Rockstar Games posted a teaser trailer and some of the details related to the upcoming Cayo Perico Heist, the first one taking place outside of Los Santos.

Cayo Perico Heist is coming to GTA Online on December 15, 2020. As far as the story goes, the private island where this part of the game will take place serves as a hub for hedonistic inhabitants of the GTA universe but also as the hub of El Rubio's drug empire.

El Rubio is apparently the leading drug trafficker in the world and the supplier of the Madrazo family. If you wondered what Martin's channels for funding his criminal empire during the events of GTAO and GTA story mode are, this is it.

Naturally, wherever our mute protagonists go, criminal activities follow. There is apparently "an untold fortune in art, gold and drug money" that is scattered all over the island and those brave enough to take on El Rubio's private army might just get the score of their lifetime.

According to the trailer, we will need to gain access to proper submarines this time around, like the ones seen in The Doomsday Heist and a particularly lucrative problem of Russian origin. This likely means we will be able to purchase the subby once the update goes live and fans are already lamenting their wallets' imminent doom.

According to Rockstar, Cayo Perico Heist as the biggest one in GTAO so far. A content drop of such scope in GTAO will probably not sit well with Red Dead Online fans as they are starved for something new, as opposed to just more bounties.
