Rockstar Games will offer new DLC for GTA fans to celebrate this year's Valentine's Day. The game developer gave a teaser about the upcoming expansion pack in their recent announcement.  Now, here are the latest details about the next downloadable content of Grand Theft Auto 5 and updates for the much-awaited Grand Theft Auto 6.

In a released announcment two weeks ago, Rockstar Games presented new features for GTA 5 Online. Aside from that, the game developer teased fans about the Valentine's Day DLC. In the last part of the announcement, the developer wrote "items you're sure to fall in love with" for the month of February.

With the timing of announcement and reference to love, it seems that the developer has something to offer this coming Valentine's Day.  There's still no official word from the Rockstar officials, but next Thursday or Friday GTA gamers might see new updates in the game.

 GTA 5 Online also offered new additions to PC, PS4 and Xbox One players. Gamers will definitely enjoy flying in the air in the new Adversary Mode. In the "Drop Zone", groups of paratroopers jump from Cargobobs hovering high above, then they will race to the exposed patch of terra firma. Team effort is needed here, as players have to attack and defend as a unit.

With four teams and up to 16 players zeroed in on the target area, this mode is fast, chaotic and prone to huge swings in fortune.

Additionally, Karin Sultan and Bravado Banshee are new racecars in GTA 5.

Meanwhile, today's online reports said the launching of GTA 6 might be postponed after the exit of Leslie Benzies --  the brain behind the GTA game  The new edition of action-adventure game is expected to release in 2018, four years after GTA 5 became available. But with the unexpected resignation of Benzies, Rockstar Games might release GTA 6 in 2019 or even 2020, according to International Business Times.

Benzies' team of developers in the Scotland-based Rockstar North played a large role in the development of GTA releases in the past two decades. The studio also created the first Manhunt and Red Dead Redemption.

"We are very grateful for Leslie's contributions to Rockstar over the last 15 years as we worked together to make some amazing games," the company's official statement about the exit of Benzies.

It is also worth noting that Rockstar Games might speed up the development of GTA 6 to please their subscribers. The game franchise is proved to be one of the highest grossing games of all time.  Last week, GTA 5 sold more than 60 million copies across all five platforms. Moreover, within just three days of its release it earned more than $1bn in revenue.
