The Criminal Enterprises, Coming July 26 to GTA Online

However, for longtime players, the most exciting changes and tweaks coming in this next big patch are all the little quality of life improvements.


Rockstar promises there will be a faster way to get to your snacks, which would make healing during a gunfight easier. Also coming: Nerfs to the infamous and annoying Oppressor Mk. 2 armed jetbike, which has long ruled the skies of GTA Online and led to many players rage quitting. Another small but massive change is that all business activities, including sell missions, will soon be fully playable in private sessions. This has been requested by fans for years and it’s nice to see it finally happening. Rockstar is also increasing the payout of old heists, races, and adversary modes and will increase how much associates and bodyguards get paid, too.

All and all, this update is exactly what GTA Online needs. After years and years of Rockstar cramming more and more into the game, often not going back to tweak or improve stuff after the fact, it’s nice to see an update focused mostly on expanding old content while also adding fan-requested features and changes.


Update: 7/22/22: Following yesterday’s announcement of The Criminal Enterprises update coming to GTA Online, Rockstar Games has shared more information on some of the quality of life changes and tweaks being made to the long-running open-world game.

The full blog post on Rockstar’s site includes a complete list of changes. It’s a long list, but here are some changes that stood out to me:


Rockstar says these changes came directly from fan feedback, which I believe. Many of these changes have long been requested by fans for years. While there are still many things that can be modified and improved in GTA Online, this upcoming update will go a long way toward making the game feel more streamlined, modern, and fun.

All of this and more goes live when the Criminal Enterprises update lands on July 26 across all platforms.
