While there's not much GTA Online Winter Update 2023 official information available at the moment, a renowned leaker named Lucas7yoshi has revealed several new pieces of information about it on the internet. The user shared the details on both fan forum and social media, which made fans curious about what the studio is planning to add with the DLC patch.

Interestingly, the Grand Theft Auto Online winter update 2023 will also follow the same “scaled-down pattern” that Rockstar Games has been implementing for the past some time. However, gamers are still excited to receive new features and content before 2024.

On December 7, 2023, Lucas7yoshi disclosed the following details for the upcoming GTA Online Winter Update 2023:

  • New missions related to vehicle robberies
  • Vehicle robbery missions related to a submarine
  • Robbing vehicles from the Maze Bank Tower, a cargo ship, the Mission Row area, and The Diamond Casino & Resort.
  • Around 25 new tattoos
  • Around 150 new clothing items
  • No extra garage space for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC players
  • One or two new weapons

The leaker later clarified on their X profile that they could not find any details related to new vehicles in GTA Online December Update 2023 update at the moment. Moreover, one of the weapons they mentioned could be named the "Battle Rifle." The other one has yet to be verified, as it could be a mission-specific tracking device only.

Although the developers haven’t confirmed the latest leaked details yet, the studio released an official Newswire on November 30, 2023, revealing several upcoming changes. Some of them are as follows:

  • A new Salvage Yard business named Red’s Auto Parts
  • Rockstar Games 25th Anniversary souvenirs
  • Animals returning to the multiplayer version of the game on PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X|S
  • New Vinewood Club Garage for paid subscribers
  • Changes to the Interaction Menu
  • Car trading option for old-gen and PC players, etc.

The studio also mentioned the inclusion of new holiday game modes, music, festive surprises, birthday gifts for all Grand Theft Auto Online players' in-game characters, and many more.

On December 10, 2023, Rockstar released pre-load for the upcoming winter update for PlayStation users. Here's how much space it needs depending on the platform:

  • PS4 - 3GB (approx.)
  • PS5 - 6.212GB

Unfortunately, the developers have yet to announce the GTA 5 winter update 2023 release date. The Grand Theft Auto 6 trailer is still the talk of the town, and the studio is presumably waiting for the craze to settle down a bit.
