Take Two offered no more details on what form the content will take. Take Two’s president, Karl Slatoff, also promised that the next-generation versions of Grand Theft Auto 5 - which also includes a standalone version of GTA Online, as revealed as part of Sony’s PS5 reveal stream - will have a variety of technical improvements that will make it “more responsive”.

As for that new content, it’s unrevealed as to if it will be available simultaneously with the next-gen version’s launch, or deployed in a staggered release schedule.
