Another YouTuber iCrazy Teddy also claimed that he gathered information on VIP missions.
"Escort a VIP's car to a random landmark in the city then back to their hotel. Cops escort the car as they see the sights. Criminals are given the tour points and look out for the VIP. If driver dies, cops can drive and resume the tour," he said in his video.
Recently, Rockstar has been handing out bans (console suspensions) on players who have been involved in money lobby.
The 1.16 Update is rumoured and various leaks in source code suggested that it will contain not only new fixes but new content as well. It is likely that it will contain Heists, Zombie, Cops N' Crooks, Casinos, CIA and Assassination Missions. It has also been rumoured that it will bring Flight school content and will fix all the money glitches.
Rumours have also suggested that the game will be released on a Tuesday.
