Ever since GTA 5 launched almost six years ago Grand Theft Auto players have been promised that a casino is “opening soon”.
But as the years went by so did the wait for the GTA casino to actually open its doors, with the promise of a new gambling den becoming a meme among GTA fans.
However, in the run-up to E3 2019 a GTA 5 Online patch removed the “opening soon” sign while construction cones were placed near the front entrance.
And now Rockstar Games has confirmed that the GTA casino is coming soon.
In a tweet this evening the Rockstar Games Twitter posted: “Opening soon: A luxury casino in the heart of Vinewood”.
After the “opening soon” sign disappeared from the casino last week a popular dataminer revealed that its doors would be opening soon.
GTA dataminer Tezfun tweeted: “There were rumors that GTAO Next Update will feature the casino, I can confirm it.
“Just now, R* have updated the background script to set specific dates that will apply changes to the casino.
“You’ll notice changes happening near the casino as we move closer to release.#GTAOnline”.
GTA 5 and GTA Online fans are speculating that the casino could open when a brand new update launches at the end of June or early July.
