GTA Online Summer Update Releases July 20, Weekly Update Confirms

July 15 - Update Confirmed: On July 20, the underground tuner scene in Los Santos roars to life with the launch of GTA Online: Los Santos Tuners DLC.

Original Story - The GTA Online Summer Update will release on July 20, that's according to TezFunz2, one of the game's foremost leakers/fountains of knowledge.

According to Tez2, the games most recent GTA Online Weekly Update has more or less confirmed the start time for the games next DLC download.

That's because the event week which went live this morning has an end time set for Tuesday, July 20.

Event weeks will typically run Thursday to Thursday and for (normally) one week.

The existing event week lasts longer than the standard 7 days and ends on a Tuesday, which is typically when GTA Online updates are released.

So we should probably expect an official announcement or news post from Rockstar Games on the newswire later today.

Rockstar officially announced the Summer Update for GTA Online back in May, but details were thin on the ground.

Officially this is all Rockstar has told us thus far:

In Los Santos, car culture is back on the streets in a big way, with new opportunities for fans of performance and customization upgrades to get together with like-minded gearheads to test and show off their rides free from interference from authorities and other troublemakers. The renewed interest is bringing a new underground car meet into the area, along with new additions to the local racing scene — and demand for stolen vehicles has never been higher.
Expect high stakes and high action as crews hit the streets to get hold of the latest vehicles on the hot list, challenge each other in new race types, or take part in a series of multi-part robbery missions, where a precisely modified getaway vehicle will be your best weapon — all later this summer.

Naturally, fans still have many questions such as 'When does the GTA Online 2021 summer update come out' and 'what are the new cars' 'what are the new races modes' and more.

We should discover all of this very soon with the new DLC seemingly now less than two weeks away from release.
